Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson has riled US audiences with her parody video of terrorist group ISIS while appearing on Saturday Night Live.
A sketch, which riffed on Toyota’s My Bold Dad advert for the Super Bowl, presented a proud father dropping his daughter off at the airport and telling her to be careful, only for it to turn out that she has left to join the terrorist group.
The sketch concluded with the tagline "ISIS. We'll take it from here, Dad," Twitter users have reacted to claim that the sketch is not funny and was in bad taste.

However many have also come to its defence since those who took offence voiced their opinions.
Just watched that SNL ISIS skit. People were seriously mad about that? It's the funniest thing I've seen on that show in awhile.

I'm not bothered SNL made fun of ISIS; however, I think the way they went about it is where they went wrong.
