The 25-year-old actress, who won the Best Actress (Comedy or Musical) Golden Globe, has been accused of being rude to a reporter, who asked a question about her big win at the event.
The controversy began when a journalist kept his eyes on his phone while asking Jennifer a question during the press conference. The reporter had not even finished his question, but the actress suddenly interrupted, "You can't live your whole life behind your phone, bro."

The reporter then apologised and continued, but Jennifer 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 thay all laughed, but 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 Jennifer had done and had expressed it clearly.
