A “Saturday Night Live” commercial spoof is stirring outrage online over its depiction of a female high school graduate who leaves her family to join the Islamic State militant group also known as ISIS.
The ad, starring “SNL” host and “50 Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson is a spoof of the Toyota commercial that portrays an Army-bound daughter being dropped off at the airport by her father. In the “SNL” version, though, the daughter is being picked up by Islamic militants in a Toyota pickup truck.
“You be careful, OK?” says the father, played by Taran Killam.
“Dad, it’s just ISIS,” she replies.
When a teary-eyed Killam instructs one of the militants, played by Kyle Mooney, to “take care of her,” he replies, “Death to America.”
As the truck drives away, a voice-over assures Killam: “ISIS: We’ll take it from here, Dad.”
While the studio audience seemed to laugh, plenty of viewers at home didn’t find it so funny.

The people who are complaining most likely do not watch SNL or any other comedy on television this century besides the pablum on prime time network television. And even the network sitcom Big Bang Theory had a running bit about a character who had sex with a North Korean spy.
Most likely this is some of the usual culture warrior suspects using this to try and stir up controversy.

That's too funny!
I'm sure it will give some Fox pundits something to vent.
They could have added this:
The mother "Isn't it great that our lovely daughter will be heading to college?"
The Father "Don't remind me..."
