Hunger Games Inspired Tea

One of our readers discovered a website called adagio that sells many different types of tea. Seems a Hunger Games fan is in their midst, as there are quite a few tea blends inspired by characters from the story!

We searched through the site and found teas named after KatnissPeetaCinnaEffie,Finnick, and Rue. Click on each name to read the description for each of the teas – they reflect the characters quite well!

Isabelle Fuhrman Comments on Racist Tweets From Fans

You’ve likely heard the disgusting news about some Hunger Games “fans” complaining on Twitter about Amandla Stenberg playing Rue in the movie because of the fact that she’s African American (same racist complaints were also made about Lenny Kravitz and Dayo Okeniyi). We don’t even think it’s necessary to take a side on this because the right and wrong sides of the argument are so very clear. E! Online talked with Isabelle Fuhrman last night about the entire controversy, and we couldn’t agree with her thoughts more:

“I think Amandla was fantastic in it, and she’s so beautiful,” Isabelle Fuhrman, who plays Clove in the movie, exclusively told me last night at the Valentino store opening in Beverly Hills. “She’s exactly how I imagined her to be. “I think it’s just terrible,” she continued. “She’s such an amazing actress and she’s so sweet. I guess people read things differently and imagine things different, but I think she was the perfect choice for Rue.”

E! Online also shared this statement Amandla released this morning:

“As a fan of the books, I feel fortunate to be part of The Hunger Games family,” Amandla, 13, said in a statement released earlier today. “It was an amazing experience; I am proud of the film and my performance. I want to thank all of my fans and the entire Hunger Games community for their support and loyalty.”
