Domestic Violence Group Rips SNL's Tiger Sketch

12/7/2009 7:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Saturday Night Live" joked about Tiger Woods being beaten by his wife Elin during a sketch on the show this weekend -- but the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence ... they ain't laughin'.



TMZ spoke with the organization's Executive Director Rita Smith, who told us she was "horrified" that SNL "made such a mockery of abuse."

During the sketch, Woods -- played by Kenan Thompson -- is visibly battered and holding up signs warning that Elin -- played by Blake Lively -- has beaten him.

During the show, the audience laughs, but Smith claims, "There's nothing funny about this story, particularly if violence was part of the events that took place ... I hope that SNL refrains from using this kind of skit in the future as it diminishes people's support for victims of domestic violence."

No proof of domestic violence and I think they are missing the point. With most men cheating, this one got caught and it is something all women would love to do, but don't. It was stress relief to me.

KICK ROCKS    

INSTEAD OF TRIPPING OVER SOME TV SHOW. GO SAVE SOME TEENS!
USE YOUR TIME TO TEACH PARENTS TO RAISE SMART ADULTS THAT WOULDNT STAY OR DATE A VIOLENT PERSON.
ALSO TO RAISE CHILDREN THAT RESPECT ONE ANOTHER AND LOSE THE PHRASE KIDS WILL BE KIDS WHEN THEY PUT HANDS ON EACH OTHER.
H E L L O ????????????!?!!!!!!!!!!!!
