The controversial around JSONP is the fact that using JSONP your application bypasses the Same Origin Policy, facilitating the fearful cross-site scripting (XSS) [1, 2]. Despite that obvious risk, there are certain scenarios where JSONP makes sense and solves a lot of problems which would require a more expensive solution without the usage of cross site scripts.
