Texas Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw (R) said Friday on "The Story" that he isn't asking for apologies after being mocked for his war injuries on "Saturday Night Live."

Crenshaw, who lost his right eye in a 2012 IED attack in Afghanistan, was mocked by Pete Davidson during the show's "Weekend Update" segment Saturday, which led to a major backlash.

He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives last Tuesday, just days after the so-called joke on the popular sketch comedy show.

"I don't want to ask for apologies," he said. "Let's try harder not to be offended in this country all the time."

Although Crenshaw added that "SNL" producers privately reached out to him to apologize for Davidson's remarks, he has repeatedly called for donations to be made to veterans' organizations instead.

"I don't have to be offended. I don't have to be angry about it," he said. "[Republicans] lost the House. We didn't have to have riots, and we didn't. And I think that's a really good step in the right direction."

He said on Friday that his district is still recovering from 2017's Hurricane Harvey and that he wants to ensure it can be prepared for any future major storms.

He also said that as a veteran, Wednesday's deadly shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, is "unimaginable."

"I want to blame the evil of this man," he said of the presumed shooter, Ian David Long. "I don't think that his experience in the military made him do this. ... I think that there was truly something inside of him that made him do this."
