'SNL' Shocks and Offends Viewers With Controversial ISIS Sketch
On last night's "Saturday Night Live," host Dakota Johnson appeared in a sketch that spoofed a heartfelt Toyota commercial in which a father drops his daughter off at the airport to join the Army.
In the "SNL" version, however, the daughter wasn't joining the U.S. military ... she's linking up with ISIS!
"You be careful, okay?" the emotional father says to his daughter.
"Dad, it’s just ISIS," Johnson reassures him before hopping in the back of a pickup with ISIS terrorists.
A voiceover concludes the sketch, "ISIS. We'll take it from here, Dad."
Outraged viewers immediately took to social media to voice their displeasure with the fake commercial and the premise of making light of the brutal terror group.
SNL just hit rock bottom with that ISIS skit. That was absolutely awful.

Wow. I found NOTHING funny about that ISIS #SNL skit. Sorry, but no laughing matter. Ever.
