Jennifer Lawrence Is Trying to Identify Charlottesville Protestors on Facebook

Jennifer Lawrence is the kind of celebrity I just love—she’s funny and super talented, and she consistently fights for a better world. This week has been no different.

On Monday, J. Law publicly denounced the actions of white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend. She wrote on Facebook, "These are the faces of hate. Look closely and post anyone you find. You can’t hide with the internet you pathetic cowards!"

As always happens when you mix celebrities and social media, haters are going to hate—or, in this case, racists are going to be racists. According to Refinery29, Jennifer's post received comments like, “Stay out of politics and make me my new hunger games movie!!!" and "You live in a country with free speech, not what ever appeals to your fragile sense of snowflake-ism.” Disgusting.

Telling someone to stay out of politics in 2017 is basically telling them to give up their rights. Celebrities like J. Law often use their platforms to fight injustice, and rightfully so. It gives people hope in a world full of hatred, bigotry and gaslighting. We all should be standing up and fighting for what’s right—not staying quiet and ignoring what's happening in the world around us.
