This Celeb Was Harsh When He Reached For Her Dog, But Does She Have A Point?

JULY 7, 2017  —  By Corinne Sanders

I'm a huge dog lover, so whenever I come across one of these cuties, my first instinct is to reach out and pet them in greeting.

While a lot of owners don't have any issue with strangers touching their dogs, some feel that it's inappropriate to do so without asking permission first -- including Jennifer Lawrence. The actress was recently leaving the LAX airport with her dog, Pippi, when a paparazzo from TMZ approached them.

Lawrence reacted very strongly when the man reached out to Pippi, but was her negative response justified? Watch below and decide for yourself.

After watching the video, some were quick to say that it definitely isn't a good idea to touch dogs you aren't familiar with...

...while others believe the encounter was innocent and blown way out of proportion.

What do you think? Should people ask permission before petting, or is it really not that big of a deal? Be sure to let us know below and share with other dog parents to get their take on this debate.
