Actress Jennifer Lawrence appeared to claim in an interview this week that the deadly hurricanes slashing through parts of the United States are nature’s wrathful response to the election of Donald Trump.
Appearing on British network Channel 4 to discuss her new horror film, mother!, Lawrence was asked about the sort of “end-of-days feeling” in America.
“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognize it,” the actress said. “It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”
When the reporter mentioned that Americans did vote, Lawrence replied saying “it was really startling” when Trump was elected.
