Apparently, Jennifer Lawrence isn't on PETA's fan list!
The Hunger Games actress recently talked about her squirrel skinning scene in her Oscar nominated performance of Winter's Bone.
In her comments, JLaw wasn't very nice to PETA, stating:
I should say it wasn't real, for PETA. But screw PETA.
Them is fighting words…sorta!
In response, PETA prez Ingrid Newkirk stated:
[Lawrence] is young and the plight of animals somehow hasn't yet touched her heart. As Henry David Thoreau said, 'The squirrel you kill in jest, dies in earnest.'
We are told that this squirrel was hit by a car, but when people kill animals, it is the animals who are 'screwed,' not PETA, and one day I hope she will try to make up for any pain she might have caused any animal who did nothing but try to eke out a humble existence in nature.
Classy with the HDT quote, PETA!
Still, Jen will have to learn that being a star means everyone will be paying attention to what she says.
It's just up to her to see if she cares or not!
