Just days after suggesting Hollywood elites should stay out of the national debate on school safety, A-list actress Jennifer Lawrence violated her own rule; saying “guns” are the problem behind the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school.
Lawrence was promoting her upcoming action movie ‘Red Sparrow’ when she was pressed on Hollywood’s double-standard; with liberal celebrities routinely slamming the nation’s gun laws while promoting hyper-violent films commonly featuring firearms.
“I think that, you know, we’re the entertainment industry. At some point, there has to be a separation between politics and the entertainment industry or we’re going to suffer,” she said. “This is, it’s an art. And it’s an art to entertain and, as an industry, we will suffer and people need to take that responsibility on themselves.”
“I think the problems is guns not the entertainment industry,” added the Hunger Games star.
Lawrence’s comments are in stark contrast to statements she made just this week, telling an interviewer that actors should largely avoid hot-button issues.
“I’ve always thought that it was a good idea to stay out of politics,” she said.
