J-Law Wrongfully Calls Out Reporter At The Golden Globes

Jennifer Lawrence might be the world’s highest paid actress , but that surely gives her no right to go around bashing people as she pleases.

Everything was working out brilliantly for Jennifer Lawrence at the Golden Globes this year as she won the award for Best Actress for her role in the movie Joy. However, in a press-conference following the awards, fans criticized J-Law as she was spotted being rather rude to a foreign journalist.

The actress who was being questioned by an international reporter, all of a sudden, lashed out at him when she saw him constantly looking down at his phone, reading out questions.

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

As the reporter went on asking her another question, Lawrence snapped back, “We’re at the Golden Globes. If you put your phone down, you’d know that.”

Internet users aren’t taking the actress’ words well and some have even gone on to call her culturally insensitive.

They don’t seem to be wrong at all, since many reporters, whose first language isn’t English, end up using their phone to read out questions during an interview. Lawrence probably overreacted to the situation.

However, this was not the first time she poked fun at someone for their phone usage during that night. While Lawrence and Amy Schumer were on stage, the duo told someone using their phone in the front row to “please turn your phone off.” Lawrence laughed and added: “Can you please stop taking pictures?”

It seems the actress needs to understand that while smartphone addiction is certainly not acceptable, she cannot call out journalists or other people who need cellular devices to do their jobs.
