SNL's ISIS Sketch Gets Lots of Backlash, Some Laughs (Video)

By    |   Monday, 02 Mar 2015 07:14 AM

SNL went out on a limb with an ISIS sketch this past weekend, and it's won them both praise and scorn.

The sketch features Dakota Johnson, star of the new "Fifty Shade of Grey" movie, and SNL cast member Taran Killam. Together, the pair lampoons the Toyota commercial that aired at the Super Bowl, mixing it with recent news reports that some Western teenagers have sought to join the militant group.



The absurdist sketch, which shows an all-American dad dropping his daughter off for her first day as a jihadist, drew instant backlash, but also some supporters.

Gathered below are some reactions to SNL's handiwork.
