As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, some suggested "SNL" parodied domestic violence in a skit starring guest host Blake Lively as Elin Nordegren and Kenan Thompson as Tiger Woods, following the golfer's now infamous car accident.
But Rihanna, whose own past experience with abuse at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown has been well documented, said she wasn't bothered by the skit.
"Violence should of course be avoided at any cost, but 'Saturday Night Live' is a show that finds humor in every serious situation, so it wasn't offensive to me in any way," she told the February 2010 issue of W magazine.
Recently, Rihanna has spoken out about her own experience with domestic violence, after many months of keeping silent.
"Not talking was a big thing for me," the singer told the mag. "I'm glad I didn't talk to people, because I was able to deal with things in my own way, without saying the wrong things or giving people the wrong impression."
And she said she has come to terms with what happened and is looking to the future.
"At first I completely shut down. But now I feel like this happened to me so I could be a voice for young girls who are going through what I went through and don't know how to talk about it," she said. "It's not about Chris, about hurting him or sabotaging his career. I don't care about that part of it."
