Did Jennifer Lawrence Go Too Far Scolding Golden Globes 2016 Reporter?

Backstage drama. Jennifer Lawrence is getting some flak for scolding a reporter during the 2016 Golden Globes on Sunday, January 10.

The awkward exchange went down when a journalist kept his eyes on his phone while asking the Joy actress, 25, a question during a press conference. The unidentified man uttered just a couple of words before Lawrence interrupted.

“You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro,” Lawrence said. “You can’t do that. You’ve got to live in the now.”

The reporter replied: “Oh, sorry, sorry, sorry!”

Lawrence quipped back: “We’re at the Golden Globes. If you put your phone down you’d know that.”

The Silver Linings Playbook star received a couple of laughs for her snarky comment, but others weren’t as amused. Several viewers have suggested that English wasn’t the reporter’s first language, and that he might have been looking at his phone to get the correct wording for his question.

“How rude can Jennifer Lawrence be before we stop considering her some quirky perfect covergirl?” one tweeter wrote on Sunday night.

A second added: “Yet another example of Jennifer Lawrence trying to be down-to-earth and funny, and failing miserably.”

The reactions, for the most part, were extremely negative. One fan came to her defense, however, writing: “The hate Jennifer Lawrence gets is ridiculous.”
