Jennifer Lawrence told a story recently about how she scratched her itchy butt on rocks in Hawaii, but she unfortunately offended some of the people there when she joked that she was “the curse.”
The 26-year-old actress accidentally knocked a rock loose while taking care of her itch and almost killed a crew member on The Hunger Games. When natives blamed it on “the curse,” she joked that the curse was herself.
Jennifer took to Facebook to apologize to anyone she offended.
“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 apologize if I offended anyone,” Jen said in her statement.
