Joan Rivers Lashes out at Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence has never been silent about her distaste for the media’s criticism of people’s body image and attire, but it was her comment about E! network’s “Fashion Police” that sent Joan Rivers, the sassy comedian and host, into a hissy.
About a month ago, Lawrence spoke to a crowd of fans during a Yahoo chat, and when she was asked how to respond to negative nancies who criticize people for their looks, her response was less than gentle.
“ Well, screw those people,” Lawrence said.
The Hunger Games starlet then went on to say a few other things about her experience with criticism growing up and about society’s perception of airbrushed models. However, it was her mention of the show “Fashion Police” in particular that started the seemingly endless shade tirade from Rivers.
“ There’s shows like the ‘Fashion Police’ and things like that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on things,” Lawrence said. “ They put values in all the things that are wrong and that it’s OK to point at people and call them ugly and call them fat and they call it ‘fun’.”
Although, the comment was not intended to be a direct attack against the show, the queen of shade herself, Joan Rivers, took it to the heart a little bit. She fired back at Lawrence in a way that only Joan is capable of.
“It’s funny how Jennifer Lawrence loved @E_FashionPolice during awards season when we were complimenting her every single week,” Rivers said.
The “Fashion Police” host didn’t stop there though.
“ Wait! It just dawned on me why Jennifer Lawrence fell on her way up to the stage to get her Oscar. She tripped over her own arrogance,” Rivers said.
Lawrence did not respond to River’s comments, but that didn’t stop Rivers from firing off one more comment on Dec. 26.
“My New Year’s resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down,” Rivers said.
While this could hardly be considered a feud because Lawrence never really responded back to any of the comments, it is pretty interesting. There are no signs as to whether Lawrence will respond or not.
