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."

What better way to get free publicity. I didn't even know this group existed. What is with "Coalition"? Just another "non-profit" group (LIARS...someone is making money). My question is to any NCADV member...what is it you do? Where is your data showing that you have done any good to society? Where is the Drinking Coalition? Where is the Smoking Coalition? Just free publicity and you know it. NCADV you are barking up the wrong tree...you are going against the media (TV) giants over a dumb, but funny skit. For that matter, why don't we shut down Broadway or the Opera...they perform such skits too, you know. FREEE PUBLICITY...DO NOT GIVE IT TO THEM...LET THEM PAY FOR IT!

This is what is wrong with America -- have a sense of humor people -- if you can't laugh at this then don't watch it -- there are a few bigger issues than Tiger Woods out there to focus on

There was no case OF DOMESTIC DISPUTE. No sure where they got their information from. Had the FHP thought there was ELIN would of been in the Slammer and guess what? I AM SURE WHATEVER HAPPENED HE DESERVED IT! This isn't about A DOMESTIC DISPUTE this is about A SELF INFLICTED WOUND that the "YOU CAN'T TOUCH THIS" TIGER WOODS created! Come on 9 WOMEN and still growing, married with two KIDS ! GET A GRIP!

Tiger was protecting his wife from being arrested by not telling the truth about her beating him.

Anyway, what man wants to be the first poster boy for violence against men? Especially if you're on your way to earning $1 billion hitting a white ball around.

Medical legal issues    

MSNBC is now reporting Woods ended up in the intensive care unit after being nearly beaten to death by Elin:

"When Tiger Woods was brought to the Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., his condition was more serious than previously reported. According to a person with knowledge of Woods’ hospital admission, the star golfer had to be admitted directly to the hospital’s intensive care unit, where he was immediately intubated and his breathing stabilized."

Do any of you get it? He was put on life support after this beating.

He was "snoring" at the scene because his windpipe or trachea was damaged, not because of drug or alcohol intoxication.

Does someone who committed adultery deserve to be beaten so badly they are in an intensive care unit? He was also prematurely discharged to home to protect "the families privacy".

Elin Woods deserves to be convicted of domestic violence. Not protected.
