(CBS) Miley Cyrus had lots of people laughing when she spoofed Lindsay Lohan while hosting "Saturday Night Live" last weekend, but Lohan didn't appreciate the jokes made at her expense.

The actress reportedly contacted "SNL" creator Lorne Michaels to express her disappointment.

Sources told TMZ on Monday that Lohan has considered Michaels to be "a mentor and father figure" and felt betrayed that he allowed Cyrus to mock her on TV, so she wrote an email to let him know she was upset.

Cyrus' "SNL" Lohan-bashing began in her opening monologue, when she sang a musical number that included the line, "I never stole a necklace or got a DUI .. never cheated on wife like that golfer guy ... so what if you can see a little boob from the side ... I'm sorry if I'm not perfect."

Later in the show, the former "Hannah Montana" star appeared as Lohan in a sketch that had her as a guest on a Charlie Sheen-hosted talk show (Sheen was played by Bill Hader).

Dressed in a long blonde wig, Cyrus joked about  Lohan's stalled career and legal troubles: "My new movie "Herbie" opened 68 months ago and the Los Angeles Court House just gave me my own parking spot. Winning! Duh!"

Lohan hasn't received an email back from Michaels yet, according to TMZ's report.

What do you think - did the jokes go too far, or is Lohan being too sensitive? Tell us in the comments.
