Are the Twitteratti turning on Jennifer Lawrence? The actress is doing her best to bear the crown of America’s Sweetheart, but it may have slipped when she scolded a reporter for using his phone while asking about her Golden Globes win.
Fans went on Twitter to express their feelings about the incident.
“Sooo guttered with how Jennifer Lawrence went on with the foreign reporter at the Golden Globes, proper put me off her,” one user tweeted.
“It it takes being rude to a reporter for people to finally start hating Jennifer Lawrence, I’m all for it tbh,” said another.
“You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro,” said Lawrence to the reporter in question. “You can’t do that. You’ve got to live in the now.”
Some witnesses to the incident said the reporter wasn’t a native English speaker and was using his phone to translate the questions. However, some Twitter users who were present at the Q&A refuted the criticism. Chris Trondsen, a host on Pacific Rim Video, wrote, “He was taking pictures & video of Jennifer Lawrence while asking his questions & I even found it distracting.”
Whether the reporter was on his phone because he needed translation of his questions or whether he was actually being distracting isn’t clear in the video, but in any case, people are torn about whether to think Lawrence was rude or in the right to tell him off.

Jennifer Lawrence was arrogant. What if English wasn't that reporter's 1st language? What if he needed to translate or look at notes?

Jennifer Lawrence showed a part that's covered by all the glamour, she was rude and classless when speaking to the reporter.

If you think Jennifer Lawrence is 'cool' and a 'hero' for calling out that reporter, you need to do more research.
