You might have predicted that some controversy would arise when "Fifty Shades of Grey" star Dakota Johnson appeared on "Saturday Night Live" this week.

But you might not have expected where the controversy would be.

People are expressing outrage after Johnson appeared in an "SNL" sketch about a father dropping his daughter off with the Islamic State.

Playing off the trope of a dad letting his daughter go as she grows up, the sketch takes a weird turn when a truck full of jihadists pulls up.

"You be careful, OK?” the father says.

“Dad, it’s just ISIS,” responds Johnson, winking.

The father says through teary eyes, "Take care of her."

A jihadist responds, equally somber, "Death to America."

On Twitter, dozens of people expressed outrage over the sketch, calling it a "disgrace" in poor taste.

Others praised the show for including the Islamic State in a "perfect" sketch.

Of course, it's not the first time "SNL" has incorporated the Islamic State into a sketch.
