A late-night comedy show’s skit about a teenage girl going off to join ISIS with her father’s blessing has sparked anger online.
The “Saturday Night Live” sketch featured guest host Dakota Johnson as a high school graduate happily leaving home to join the extremist militant group.
Her father drops her off at the airport in a spoof of a car company ad built around a dad taking his military daughter to the airport.
Near the end, the spoof contained the line, “Dad, it’s just ISIS.”
