Jennifer Lawrence : The Face of White Privilege

Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

Jennifer Lawrence told a story about when she purposefully defiled another culture’s sacred space, and it is cringe worthy.  The fact that she tells the story unapologetically while laughing and swinging around a glass of Chardonnay really caps off the image of white privilege.  She has no clue how selfish, insulting, and disgusting her actions are.

Here is what she said on the Graham Norton Show last week: “We were filming in Hawaii, and there were … sacred … rocks — I dunno, they were ancestors, who knows — they were sacred,” said Lawrence. “And you’re not supposed to sit on them, because you’re not supposed to expose your genitalia to them.

“I, however, was in a wetsuit for this whole shoot – oh my god, they were so good for butt itching! One rock that I was butt-scratchin’ on came loose”, prompting a landslide.

“And all the Hawaiians were like: ‘Oh my god, it’s the curse!’” she said, imitating shaking her first at the sky. “And I’m in the corner going, I’m your curse. I wedged it loose with my ass.”

Let’s see:

1)  Not caring about another culture’s customs or traditions. Check
2) Unapologetically destroying native property. Check
3) Laughing about it while swilling wine. Check
4) Makes no effort to understand why what she did was wrong or insulting. Check

Here studio and army of minders are currently attempting to scrub the internet of the video because I’m sure they are afraid of a boycott on their her new movie.  Lawrence posted one of those fake apologies on Facebook Friday.  You know the one where she’s not sorry about what she did, rather sorry if YOU were offended by it:

We don’t know which sacred stones she defiled or whether the Hawaiians in the story were referring to Pele’s Curse, but it doesn’t matter, Jennifer Lawrence embodies ignorant, entitled, callous, white privilege.  I hope she is never allowed back into Hawaii.
