Jennifer Lawrence’s new cover photo for Vogue has drawn the ire of right-wing news and opinion site Breitbart News.
The photo in question pictures the “Hunger Games” star posing in front of the Statue of Liberty in a long, red dress. Breitbart‘s John Carney argues, however, the image is an attack on the American right-wing.
“We’re going to have to create a full #MAGA shadow cultural industry because the Opposition Media can’t even do fashion without attacking us,” Carney tweeted a screen-grab of the Vogue cover. In a now separate and now deleted tweet, Carney argued the image is “clearly an allusion to our current immigration debate, taking the #poemlaw side.”
His hashtag referenced last week’s heated debate about immigration and the symbolism of the Statue of Liberty. Vogue‘s director of communications, Zara Rahim, countered Carney by informing him the photo was taken in June.
Carney’s comments drew the ire of others on social media as well, statements which he suggested only add “proof” to his argument.
