Jennifer Lawrence Speaks out Against Donald Trump

During a Friday evening appearance on the Graham Norton Show, Jennifer Lawrence delivered a terse message to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. — "Hey, Trump, f*** you!"

Much to the audience's delight, she also flipped Trump the bird.

She said she had hoped to deliver the message in person.

The "Hunger Games" star told the British talk show host and fellow guests James McAvoy, Jack Whitehall, and Johnny Depp — who recently played Trump in a Funny Or Die satirical biopic — that she had spotted Trump at a concert, and wanted to give him the message in person.

“I was at a concert where I heard he was attending, so I had my full security team, like I was like, ‘Find Donald Trump,’” Lawrence said. “I was adamant on finding him and making a video of me going, ‘Hey, Trump, fuck you!’”

"I was adamant," she added, but said the run-in ultimately didn't pan out. "He knew I was looking for him," she told Norton.

The star hasn't kept her distaste for Trump a secret.

“If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly in October 2015.

The actress added that Trump's straight talking persona was especially disconcerting to her.

“I was watching him on the campaign trail and one guy said, ‘I love Donald Trump because he’s saying everything I’m thinking and I just can’t say it because of the PC factor.’" she added. "And I’m thinking, ‘You are absolutely right. That’s who I want representing my country, somebody politically incorrect. That will just be perfect,’”

Women who have spoken up against Trump experienced major backlash.

After former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields alleged that Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski forcefully moved her out of the way while she was trying to ask the candidate a question after a March press conference, Fields suffered a barrage of abuse from Trump supporters on social media.

Conservative news outlet the Blaze also obtained audio of an individual allegedly making death threats to Fields.

While a few choice Trump supporters have slammed Lawrence on social media, whether the actress will endure the massive online attacks reported by Fields and others remains to be seen.
