Jennifer Lawrence Rape Scream Causes Upset

Jennifer Lawrence Rape Scream Causes Upset

The only trouble with being the world’s most desired BFF is that there is always someone who cannot wait to pull you down, in this case Jennifer Lawrence and her “rape scream” at Cannes has caused upset with some female journos. The same reporters who have been gushing over the Hunger Games star are now ready to vilify her for an “off the cuff” remark made at the same party where she met Justin Bieber.

Earlier in the week it was reported, with much fanfare, that the 23 year-old award-winning actress got very excited at the prospect of meeting two different folks at the Hotel Du Cap Vanity Fair party at Cannes. The first was Alfonso Cuaron and it was this meeting that caused all the problems for Lawrence.

It was initially reported that Jennifer let out a “shriek ” of delight when she found out that the Gravity director was at the party and had expressed a desire to meet the American Hustle star.

At the same event, Lawrence had stated she wanted to meet “last minute guest” Justin Bieber who crashed the party with the aid of Vanity Fair’s Elizabeth Saltzman and he was escorted around the celebrity party goers by IAC chairman Barry Diller. Jennifer also declared that she did not want any pictures taken of the momentous occasion (i.e. meeting Bieber) as Lawrence wanted it to be a meeting between “real” people and not a publicity opportunity.

Now that a week has passed since the original story came out, it is now being reported that the “shriek” was in fact, a “rape scream” and Jennifer Lawrence with her joke about it has caused some upset. Although, apparently, not enough for the incident to be mentioned in earlier reports.

Allegedly once Lawrence spotted Cuaron in the crowd she shouted “Ahhhh” a couple of times. Once she got closer to the director she explained that she was so excited that she “broke out” her “rape” scream for him. To prove it, she shouted “ahhhh” again.

Just the sort of spur of the moment and unthinking pattern of orating that has made Lawrence the darling of the media set and queen of YouTube. This time, however, several of the female reporters at the event took umbrage at what they see as an unfeeling and tasteless downplaying of rape.

These are the same reporters who, shortly before, were gushing all over Lawrence’s wanting to meet Justin Bieber and that she thought he was cute. It has been pointed out that Jennifer has made social gaffes before. This is one of reasons that Lawrence is so popular with her fans.

The Oscar winning star does not automatically censor herself. She says pretty much just what she is thinking. It is not always politically correct nor is it in the best taste. Armpit vaginas and bowel movements rarely are.

It seems, however, that in the same week that Miley Cyrus made a tasteless rape joke at a trendy gay London club, hers was about slipping a date rape drug in drinks, caused little in the way of negative publicity. Since this was obviously the case, some celeb sites have decided to see what the world thinks of Lawrence making a rape joke.

Jennifer Lawrence making a “rape scream” joke and causing a bit of upset seems to be one of the more pointless stories of the week. It appears that female reporters have been waiting for a chance to take Jennifer down a peg or two. Perhaps it was getting too easy to keep pointing out Miley Cyrus’ social misbehaviour.

    So why are we hearing about Jennifer Lawrences’s non-issue, and not the names of these female reporters who feel it is their job to determine how the world feels about some celebrities.

    The only thing wrong here is no one did a rape scream and when Justin Beiber showed up.

    People need to calm the f down. She wasn’t trivializing the act of rape. She just gave an equivocal-in-volume scream.

    @Kate-Your hypocrisy and pettiness is absurd. It was a spur of the moment remark that wasn’t even offensive and the idea that you haven’t done that yourself is laughable. I despise people that try to impose unrealistic standards on others with their crude holier-than-thou attitudes. A person being hypersensitive does not dictate what is acceptable and being human is not something that should be criticized. The church of the always offended and the eternally self-righteous.

    Maybe one of the journalists was a rape victim? It would be understandable if she got upset in those circumstances. That’s why you don’t say stuff like that in a crowded room. Jen is an adult, not a 14 year old girl. It’s not hard to engage your brain and show some decorum whilst out in public.

    With all of the real problems in the world, why are we talking about an off-the-cuff remark made by a 23 year old? This is a non-story and any journalist making a deal about it obviously doesn’t have the depth to find a real story.

    Jennifer is an articulate, thoughtful, funny, intelligent, beautiful young woman, who has the same reactions as anyone with such a broad spectrum of emotions that any great actress
    should have. The narrow minded “journalists” who made this a big deal should take note of how authentic and real this woman and lady is.

    This article seems one of the more pointless stories of the week. Running dry on things worth writing about?

    Go back to Donald Sterling story. His comments spread hate. Jennifer is a young girl and not supposed to be spokesman for politically correct.

    Must a been a slow day for gossip-mongers…

    Why even breath life into this non-story? What made it more ridiculous is that it was just a private, spur of the moment remark that someone allegedly “overheard” which no responsible editor should have printed. Nor was it even a joke making light of the subject, just an off the cuff remark reacting to how she had intemperately scream out loud. It was incredibly petty and self-righteous for people to try to bash her. You would think she was at a formal interview downplaying the issue. (BTW, one of the most convincing rape scenes I ever saw was Jennifer in The Poker House when she was 16. Great performance in a little seen film).

    Incidentally it wasn’t “several female” reporters at the event. Rather it was reported by one who didn’t even think it was a big deal and was just an incidental part of a satirical article in Vulture. Then a few bloggers not at the event caught wind of it a few days later and tried to make an issue of it because her name generates traffic and they are a mean-spirited bunch. Their readers didn’t think it was a big deal either.

    It’s just a joke!? Everyone says comments like that. It’s all in jest.
