Okay, Screw Jennifer Lawrence

Uh, so I don't usually write angry cards (unless they're about Koreaboo) but JLaw just pissed me off.
Basically, she's being interviewed at the Golden Globes and a reporter is asking her a question. He reads the question from his phone and she makes a fool out of him for it?
I'm publishing this to Learn Korean cause I feel like you guys will get this reporter's struggle.

Watch the clip below first:

Okay Jennifer, you like to be funny in your interviews.

We get it.

But, hello? This man is clearly a non-native English speaker, trying to read a question to you SO HE DOESN'T SCREW UP HIS ONE CHANCE TO TALK TO YOU.
You tell him to put the phone down, and now without his notes and with his nerves gone through the roof, you make fun of him for saying Oscars instead of Golden Globes?

Cut the guy some slack, and cut the 'funny' crap - cause now you just turn out sounding mean.

As someone who has studied multiple languages (and still isn't fluent in any of them) this really rubbed me the wrong way.

I'm sure interviews are annoying and you get a lot of bad reporters, but chhhiiiiilllllll.

Am I just over-reacting or what?

I like Jennifer Lawrence, but I hate it when people who natively speak English act like its the easiest thing ever or that everyone needs to speak it perfectly! As a celebrity, she needs to be a role model and an ambassador and have more tolerance toward others!
OMG. I'm in utter DISBELIEF right now. I don't care how famous or popular you are, but that is NOT how you're supposed to talk to another person. You could clearly see that HE WAS STRUGGLING. And for me personally, I have parents that can't speak fluent English because they came to the U.S from Vietnam and most of the time they speak the exact same way as that reporter did. So this DEFINIETLY is not okay with me because that could have been one of my parents and I would not want that much DISRESPECT coming from someone just because you want to be "funny". I don't care if it was just a joke. There's a line that has to be made with jokes and plain rudeness. ( ̄︿ ̄) Sorry Jennifer Lawrence, but in my eyes this was just plain rude and you lost A LOT of my respect for you. ( ̄ヘ ̄) @kpopandkimchi Thanks for making this card. I seriously appreciate it. People these days need to realize that they are not that much different from us regular folks and that we NEED put them on a high enough pedestal that we aren't able to reach them. Because we aren't different. We are human.
I don't really think this had anything to do with his English. I think she wanted him to be more confident when asking his questions. she just total went about that like an asshole tho
@MichelleIbarra basically this reporter starts to ask her a question but is clearly reading it off of his phone screen - JLaw stops him and says he shouldnt use his phone...then he stutters and stumbles trying to ask her his question and he says 'the oscars' in stead of the golden globes and she cuts him off AGAIN and is like 'if you put your phone down you'd know where we are right now' even though based on his accent he's CLEARLY not a native english speaker and was using his phone as notes :/
@shannonl5 currently his company is reviewing him and he'll honestly probably lose his job over the bad press now :( not her fault that the story blew up but yeah :/

YouTuber Films Suicide Victim, Doesn't Get Why His Jokes Arent Funny
[tw: mentions suicide] This is Logan Paul, YouTuber and brother of Jake Paul and equally influential YouTuber. He has over 15 million subscribers and makes videos about pranks, extreme sports, and basically living off of all the money he makes. Most of his fans are under the age of 17. He has been posting a video every single day for over a year and plenty have been controversial (one of his most successful videos is when he reacts to seeing color for the first time, but then he later admitted that he lied about being color blind) This week though, even his fans have said he has gone too far. He is currently in Japan and making videos about his trip, but he and his friends headed to Aokigahara, also known as Japan's suicide forest. It's the most popular place to tortured people to end their lives. It is known for its beauty so people do go there just to see the nature, but they went into the restricted section. They go on a visit to the forest intending to focus on the "haunted" aspect of it, he says in the video. After walking a short distance into the forest, the group come across a body. The group is filmed approaching the body, which is shown in several close-ups where only the face is blurred out. A member of the group is heard off camera saying he "doesn't feel good". Paul then asks him: "What, you never stand next to a dead guy?" He then laughs. He then took the time to pose with the man (who is revealed to have just died a few hours before due to the color of his body) in order to get the perfect thumbnail and then posted it on his channel. This is literally what the thumbnail image was: It got over 6 million views. Later in the video they joked that YouTube wouldn't put ads on a video with a dead guy so they might as well take sake shots too (YT has a new strict algorithm about what kind of content can make money and obviously suicide isnt one of them) After the video got a ton of criticism, he took the video down and issued this half ass apology: He later posted a video apology but come on. This is just disgusting. I am so sorry to the family of that victim and to anyone who has been affected by suicide. There is NO excuse for what he did. If it was a live stream and an accident I could understand if he was overwhelmed, forgot to turn the camera off, etc. But this was filmed, edited, and uploaded. He zoomed in and took from different angles. He posed for pictures with the body. He is trash. If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please visit for a way out of depression.

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
