Ruby Rose defends Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘slutty power lesbian’ comment
Ruby Rose has defended Jennifer Lawrence’s comment about her ‘slutty power lesbian’ style.
When asked to describe her personal style during a recent interview, Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence described herself as a “slutty power lesbian.”
“That is literally what I say to a stylist. I don’t know if that’s offensive…” she told Glamour.
Despite some praising the star’s comments, some members of the LGBT community have criticised the statement, claiming the comparison is offensive.
However, fellow actress Ruby Rose claims that Lawrence did not mean to upset anybody, and praised her for being a positive role model for all women, regardless of their sexuality.
“Jennifer Lawrence is an amazing actress and an amazing advocate for women and women’s empowerment and the wage gap in Hollywood and so many amazing things,” the genderfluid star told The Cut.
“I think that is an easy quote to misinterpret or to pick apart.
“But I know that she has an amazing sense of humour, and for her to say that, I know that would never come from a bad place,” the Orange Is The New Black actress added.
“She’s always spending so much of her time supporting other women and the LGBT community.
“There’s no way that she meant that with any kind of malice. If it was someone else, maybe I would think into it, but because it’s her, I just know what she meant.”
