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."

Ok, I was all over Elin the first day for abusing her husband. I WAS WRONG she didn't do anything to him. He had ambien phone sex with Rachel got in a fight and drove off in a car without his seatbelt on and crashed and hit his lip on the steering well. Then he fell asleep on the ground outside the car. She never touched him! That is why it is funny. If she actually hurt him it would not be funny at all and SNL would be wrong. It was funny bc people thought she hurt him but she did not.

I thought it was hilarious!!!! And Tiger was cheating on his wife with 6+ different women -- believe me, I really wouldn't blame her if she smacked him a couple of times. The organization mad about this needs to relax and focus on more important matters.

It may be funny to some of you but to most women and men it's not funny when in fact you get beatin with a bat, golf club, chairs, etc.!! Try getting beatin and then tell me it's funny!!! Experience it once in awhile and tell me it's funny!! Hopefully, your son or daughter never experience what some of us have because then you will know that it is not FUNNY!!!

Elin can do anything she wants right about now. She could probably shoot him and say it was self defense and get away with it...and take all the money. Now..I'm not saying that's a good idea...but the ball in in this girl's court...BIGTIME.
I just wish I was her attorney...cause he/she is in for a big pay-day too.

whatever    

Get over it... Tiger deserved whatever he got from her and still has more coming. Why not go after him for all the emotional abuse she is suffering at his cost. Who knows how many more skanks are gonna come forward because Tiger wanted to get his groove on.
