Jennifer Lawrence - Did Jennifer Lawrence Go Too Far On Saturday Night Live?

Jennifer Lawrence has sparked criticism for her risque comments on 'Saturday Night Live'.

The 'Hunger Games' actress poked fun of her fellow Oscar nominees while hosting the infamous US comedy show, hitting out at both 'Zero Dark Thirty' star Jessica Chastain and Best Supporting Actor contender Tommy Lee Jones.

She scoffed: ''Well, well, well. Look who it is. Jessica Chastain. More like, Jessica Chas-ain't winning no Oscar on my watch! In 'Zero Dark Thirty' you caught Bin Laden. So what? In 'Winter's Bone' I caught a squirrel - and then I ate it. Boom. Deal with that!''

Jennifer then enthused that the highlight of the Golden Globes ceremony last Sunday (13.01.13) was meeting ''the most fun person I've ever met: Tommy Lee Jones!''

The camera then cut to comedian Bill Hader sitting glum-faced in the crowd, imitating Tommy.

Her antics have received mixed responses from critics and the public alike, with one Deadline commentator describing her sketch as ''Tacky. Gone from finding her 'uncensored' and 'fresh' to 'disrespectful' and 'entitled'.''

Another added: ''I didn't find it particularly arrogant or disrespectful. The real tragedy here, is that it just isn't funny!''

The 22-year-old actress' hosting gig comes just one week after she caused a controversy upon collecting her Best Actress Golden Globe for 'Silver Linings Playbook' and joked: ''I beat Meryl Streep!''

Jennifer was blasted on Twitter for her comment, with stars like Lindsay Lohan even weighing in on the debate.

She responded: ''I was like, is that what this turned into? I don't like Meryl Streep? As if I've had my eyes on getting that girl forever and I was like, 'Finally! I knew it would happen one day'.''

It wasn't just Jennifer Lawrence. I don't think she wrote the monologue just read it (and kind of stiff at that), but the WRITERS of SNL should be to blame. Could she have said, no I'm not reading that? I don't know, I've never hosted SNL, so don't kill the messenger!
