Watch the ‘SNL’ ISIS Spoof that Outraged the Nation
Did a Saturday Night Live fake commercial featuring ISIS go too far?
Many are saying the skit, a parody of Toyota's Super Bowl ad, "My Bold Dad," crossed the line from edgy to offensive.
The spoof, featuring Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, begins with a father dropping his daughter off at the airport for the start of her big life adventure -- presumably the armed forces. But Johnson doesn't enter the airport or get on a bus. Instead, a pickup truck full of bearded armed militants arrives to pick her up.
"You be careful," Killam says.
"Dad, it's just ISIS," Johnson responds.
After Johnson climbs into the truck, the dad says, "Take care of her." "Death to America," the militant responds. The skit drew immediate criticism on social media, with some calling it "unfunny," "vile" and in "horrible taste."
