Twitter slams Jennifer Lawrence for throwing shade at Joanna Lumley during the BAFTAs
Jennifer Lawrence threw a sassy comment at Joanna Lumley during last night’s British Academy Film Awards and Twitter was not happy about it.
We all love Jennifer for her realness, but publicly disrespecting Brit queen Joanna Lumley? Now that’s just too far.
UK viewers were left annoyed after the American actress slipped in a shady comment about our beloved Joanna, who simply paid Jennifer a compliment before welcoming her on the stage.
Introducing the first award of the evening, Joanna said: “Right let’s start giving out some of those beautiful BAFTAs shall we?
“And we start with the award for Outstanding British Film and who better to kick the whole evening off than the hottest actress on the planet.
“Soon to be seen in Red Sparrow, it’s the ravishing Jennifer Lawrence.”
Walking on stage to receive her trophy, Jennifer then remarked bluntly: “Hi, that was a bit much but thank you Joanna.”
Oh no she didn’t.
Twitter users had something to say about the rude comment, and quickly took to the social media platform to criticise The Hunger Games star.
How rude was Jennifer Lawrence to Joanna Lumley? #EEBAFTAs
