Dakota Johnson Faces Backlash After Controversial SNL Skit
Dakota Johnson is facing criticism today after starring in an ISIS skit on Saturday Night Live.
The actress, who was hosting the show this weekend, played a young woman in the sketch which also involved Taran Killam and Kyle Mooney.
She is dropped off at the airport by her father before being picked up by a truck filled with ISIS members. (You can watch it below.)
Video via YouTube.
According to reports it is supposed to be a parody of a Toyota Camry ad and also references the news stories about young women leaving home to join the group.
While some made the point that SNL is known for dealing with controversial topics, a lot of people thought the sketch went too far…
Now I'm not one to be offended easily, but that #SNL ISIS skit? That was a little rough, guys...

When you have loved ones being slaughtered by ISIS, the #SNL skit doesn't seem so funny. Absolutely disgusting @nbcsnl
