"Shame on you, spoiled brat!"
Jennifer Lawrence is being branded as ‘rude and discourteous’ for her behaviour at Sunday night’s BAFTA awards.
The actress seemed to throw a little shade at host Joanna Lumley who introduced her for presenting on the night.
Joanna, 71, was presenting the show for the first time after taking over from long-term host Stephen Fry.
Kicking off the show, 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.”
Jennifer, 27, walked on stage and responded to Joanna’s compliment by saying “Hi. That was a bit much but thank you Joanna”.
Ouch. BAFTA viewers were quick to notice the remark, and took to Twitter to express their anger.

Wow seriously Jennifer Lawrence needs to lighten the F up. Joanna Lumley gave you a compliment calling you ravishing and you knocked her back like a right stuck up cow. Take the compliment. Jesus Christ! Ungrateful much! I'd love a compliment from Lumley #EEBAFTAs

I never been so angry as to actually tweet about a celebrity, but that comment to Joanna Lumley was hugely discourteous!!! Get some manners #JenniferLawrence and grow up. You came across as a spoilt brat! Joanna Lumley is thee most kindest lady in your industry. Shame on you!

Do you think Jennifer was just joking? Or was she rude?
