Dakota and all of ‘SNL’ are being slammed by fans for airing a troubling skit featuring the ‘Fifty Shades’ star joining ISIS. Click to WATCH and decide if the show went too far with their spoof.

Saturday Night Live’s latest attempt at mockery has backfired in a big way. The show aired a sketch showing a father (Taran Killam) letting his daughter (Dakota Johnson) join the terror group ISIS, and it didn’t bring the laughs they were expecting. Fans of the show had a strong reaction to the skit with some calling it “disgraceful” and vowing to quit watching the show!

At first, the sketch seemed to be poking fun at joining the army. We were wrong. When Taran’s character told Dakota to be careful, she replied, “Dad, it’s just ISIS.” Dakota’s character hopped into the car and the ISIS leader (Kyle Mooney) yelled back at the dad, “Death to America.”

Scroll below to see how fans are reacting:

We totally understand the outrage to the skit given the deaths of innocent people at the hands of ISIS. Kayla Mueller and James Foley are among the Americans that have been killed.

However, Saturday Night Live’s entire mantra is to mock, and they’re clearly making fun of ISIS. Taran Killam defended the skit on Twitter:

‘Saturday Night Live’: Not The First ISIS Sketch That’s Aired

Shockingly, this isn’t the first ISIS sketch that’s aired on SNL. Back in the Nov. 2014, Chris RockKenan Thompson, Jay Pharoah and Kyle Mooney were featured in a skit that showed a group of ISIS members trying to make it onto Shark Tank.

The controversial sketch didn’t cause near the uproar. Saturday Night Live is known for pushing the limits on satire, but they may have overstepped their boundaries this time around.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of SNL’s ISIS sketch? Did the show go too far? Let us know.
