The decade's most triggering comedy
Critics roundly mocked superstar actress Jennifer Lawrence after she admitted to having nightmares about popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson on a regular basis.
Lawrence said that she had been “trying to heal” after feuding with her own family over politics, and said that recurring nightmares about Tucker Carlson had even been a topic of discussion between the actress and her therapist. Her comments appeared in her recent Vogue cover story — wherein she also divulged for the first time the name and sex of the baby she delivered last February: a baby boy named Cy.
Critics quickly took to Twitter to mock the Academy Award winner over her comments.
“This is hilarious and sad at the same time. Jennifer Lawrence admits that she has NIGHTMARES about Tucker Carlson. These people are absolute lunatics,” Robby Starbuck said in a tweet sharing a screenshot of the article.

Daily Wire editor emeritus Ben Shapiro weighed in as well, saying, “Hey @TuckerCarlson, Jennifer Lawrence has been dreaming about you again.”

“Do we really have to choose between Jennifer Lawrence and Tucker Carlson? If so, I’m going 3rd party again,” Kimberly Ross asked.

In the same interview, the “Hunger Games” star also noted that she had been at odds with her more conservative family members since the 2016 election — a rift that had only deepened when the Supreme Court overturned landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade pursuant to a 6-3 decision in the more recent case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
“I just worked so hard in the last five years to forgive my dad and my family and try to understand: It’s different. The information they are getting is different. Their life is different,” she said. “I’ve tried to get over it and I really can’t. I can’t. I’m sorry I’m just unleashing, but I can’t f*** with people who aren’t political anymore. You live in the United States of America. You have to be political. It’s too dire. Politics are killing people.”
