Jennifer Lawrence Slammed By PETA For Squirrel Skinning (and Saying "Screw PETA")

by at . Comments

Jennifer Lawrence is the latest celebrity to come under fire from PETA after she recalled in Rolling Stone how she skinned a squirrel in the movie Winter's Bone.

The Hunger Games star is receiving serious backlash from the organization after revealing that the scene wasn't fake and that she actually did skin a squirrel.

"I should say it wasn't real, for PETA," she confessed. "But screw PETA."

The Oscar nominee's comment was likely not meant to show any disrespect, but PETA is fighting back. Says the the organization's president, Ingrid Newkirk:

"She's 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.'" 

"One day I hope she will try to make up for any pain she might cause any animal who did nothing but try to eke out a humble existence in nature."

"When people kill animals, it is the animals who are 'screwed,' not PETA."

Lawrence, who will next appear in The House at the End of the Street, has yet to comment on PETA's response to her confession of harming an animal.

The big winner in all of this? Khloe Kardashian. PETA has a new target!

This personality-free asshole, should stop trying to shock! If she did skin a squirrel for her "craft", she best have eaten it. B/ doubt it. Just another big mouth, talentless, piece of garbage. Casting Couch much? B/ of course not, U were so riveting in X-Men! Douche.

PETA, whilst I love animals and would not hurt a fly, to me reminds me of the highschool bully that used to make everyone feel that they were doing something good when in reality all they were doing was making your life miserable. I dont wear leather, but I do eat meat. I still love animals. But I'm sure they'll find a way to bully me and try to make it look like in selfish and whatever.
So this young lady is right. SCREW PETA!
I'll go one further... FUCK PETA!
Yeah I said it!! Now what?! You gonna bully me too???

Why anyone still thinks PETA is an animal protector has been living under a rock. They do absolutely nothing to help animals. But, Jennifer Lawrence, Kanye West and the whole Kardashian family belong in the same knuckle dragging category as Michael Vick. Why would anyone want to hurt an animal. Shame, shame.

At her age, I did stupid stuff too. If ya kill it, ya eat it. If you're not going to eat it, don't kill it. Animals feel fear the same way we do. We're suppose to be the smart ones who don't make them feel that unnecessarily.
