Was Jennifer Lawrence too harsh? After winning a Golden Globe award, reporters asked the “Hunger Games” star about her win. The actress scolded one reporter who was apparently looking at his phone to read the question.
According to Yahoo, fans didn’t like JLaw’s attitude towards the foreign reporter. The actress is now facing critique for her statements. Some claimed that Lawrence embarrassed the reporter who was a non-English native.

Jennifer Lawrence is the celebrity version of that girl in class who always acts up for attention and calls herself "quirky and random"

Do you agree with their thoughts? Here’s a recap of what happened:
When Jennifer Lawrence saw that the reporter was holding out his phone, the actress wagged a finger and said:
“You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro. You can’t do that. You’ve got to live in the now.”
The reporter quickly apologized and thought of it as a joke. He went on with his question and asked her, “How do you see yourself for the Oscar night, and how…”
JLaw responded to him and said,
“We’re at the Golden Globes. If you put your phone down, you’d know that.”

Meanwhile, The Wrap noted that some Twitter users sided with Jennifer Lawrence. One user claimed that the foreign reporter distracted the actress.
He was taking pictures & video of Jennifer Lawrence while asking his questions & I even found it distracting.

Twitter users were quick to point out that the reporter was only doing his job.

According to Mail Online, the reporter indeed felt “scolded.” He shared a selfie on his Instagram account with a caption that translates to: “After being scolded by #JenniferLawrence in the #GoldenGlobes.”
Although JLaw is known for her “jovial” sense of humour, she might have crossed the line this time, Mail Online mentioned.
One user wrote: “Jennifer Lawrence tries to be sassy & sarcastic but she always forgets that tiny line where you can become rude and disrespectful”
