Actress Jennifer Lawrence offered a tepid non-apology to “the internet” last Friday for an appearance on the Graham Norton Show earlier this month. In the appearance, Lawrence joked about defiling sacred Hawaiian stones during a film shoot, and then laughed about it while mocking Native Hawaiian beliefs (video after the jump).
This is going to be an unpopular opinion: I believe that consuming news obtained through the recent hack of Sony Entertainment is wrong, and I’m refusing to do it.
Late last month, hackers calling themselves “Guardians of Peace” hacked Sony Entertainment servers and threw their findings online, launching the likes of TMZ and Entertainment Weekly into a state of orgasmic glee with a virtual deluge of juicy gossip. Leaked emails between major Sony executives contain all sorts of salacious details regarding a process both mysterious and seemingly relevant to the everyday American: what goes into the business side of movie-making, and who are the shadowy backroom figures that make these decisions?
Thanks to the hack of Sony Entertainment, we now know that these people are, for the most part, raging superficial assholes.
