Jennifer Lawrence thinks fat jibes should be illegal

Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Lawrence thinks it should be illegal to call famous people fat. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star, who previously vowed to never go on a strict diet for a film role, believes scrutinizing celebrities for their weight has a negative effect on young females across the world. The 23-year-old Oscar-winning actress told Barbara Walters for her annual 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013 special: ''Why is humiliating people funny? I get it, I do it too. We all do it.'' But she added: ''I think the media needs to take responsibility for the effect it has on our younger generation on these girls that are watching these television shows and picking up how to talk and how to be cool. So all of the sudden being funny is making fun of the girl that's wearing an ugly dress. And the word fat! I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV. If we're regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words because of the effect it has on our younger generation, why aren't we regulating things like calling somebody fat?'' Jennifer recently claimed she is considered to be among the larger actresses her age in Hollywood. She said: ''In Hollywood, I'm obese. I'm considered a fat actress.''

    She’s right. People aren’t allowed to use the “n” word, or the “f” word, so why are they allowed to call people fat? Not to mention, that they call people fat who aren’t even close to fat. Jennifer has a great figure, imo she’s perfect.
