The 'Joy' actress got some criticisms from Twitter users after she scolded a foreign reporter who looked at his phone while asking her a question at the Golden Globes.
Jennifer Lawrence, who won Best Actress at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, got some criticisms from fans over her behavior at a backstage interview after she received the award. The "Joy" actress was accused of being rude to a reporter who asked a question about her big win at the event.
The drama began when a journalist kept his eyes on his phone while asking Lawrence a question during the press conference. The reporter had not even finished his question, but Lawrence suddenly interrupted, "You can't live your whole life behind your phone, bro." The reporter then apologized and continued, but Lawrence interrupted again, "We're at the Golden Globes. If you put your phone down you'd know that."
Some considered it as a joke and it indeed entertained the participants of the conference as you can hear laughter from the room. However, some people were not happy about it. Several viewers suggested that the reporter was a foreigner and English wasn't his first language. They pointed out that the reporter might have been looking at his phone to make sure that his sentences were correct.
Some Twitter users were disappointed with what Lawrence had done and had expressed it clearly. "Jennifer Lawrence is going from fun, lovable gal to problematic, obnoxious hoe real quick she better sort it fast," someone wrote on Twitter. " 'you gotta get off your phone and live in the now' - Jennifer Lawrence solving the problems of everyone trying to learn new languages," another user tweeted.
In another interview, Lawrence revealed what his bff Amy Schumer whispered in her ear after her name was called to accept the trophy. "She said 'Shut up, just go,' " Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight. "The whole time before I was like, 'Do you have an idea of what you want to say in your head? Because they're gonna call your name, and your whole head's gonna go blank.' And she was like, 'Shut up, shut up, shut up.' Then they called my name and she was just being supportive: 'Just get up there, go.' "
Schumer and Lawrence were nominated in the same category. Though it's Lawrence who ended up winning the gong, the two admitted that there were no hard feelings between them. Schumer congratulated Lawrence for her victory by posting a photo on Instagram. "So happy for our friend," Schumer captioned the photo.
