While Kate McKinnon has received rave reviews for her Saturday Night Live portrayal of Donald Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, her appearance this week had some on Twitter calling the sketch “sexist” and “uncomfortable.”

In the sketch, McKinnon appears with Beck Bennett playing CNN’s Jake Tapper and then after CNN decides not to have Conway on for an appearance, she engages in a Fatal Attraction-type scenario where Conway, channeling Glenn Close in the 1987 movie, threatens to murder Tapper.

Did the sketch go too far? Decide for yourself.

Afterward, the Twitter reaction was mixed.
