“Would you ask a man that?” Infuriated Blake Lively blasts reporter

Don’t mess with Blake Lively.

The Gossip Girl star is receiving praise on social media after she shut down a reporter who asked her about her outfit.

The incident unfolded at Variety‘s Power of Women luncheon on Friday, where Lively gave a speech against child pornography.

Instead of asking about her work and why she was being honoured at the event, one reporter decided to talk fashion with the actress.

“Really? At this event, you’re asking me about my outfit?” Lively responded.

“Seriously…Would you ask a man that? I’m here so we become more aware, and that we change, and that we build women up. So, you can ask me another question.”

The confrontation was caught on camera by a fellow reporter and uploaded to Twitter where it has since gone viral.
