"I stand with victims everywhere no matter what genre, race, gender, age," the singer says.

Fergie has put to rest any concern that Quentin Tarantino harmed her on the set of "Planet Terror."

The "Fergalicious" singer, who starred in the 2007 horror comedy, says behind-the-scenes footage of her talking about being bitten by the famous filmmaker is being taken out of context and that it doesn't have a place in the current conversation about the mistreatment of women and abuse of power in Hollywood and beyond.

"First off, I stand with victims everywhere no matter what genre, race, gender, age," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I stand with victims period, and I don't want to take away from anyone's story. That just wasn't my story."

"We were just kind of having banter," she said. "We were having a little bit of fun. But make no mistake, I don't want to take away from anyone's story, and I stand with every victim and everyone's story everywhere."

The footage in question from the Robert Rodriguez-directed movie shows Fergie getting attacked by a group of zombies, which included Tarantino. In the clip, Fergie shows a bruise on her arm, allegedly left by Tarantino's bite, but she doesn't appear to be upset or bothered, even telling the camera, "By the end of this shoot, I will bite him back."

Tarantino was under fire earlier this week over comments he made in a 2003 Howard Stern interview, in which the filmmaker argued Roman Polanski's 13-year-old statutory rape victim -- Samantha Geimer -- "wanted to have it." He backpedaled on his comments on Thursday, admitting, "I realize how wrong I was. Ms. Geimer WAS raped by Roman Polanski."

"When Howard brought up Polanski, I incorrectly played devil's advocate in the debate for the sake of being provocative," he said. "I didn't take Ms. Geimer's feelings into consideration and for that I am truly sorry."

Last week, Uma Thurman opened up to The New York Times about a feud she had with Tarantino during and after the filming of "Kill Bill." Thurman accused Tarantino of "trying to kill" her during a now-famous scene where she had to drive a blue convertible in what she felt were unsafe conditions. Thurman claims Tarantino dismissed her concerns, which left her with a "permanently damaged neck" and "screwed-up knees" after she slammed the car into a tree.
