The Silver Linings Playbook actress, Jennifer Lawrence, has had enough. She has struck back at alleged sexual predator, Harvey Weinstein. In T-Swift’s immortal words, J-Law would very much like to be excluded from Harvey’s narrative.
J-Law has continually been dragged through bad press concerning the disgraced mogul. Most recently, Harvey’s legal team made a sad blunder and used one of Jennifer’s old quotes about his character.
They did this seemingly to defend his character in court. Quick rewind for those of you not in the know: Harvey was accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women but has denied these claims.
J-Law decided she’d had enough. She spoke on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, saying:
“He is just that horrible ass boil that does not go away. You pop the ass boil. He’s just the worst. When is it gonna end?”
Many people believe she’s still been kind, using an ‘ass boil’ as reference. She could have been even more savage and no one would have batted a single eyelash.
Fans believe the 27-year-old can’t really be blamed; Harvey’s legal team did use her old comments out of context, and they never bothered to ask for permission. Jennifer released a stern statement earlier, saying that Harvey and his company are best at taking things “out of context” and using them “for their own benefit.”
She did add that while she was not personally abused by Harvey, she wants to stand behind all the women that were. She also classified his actions towards these women as “terrible abuse.”
Well, J-Law, don’t hold back on anyone’s, especially Harvey’s account! However, she might have gone too far when she said she wants to see the mogul dead, or behind bars.
“What he did is criminal and deplorable,” she said. “And when it came out and I heard about it, I wanted to kill him. The way that he destroyed so many women’s lives. I want to see him in jail.”
Death threats aside, J-Law’s Red Sparrow is going to end when the movie hits theaters this Friday. While we’re excited to see the new movie, we’ll miss Jennifer’s cutting remarks about Harvey!
