Jennifer Lawrence has been removed from all Hunger Games posters in Israel. You know which J-Law I’m talking about. She’s the star of the entire Hunger Games franchise as Katniss Everdeen. She’s the highest paid actress in Hollywood. She had to get absolutely fucking hammered in order to film a sex scene with Chris Pratt. There’s even a chance you might’ve seen her naked before as she was once the target of ‘The Fappening’ and had private nude photos of herself shared worldwide. Well, apparently looking at her face in Israel is offensive to the point that people rip down posters of her when her face is exposed.

The Guardian reports:

Posters for the final part of the dystopian action franchise in some parts of Israel have been redesigned so as to remove the Oscar-winning actor. Instead, Katniss Everdeen and her bow and arrow have been replaced with a mockingjay in a handful of cities across the country, including Bnei Brak and Jerusalem. “We discovered that public posters with the image of a female are often torn down in Jerusalem, while Bnei Brak does not allow posters with female images,” a representative of the film’s Israeli PR firm said to Ynet.
The city of Bnei Brak’s ruling on images of women is based on a fear that they “might incite the feelings of the city’s residents”, according to the Israeli website Haaretz. A marketing executive for the company hanging the posters in Israel said they have had “endless vandalisation” in the past, so chose not to take the risk.

Soooo ‘vandalism’. That’s your answer. If she’s on the poster people will rip them down.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 has just opened worldwide, which is a fucking travesty because the movie should have never existed in the first place. In fact, as someone who got tricked into reading all three ‘Hunger Games’ books I believe there’s zero fucking reason whatsoever that Mockingjay should’ve been a standalone book. It’s all a ploy to make more money. The entire plotline of Mockingjay is garbage, but it’s a garbage extension of the 2nd book. There was no definitive ending point of the 2nd book, they just realized they could make more money if they wrote ‘The End’ on a page and started printing a third book. Then when it came time to make a movie someone somewhere said ‘fuck it, we’ve got Jennifer Lawrence. Let’s drag this out for as long as possible.’ And that’s how a shitty book that shouldn’t have existed in the first place got broken out into two movies.

THE ONLY GOOD THING to come out of this entire dumpster fire of a movie are the photos of Jennifer Lawrence ripping shots of whisky on the red carpet (click here for all the pics):

Now this shitty ass movie is getting AN UNGODLY AMOUNT OF PRESS because someone somewhere leaked that they took Jennifer Lawrence’s face off of posters because someone somewhere might be offended. This is the fucking world that we live in. I guess I can thank my lucky stars and stripes that the movie’s at least been released now and I won’t have to hear about this shit any more beginning on Monday.

The End.
