Actress Jennifer Lawrence, co-star of the Hunger Games has offended the natives of Hawaii when she explained in a mocking attitude how she disrespected sites considered to be sacred on the island amidst shooting the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in 2012.
Lawrence explained how she needed “butt-scratchin,” and so she looked around and found a pile of rocks, which are considered to be of holy significance, and then she decided to scratch her butt on those very same rocks.
She said “I, however, was in a wet suit for this whole shoot – oh my god, they were so good for butt itching!”
Adding that apparently one should not expose their genitalia to the rocks, whilst raising her glass of white wine during the interview as she considered this a laughing matter, she went to say that a rock she was scratching on had wobbled free, which initiated a landslide.
Lawrence continued with her disrespectful statements and mentioned that some of the natives exclaimed “Oh my god, it’s the curse!” to which she responded by saying “I’m your curse, I wedged it loose with my ass.” According to the natives of the island, these lava rocks instigate misfortunes and sheer bad luck in which they call it “Pele’s curse.”
Social media comments expressed outrage about Lawrence’s lack of respect for the entire event, one comment stating “congratulations Jennifer Lawrence, all of Hawaii wants to scrap you. Next time respect land that’s foreign to you.”
Lawrence has not returned comments as of now to the comments, as her interview went viral and reportedly reached about 1 million people.
Jennifer Lawrence was 22 years old whilst this movie was being shot, and last August she had been titled as highest paid female actress, for the second year in a row, with a budget that reached $46 million just for 2016.
