Jennifer Lawrence did not go on a rant about how President Donald Trump will be “destroyed” by “our Lord Satan,” despite an absurd report from a fake news website. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can set the record straight.

According to the unreliable blog Neon Nettle, the actress was overheard bashing the president at The Hollywood Reporter’s 2017 Women in Entertainment event earlier this week. Lawrence supposedly began her diatribe by complaining about the White House putting up a nativity scene for Christmas. The site quotes the actress as asking a group of friends, “What’s with all this nativity, Jesus [expletive] in the White House all of a sudden? That’s not our Lord. Trump is not one of us. I’m looking forward to watching Satan destroy that guy.” It should be noted, a nativity scene has been on display in the White House since the 196os.

The outlet further contends that the actress then held up her drink and shouted, “I’d love to throw this martini in [Trump’s] face.” Lawrence actually did make a similar comment in a recent interview with Oprah for The Hollywood Reporter. When asked what she’d say to the president if they ever met, the actress responded, “I’ve got a pretty good speech. And it ends with a martini to the face.” However, she didn’t make the same declaration backstage at the Women in Entertainment panel. The remark was simply extrapolated by the site to make its phony story sound more legitimate.

Despite how ludicrous this all sounds, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to Lawrence, who exclusively assures us she never went on a tirade about “Satan destroying Trump.” All of the quotes attributed to the actress in the article were fabricated and a simple online search will yield that they weren’t really uttered at the Women in Entertainment event. And although the “martini” comment is based in some truth, it was taken out of context and reworded, and also wasn’t said at a gala.

Additionally, Neon Nettle, which is often listed as a fake news site, has a habit of purporting that an A-list celebrity worships the devil. Gossip Cop recently busted the site for falsely claiming that Miley Cyrus told young fans to “pray to Satan.” This latest article is more nonsense from the disreputable blog.
