Jennifer Lawrence apologises for ‘butt-scratching’ joke
Los Angeles, Dec 10 (IANS) Oscar winning-actress Jennifer Lawrence has apologised to the people of Hawaii after telling a story about cratching her “butt” on sacred rocks.
Lawrence recently revealed that she almost killed a crew member of “The Hunger Games” in Hawaii when she caused some “sacred” rocks to come loose after “butt-scratching” on them, but people were not impressed with her story.
She took to Facebook to apologise for her remark, reports mirror.co.uk.
“I meant absolutely no disrespect to the Hawaiian people. I really thought that I was being self-deprecating about the fact that I was ‘the curse,’ but I understand the way it was perceived was not funny and I apologise if I offended anyone,” Lawrence wrote.
The actress had earlier said of her experience: “Oh my God, they were so good for butt-itching. One rock that I was butt-scratching on ended up coming loose, and it was a giant boulder and it rolled down this giant mountain and almost killed our sound guy. His whole station got destroyed. It was this huge, dramatic deal.
“All the Hawaiians were like, ‘Oh my God, it’s the curse!’ And I was sitting in the corner like, ‘Haha! I’m your curse! I wedged it loose with my a**!'”
