J Law Speaks Out Against 'Fashion Police'

It's safe to say that Jennifer Lawrence is not a fan of E's hit show Fashion Police.
During a Yahoo Q&A session Thursday, Lawrence called out the show -- which features hosts Kelly Osbourne, Joan Rivers, George Kotsiopoulos and Giuliana Rancic highlighting the best and worst in celeb style each week -- for promoting "wrong values."
"There are shows like Fashion Police that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it's okay to point at people and call them ugly or fat," Lawrence said. "They call it 'fun' and they say 'welcome to the real world' -- and that shouldn't be the real world. It's going to continue being the real world if we keep it that way. We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat."
In past interviews, Lawrence has lamented the fact that she's considered "fat" by Hollywood standards.
"There are unrealistic expectations for women, it's disappointing that the media keeps it alive and fuels that fire. It's something that really bothers me -- because I love to eat," she said during the Q&A.
Lawrence isn't the first celeb to hit back at the E! show. Lady Gaga criticized the show in January in an open letter to Kelly Osbourne.
"I have empathy for you Kelly, but I feel it culturally important to note that you have chosen a less compassionate path. Your work on E! with the Fashion Police is rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people's beauty against one another," she wrote. "'Appearance' is the most used reason for bullying in the world. Your show breeds negativity, and over the years has even become comedic in nature. It glorifies you and Joan Rivers pointing in the camera, laughing, and making jokes about artists and celebrities as if we are zoo animals."
Joan Rivers responded to Lawrence's comments on November 12, 2013 via her Twitter.
"It's funny how Jennifer Lawrence loved @E_FashionPolice during Awards Season when we were complimenting her every single week," she tweeted. "But now that she has a movie to promote, suddenly we're picking on all those poor, helpless actors. It just dawned on me why Jennifer Lawrence fell on the way up to the stage to get her Oscar. She tripped over her own arrogance."
