She is a victim.
“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this,” Lawrence told Vanity Fair in her follow-up interview. “It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world. ”
What happened to her is horrible.
“It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.”
“Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for.”
Correct, up to that point.
This is where I disagree with her…
“I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”
It was porn or you? Is that the message you want to send to your young fans? If you care about the guy and he cares about you, send him naked photos or he will have to go to porn.
Hate to break this to JLaw, that guy is looking at porn with or without those photos, don’t be naive.
This is not her fault at all, but she is not free from responsibility.
She is famous, she took these photos and she put them under a password that got hacked.
I look at it like this, if I put my wallet on my car’s seat and it gets taken, I am a victim but I am also responsible for being stupid.
When your kid doesn’t lock up his bike and it gets stolen, he is a victim but you are still mad at him for being irresponsible.
This is different, she had it password protected and they guessed it because of her security question. It happens and it was avoidable.
Yes… Jennifer Lawrence is a victim, but now she has a responsibility to make sure it doesn’t happen to other young women. What she is doing isn’t helping that, it is ensuring it happens again.
I can’t understand why people are calling her message “powerful” and “inspiring”, it’s foolish.
Nothing you send, especially digitally, is private.
How many times do we have to learn this?
The correct response is this, “The people who did this to me are animals but I shouldn’t have taken those photos. You never know when you are going to be violated, but I wish I never would have taken those pictures because you never know what is going happen.”
