While filming one of the Hunger Games movies in Hawaii, the 26-year-old had a REALLY itchy butt, so she decided to scratch it on some rocks… that just happened to be sacred to the local people.
Oh, and the rocks shifting caused a mini landslide that almost killed a crew member!
After the actress shared the story, Twitter went crazy as several people tweeted their anger and frustration over Lawrence's actions:
"Hey Hawaiians, I scratched my ass with your sacred stones, broke one, almost killed a man, and 😂 at your spirituality."-Jennifer Lawrence https://t.co/1ihjGuddVy

So, that story Jennifer Lawrence told about rubbing her ass on rocks in Hawaii that she knew were sacred "or whatever" (her words)…yeesh.

Another reason Jennifer Lawrence is so annoying. Knowingly messes with something sacred to Hawiians. Then brags and makes a joke about it. https://t.co/EB6VFz0JzN

In which Jennifer Lawrence admits to vandalism of sacred archaeological treasures in Hawaii and endangering workers' lives…. https://t.co/jnrZunbfck

@prattprattpratt - I feel your pain. Sitting next to Jennifer Lawrence as she takes PRIDE in rubbing her ass on Sacred Places is AGONIZING

Jennifer Lawrence: "i literally wiped my ass with sacred symbols of Hawaii"
Disrespectful on Jennifer Lawrence's part. Fully acknowledges she was told rocks were sacred, yet goes on to celebrate her ignorance? Bye. https://t.co/eAt1tQ9c54

Why would you knowingly disrespect someone's culture and sacred artifacts and brag about it later? Smh Jennifer Lawrence is beyond cancelled

Sounds like a lot of people are done with their J.love.
But one fan came to Jen's defense, pointing out she had already told the story a few years ago and mentioned she didn't find out about the special rocks until much later:
Jennifer Lawrence first mentioned the Sacred Rocks story from Hawaii in 2013 & for the record She just found out it was sacred afterwards pic.twitter.com/9e9s7Zg1NI

And then there were those that enjoyed the story and were annoyed at the backlash:
I've never thought of getting an itch out with a rock. Damn you Jennifer Lawrence you are a clever one! 😂

And suddenly everyone hates Jennifer Lawrence for the same reason they liked her. Not like she changed just hit a touchy subject.

No but seriously, Jennifer Lawrence told a story about rubbing her butt on a rock and now she's considered the devil. People are ugly.
