The E! star says “The Hunger Games” actress is arrogant for making the statements

Joan Rivers is striking back at Jennifer Lawrence for comments she made about E!'s “Fashion Police.”

While promoting “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” via a Yahoo chat, Lawrence said shows like Rivers’ red carpet style series are teaching viewers to be judge others on a shallow level.

“There's shows like the ‘Fashion Police’ and things like that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on things,” the 23-year-old actress said, “that they put values in all the things that are wrong and that it's OK to point at people and call them ‘ugly’ and call them ‘fat’ and they call it ‘fun’ and ‘welcome to the real world.'”

This is just the latest example of Lawrence getting into trouble over things she has said while promoting the new film. On Tuesday, several sites tried to create a feud between her and Miley Cyrus – even though she never really said anything about the twerk-obsessed singer.

    Actually, Jennifer did make a mistake. She thinks people watch Fashion Police.

    Latest example of Jennifer Lawrence getting in trouble for things she said while promoting Catching Fire???…Lawrence was praised oM.nly a few days ago and really that still stands. Lawrence was right regarding her comments about FP. Is The Wrap a gossip site now?. Take a look then at thode sites and read all the support Lawrence is getting froM.m readers. Good for her.

    So a person who based a career on slagging off others cannot take even the mildest accurate criticism of her television show? Whatever.

    Rivers is a disgusting hypocrite who will insult others but cannot take it if someone dos the same to her. Lawrence's comments were spot-on and she basically told the truth – maybe THAT'S why Joan is so mad!!!

    Hey, Joanie – say what you want about Jennifer – but at least Ms. Lawrence made it on her own without having a famous mother giving her a job (unlike your daughter) or having to invoke good ‘ol Hollywood nepotism of the ‘Telmud’ variety (like you!)

      Please read what I wrote above. There wouldn't be a show if the Women of Hollywood and Models would stop wearing Tacky, Ugly, Bad fitting, items that make them look ridiculous. we criticize everyone else no matter what their profession, no matter what they say or do. That's what America wants, If they didn't, PEOPLE magazine and all the rest of those magazines like that would be out of business.

    if Rivers actually had a career to speak of, or a show to watch, then this would mean something, But Jennifer got it right when she said that Fashion Police is a shallow show. IT IS.

    I totally agree with what she said about “Fashion Police”. I've held basically the same exact view over many aspects of society that do the exact same thing as she's describing.

    And Joan Rivers tweeting and making fun of her falling at the Oscar's was purely childish. Everyone saw it, everyone knows about it, no one cares, but it's another example of Joan Rivers pointing out someone who is not a PERFECT and DIVINE human being, as if such a person has ever existed.

    Joan Rivers should be able to take criticism at her age. Especially during the 21st Century. But, it seems that Rivers likes to dish out the insults, but she gets bitter and cries, “FOUL!” when someone criticizes her. Hypocrisy at its basest level.

    You are all missing the point. Fashion Police is a comedy. If that show actually needs writers, everybody on that show(except for Joan) should be fired. If someone actually has to write that baloney that comes out of the mouths of everyone else on the show, how stupid are they? I like Jennifer Lawrence, but she's a little off on this. If a lot of these women in Hollywood would stop wearing some of the ugliest crap(dresses, shoes, hats, etc.)imaginable, then there wouldn't be any show. They wear dresses, shoes etc. that don't fit, are tacky, ugly, accentuate the wrong things, etc. Some of the women are paid to wear them. If they have no shame, then they open themselves up to criticism. It happens everywhere with anything.

    Joan comes from that old school of comedians who built their careers on ridiculing and trashing women. Joan is over 80 and prides herself on “staying current.” She thinks she's being contemporary by ridiculing Jennifer. But it comes across only as bitterness and anger. Joan should chill out and not hate younger women.
