Jennifer Lawrence Thinks It Should Be Illegal to Call Somebody Fat on TV

In her interview for the BARBARA WALTERS "Most Fascinating People" special, JENNIFER LAWRENCE says it should be ILLEGAL to call somebody "fat" on TV.

  

She says, "I think the media needs to take responsibility for the effect it has on our younger generation on these girls that are watching these television shows and picking up how to talk and how to be cool.

  

"I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV.  If we're regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words because of the effect it has on our younger generation, why aren't we regulating things like calling somebody fat?"

  

The show airs tonight on ABC.

  

(By the way . . . "Duck Dynasty's" PHIL ROBERTSON did not join the rest of the family for their interview, because he was HUNTING.  You can read more about that here.)
