Jennifer Lawrence Hates On Kim Davis And Her Bigot Supporters

Jennifer Lawrence isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind, especially if it’s speaking out against bigots like Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who made headlines earlier this year for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after marriage equality became law of the land across America.

In a recent interview with Vogue, the “Hunger Games” actress called Davis the “lady” who makes her “embarrassed to be from Kentucky.” Even the very sound of Davis’ name send shivers up the 25-year-old actress’ spine. Known for speaking without a filter, Lawrence told Vogue:

“Kim Davis? Don’t even say her name in this house. All those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they’re fighting the good fight. I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are.”

Lawrence, who was raised as a Republican, also spoke out against the party because she feels it doesn’t support “women’s basic rights” – or anyone else’s rights for that matter. She said, “It’s 2015 and gay people can get married and we think that we’ve come so far, so, yay! But have we? I don’t want to stay quiet about that stuff.”

Kim Davis isn’t the only conservative Lawrence has publicly expressed disdain for. She’s also extremely distraught that Donald Trump is running for president. In a previous interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lawrence said, “My view on the election is pretty cut-and-dried: If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world. And he’s also the best thing to happen to the Democrats ever.”

Like many people who have been loyal to the Republican party, Lawrence is shocked and saddened by what the GOP has become, and recognizes how much its values have changed. The Republican party we’re dealing with now has zero concern for human rights and minorities, and doesn’t think twice about using religion to justify bigotry and hate. Lawrence is basically loved by everyone, so hopefully her honesty will mean something to those who are still on the fence.
