Goofy, funny, self-deprecating and upbeat, Jennifer Lawrence is a celebrity everyone seems to love. As much as people "hate" Anne Hathaway, they adore Jennifer Lawrence. But does everyone feel that way? In the interest of finding the intersection between Jennifer Lawrence and that "hate" word, Jamie Taete, a writer for stunt-mag Vice, recently called up a bunch of hate groups to get their opinion on the Oscar-winning Hunger Games star. Here are some of the best responses he got.
From the National Socialist Freedom Movement: "A variety of different things. Say, for example, she was the victim of a flash mob." (When asked for occasions when they would defend Jennifer Lawrence.)
From the Westboro Baptist Church: "I feel good for Ben Affleck because he was kinda on the out, you know what I mean?"
From the Institute for Historical Review (Holocaust deniers): "I'm just astonished that you would ask me what I think about her. I just don't have any opinion."
From the Nation of Islam: "I'm sorry, sir, we can't participate in such things."
From the League of the South: "We're about poliitcs, we're about government, we're about personal responsibility, and my opinion about one person's acting ability is irrelevant."
From the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries: "Let me just say, real quick, the Lord's coming back. Very soon. And He's not gonna ask you how many movies you saw or which celebrities you knew. He's gonna ask you what you did for his son, Jesus."
So not everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence. But no one said they hated her!
The whole piece is very well done. Go read it.
