VIDEO: Jennifer Lawrence comes under fire for treatment of foreign reporter
It can be tough to report on an event held in your second language at the best of times.
So it can't help when the people you're interviewing make things tougher from you.
One journalist covering the Golden Globes referred to his phone to ensure he didn't make any mistakes in his question to Jennifer Lawrence, only to get an unexpected backlash from the star.
There was some awkward laughter from some of the audience, but the reaction on Twitter was critical of the Oscar winner, who added a Golden Globe for her performance in Joy.
I love Jennifer Lawrence but her stock fell with that mean-spirited treatment of a foreign journo. She's smelling herself. #GoldenGlobes

Even IF Jennifer Lawrence was just telling the reporter not to be on his phone, she was still being really fucking rude.
