You mean when she made the X-Kids fight each other to see who would get to stay right after the bus explosion? Yeah, she was pretty awful there.

Honestly, petty sniping seems to be a lot of what writers have Emma do nowadays, which seems like a big disservice to her character. Having her constantly smack talking Jean has also done nothing to elevate my opinion of her, particularly since she keeps making fun of a dead woman to said dead woman's friends. (It actually makes me think less of a lot of the X-Men, especially Beast.)

And her treatment of Laura. And doing jack-all to find Kevin when he ran away. And going along with Scott on the whole "Xavier's dead! Everyone out of the pool! PTSD? What PTSD?" during Divided We Stand.

I don't particularly care how snotty Emma is to the other adults in her orbit. But every time a writer tries to sell me on "No, really, Emma's harsh but she cares about the kids!", it rings false given the moments of disregard or petty cruelty that keep cropping up around the kids.

Generally, I just pretend this is a Skrull and GenX-era Emma is still in a tube somewhere, dreaming her terrible vengeance.
