PETA targets ‘Hunger Games’ star Jennifer Lawrence for squirrel-skinning
PETA just can’t take a joke.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is targeting “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence for her squirrel-skinning scene in “Winter’s Bone,” and the hunting scenes in her latest film.
For her Oscar-nominated role in 2010′s “Winter’s Bone,” Lawrence’s character is seen graphically skinning a squirrel in order to feed her poverty-stricken family.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Lawrence said of the scene, “I should say it wasn’t real, for PETA—but screw PETA.”
