At the Golden Globes, Jennifer Lawrence won an award and lost the Internet's heart when she responded a little sharply to a reporter on his phone at the press conference afterwards. Not a huge deal, but lots of people criticized her, saying English was not his first language and he was obviously reading from his device, not swiping on Tinder. Afterwards, Lawrence presumably went home and lived her incredible life not caring what the Internet thinks. But she still has other female celebs—who are used to being unnecessarily criticized all the time—to back her up. Anne Hathaway came to Lawrence's defense, posting a letter to the Internet on Friday:
Dear the Internet,
It's become pretty clear that the Jennifer Lawrence "scolding" was taken out of context and that she was dryly joking with a journalist who was indeed using his phone to take photos of her.
Let's not continue the sad but common practice of building people - especially women- up just to viciously tear them down when we perceive them to have misstepped. Jennifer is a beautiful, talented, wildly successful, popular, FOUR TIME OSCAR NOMINATED young woman. Please let us not punish her for these things.
A J-Law fan
