Jennifer Lawrence's Vogue cover was scorned on Twitter by a Breitbart editor as an attack on conservatives and the nation's current immigration debate.

Entertainment Weekly said Breitbart finance and economic editor John Carney took offense after Vogue posted a shot of its new cover with the Academy Award-winning actress in a long, red dress with the Statue of Liberty in the background.

While there was no mention of politics on the cover, Carney suggested in a tweet that he saw a subtle attack.

Entertainment Weekly said Carney explained in a follow-up Twitter post, which has since been deleted, that he believed the cover was "clearly an allusion to our current immigration debate, taking the #poemlaw side."

The #poemlaw hashtag refers to a White House briefing debate between President Donald Trump senior advisor Stephen Miller and CNN's Jim Acosta about immigration and the symbolism of the Statue of Liberty, Entertainment Weekly noted.

Some scoffed at the notion that the Vogue cover was quietly political or an attack on conservatives.

The Daily Beast said Vogue's cover is usually "labored and obsessed" over for months before shooting, and the September cover was shot in June, according to Zara Rahim, Vogue's director of communications.

Carney tweeted that the furor over his comment proves he had a point.
