Everyone鈥檚 wannabe celeb pal, J. Law, often does things that are super relatable. Like nearly asking out guys who are already taken, and gushing over her friends, because aren鈥檛 besties, well, the best people EVER?!

Well, making mistakes is also pretty relatable, and so too is admitting when you鈥檙e wrong: Which is exactly what Jen鈥檚 doing after she shared an inappropriate story about her recent time spent in Hawaii.

While there, Jen was doing scenes that required her to wear a wetsuit, and if you鈥檝e ever been surfing or scuba diving, you know that those things can get itchy. So naturally, she had to scratch. Unfortunately for Jen, the only available scratching posts were rocks. But not just any rocks鈥 sacred ones. So, she did something against better judgement, and used the rocks to scratch her rear 鈥 and ended up dislodging one, nearly smooshing the sound guy in the process.

If Jen had just apologized and admitted she鈥檇 done something super disrespectful, it likely wouldn鈥檛 have caused so much backlash, but she went on Graham Norton last week to joke about the incident, which offended a lot of people. Luckily, Jen quickly realized how her words were coming across and took to Facebook to apologize:

I meant absolutely no disrespect to the Hawaiian people. I really thought that I was being self deprecating about the fact that I was 鈥渢he curse鈥, but I understand the way it was perceived was not funny and I apologize if I offended anyone.

Some people were still upset, explaining to those who didn鈥檛 quite get what the big deal was that those 鈥渨ho are offended by this are those who care deeply for traditions, culture, ancestors, etc.鈥 The same commenter also said that for her, this went beyond jokes. 鈥淲hen it comes to something we truly care about, obviously it鈥檚 gonna be a big deal.鈥

Others understood that the story was intended to be more of a 鈥淚 screwed up guys, and I felt really bad,鈥 and that laughing about it is the only way she knew how to talk about it. 鈥淎 lot of my Hawaiian friends thought it was funny. We know how clumsy and funny Jen can be,鈥 one user wrote, adding, 鈥淓ven if it was humorous and in no way offensive to me I鈥檓 happy she鈥檚 apologized for those who did feel offended.鈥

Both sides are totally understandable, but like the Facebook user above, we鈥檙e glad to hear that Jen apologized. She has shown us time and time again that she鈥檚 only human, and that she has the good grace to say she鈥檚 sorry when she screws up. Good on you, Jen.

What do you think about Jen鈥檚 story and her way of handling it? Tell us @BritandCo!
