Jennifer Lawrence may be Hollywood’s sweetheart but she’s not winning after brownie points for her appearance at the 2016 Golden Globes. Following her win for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy Sunday, Lawrence took the stage in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s press room. There, the “Joy” actress called out a reporter for being on his phone while questioning her, an action which some are calling rude.
In the footage an apparently foreign reporter, according to the Guardian, can be heard asking Lawrence, 25, a question. Before the journalist can finish, Lawrence interrupts, saying, “You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro,” and shaking her finger. “You can’t do that. You’ve just got to live in the now.”
The reporter goes on to apologize and ask Lawrence about her potential 2016 Oscar nomination, a question which Lawrence shoots down.
“We’re at the Golden Globes,” she says. “If you put your phone down you would know that.”
Watch their exchange below:
While it sounds as if the reporter in question laughs off Lawrence’s comments, not everyone is laughing. Since the release of Lawrence’s press room appearance , Golden Globes viewers have taken to social media to call out the award-winning actress for her behavior. Check out some fan reactions below:
I like Jennifer Lawrence and everything but what she said to the reporter was so rude and not funny at all

Jennifer Lawrence is very young and I'm pretty sure when she's older she'll distinguish between "rude" and "English as a second language."

It's like Jennifer Lawrence tries to be funny but it comes off as rude sometimes. She didn't have to out the reporter like that.

Jennifer Lawrence, the "goofy" girl humiliated a foreign journalist. Being mean is not being funny. Good thing the world is seeing that now.

In response to the negative tweets, some of Lawrence's fans have started defending the actress online:
Well i don't think Jennifer Lawrence was rude to the reporter, As a reporter you should be professional, write on a piece of paper not phone

Those who are calling #JenniferLawrence rude clearly do not know her. She is very sarcastic and has a crude sense of humor deal with it
