Gasp! Is it really possible that Jennifer Lawrence had been rude to a reporter at the 2016 Golden Globes?
Twitter seems to thinks so.
The 25-year-old actress may have won the Best Actress Award for "Joy" during the 2016 Golden Globes Sunday night, but it's hard to celebrate with the events following the awards ceremony.
Following the awards night, JLaw attended a press conference at the Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton Hotel where several reporters, including Latin American E! Editorial Manager Juan Pablo Fernández-Feo, questioned her. However, since Fernández-Feo English is a second language for the Latino reporter, it appears he needed the assistance of his phone in order to ask his questions correctly to Lawrence.
Apparently, this doesn't sit well with the Academy Award winner.
In a video that has gone viral since Sunday, Lawrence can be seen reprimanding Fernández-Feo for looking down at his phone while asking her questions.

As the Latino reporter asked the "Hunger Games" actress, she interrupted him saying, "You can't live your whole life behind your phone, bro. You can't do that, you've got to live in the now."
Fernández-Feo quickly apologized and tried asking his question again.
"How do you see yourself, for the Oscar night?" he asked.
Seemingly trying to lighten up the room, JLaw cut him again and even tried to correct him, saying, "We're at the Golden Globes," she sniped. "If you put your phone down, you'd know that." Some people at the conference thought that what she said was funny, but Twitter begs to disagree.
According to the Daily Mail, her comments resulted in a debate among social media users who asked whether she had crossed the line trying to be funny. Some are saying that the reporter had been nervous, which was why he called the Golden Globes the Oscars, while others say that Jennifer Lawrence just misunderstood Fernández-Feo's questioning.
According to Remezcla, however, what the Latino reporter was in fact trying to ask was what Lawrence thought her chances are now of winning the Oscars since she won a Golden Globe. The website adds that this is what "¿Como te ves para los oscars?" translates to online.

Some commenters on social media say JLaw had just been plain rude. In fact, some of the young actress' fans admiration for her have started waning since the incident. "I'm a fan of her, but that was kinda rude," said a fan, while another said, "I used to find Jennifer Lawrence quite funny and relatable but now she's quite rude and arrogant. Shame."
Meanwhile, others pointed out that Lawrence had already done this in the past. "People are just now realizing how rude & disrespectful Jennifer Lawrence is????" said one commenter.

Jennifer Lawrence is very young and I'm pretty sure when she's older she'll distinguish between "rude" and "English as a second language." — John Ross Bowie (@JohnRossBowie) January 11, 2016
While people had been quick to defend Fernández-Feo, the Latino reporter seems to think that there's no need for such reactions.
On his Facebook account, the E! reporter said JLaw's rude behavior could probably be due to her period. He later edited that post though and said he just caught her at a bad time.
What do you think? Was Jennifer Lawrence being rude to the reporter?
