Anne Hathaway Comes To Jennifer Lawrence's Defense About That Phone Scolding Incident

With some good hashtag use too.

Posted on

By now you probably know about Jennifer Lawrence "scolding" a reporter in the Golden Globes press room after she won her award. And people were mad at Jennifer. Like, real mad.

Now, Anne Hathaway has come to her defense with this Facebook post addressing the internet:

In case you can't see the image, it says:

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.
Sincerely,
A J-Law fan
