Dawn.com : An invitation to appear on Saturday Night Live is seen as a pretty big deal — but Dakota Johnson may have blown her chance to prove she has comedic chops.
On the comedy show, Johnson starred in a skit that had her act out the part of a young girl ready to join ISIS.
In the skit, when questioned by her father (played by another SNL actor, Taran Killam) Johnson says: “It’s just Isis, dad.” The father later tells an IS recruiter to take care of his daughter, to which the IS member replies: “Death to America.”
The skit came at the heels of news that three British schoolgirls had run away to join ISIS.
As for Johnson, attacks poured in:
Cliff Saunders : And SNL goes a tad too far. Not funny. Not at all.
But as of Tuesday morning, an equal number of people seemed to be defending Johnson:
Jessica Winter: I’m late to this but I thought the Dakota Johnson ISIS skit was really funny.
Either way, the 50 Shades star got lots of attention, and in Hollywood that’s seldom a bad thing.
