Sports Illustrated is all ♥: Posts bikini pics taken in hurricane-ravaged areas

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma wreaked untold destruction and human misery across a wide swath, from Texas to Florida to the Caribbean islands.

A Category-5 Irma demolished 90% of the buildings on Barbuda, an island east of Puerto Rico; 95% of buildings in parts of St. Martin; devastated popular tourist destinations in St. Barts. Hannah Jeter, a native of the Virgin Islands and a former Sports Illustrated cover model, cried out for help on Instagram:

“People in the Virgin Islands are running out of fuel, water and food. People are dying!!! People are lost!!!! We are an afterthought and are not getting the help that we need!!! . . . This is an emergency!!!!!”

The dead include 11 on St. Martin and St. Barts, four in the U.S. Virgin Islands and four in the British Virgin Islands. There was also one each in Barbuda, Anguilla, and Barbados. The toll is expected to rise as rescuers reach some of the hardest-hit areas. (Caribbean Buzz via AP)

Amidst the devastation and human misery, this is what Sports Illustrated did — posting pics of bikini-clad models taken in precisely the places that have been ravaged by the two hurricanes, because everything is about sex, sex, sex.

Yesterday, Sept. 12, Sports Illustrated posted to Instagram a pic of bikini-clad Brooklyn Net cheerleaders, taken on the Caribbean island of Barbados. The pic prompted an Instagram user to write this comment:

What the f is wrong with you people the island is destroyed stop posting this stupid shit now

Four days before the cheerleaders pic, Sports Illustrated posted to Instagram a pic of a topless, evil-looking “swimsuit” model, which prompts this vexing existential question:

How can one be a swimsuit model without wearing a swimsuit?

A Sports Illustrated (SI) reader called the series of shots “incredibly shameless and inappropriate given the devastation in Texas and the Caribbean.”

Page Six contacted a SI representative, who “declined to comment”.

Sports Illustrated‘s publisher is Brendan Ripp, the son of former Time Inc. CEO Joe Ripp; its editorial director is Chris Stone.

Hollyweird libtard Jennifer Lawrence: “Hurricanes Irma, Harvey are nature’s wrath for Trump victory”

Hypocrite Jennifer Lawrence: So concerned about “climate change” she ignores her own “human activity” and flies by private jet.

She’s got a movie, Mother!, coming out on September 15. Boycott!

From Fox News: Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence suggested the devastating hurricanes in Texas and approaching Florida were signs of “Mother Nature’s rage and wrath” at America for electing Donald Trump and not believing in man-made climate change.

Lawrence, who is promoting her new drama “Mother!,” appeared on British network Channel 4 on Wednesday, where she discussed topics ranging from the movie to the gender pay gap and Trump.

“It’s scary,” the actress responded to the interviewer’s assertion that there was “an end-of-days feeling” across the world and especially in the U.S.

“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognize it. It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”

“And you have voted very recently, as a country” the reporter noted – to which Lawrence replied that “it was really startling” Trump was elected. She then suggested the recent hurricanes devastating Texas and nearing Florida may have been prompted by Trump winning the presidency.

“You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage and wrath,” Lawrence said.

Lawrence later said the conversation topics of Trump and U.S. politics were “really polarizing and upsetting.”

She added: “You know, I’ve heard things and seen things on TV in my own country that devastate me and make me sick, and it’s just really confusing.”

After being asked whether she finds Trump confusing, the actress fired back, saying, “I don’t find him confusing. I think I know exactly what he is.”

Lawrence has never been shy about sharing her opinions on the President. In 2015, when Trump had just launched his presidential campaign, she said a victory by him would “be the end of the world,” during an Entertainment Weekly interview.
