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!
