Last week, Jennifer Lawrence stopped by The Graham Norton show with Chris Pratt to promote their upcoming film Passengers. 

While downing a glass of wine, Lawrence launched into a story about how she almost killed one of the sound guys on the set of The Hunger Games when she used some sacred Hawaiian rocks to scratch her butt. While the story was supposed to be funny, many people found her actions and the way she told the story very offensive and ignorant.

After days of backlash from critics and fans, Lawrence took to Facebook Friday (Dec. 9, 2016) to apologize for her story, insisting she never meant to offend anyone. “I meant absolutely no disrespect to the Hawaiian people,” she wrote. “I really thought that I was being self-deprecating about the fact that I was “the curse”, but I understand the way it was perceived was not funny and I apologize if I offended anyone
