my 8yr old is worried about getting her dad into trouble

My daughter is 8yrs old. She goes to her father's for the weekends and is week me during the school week. Last time she came back from her father's she told me about a game that he got for them to play...a completely inappropriate game mind you...and she told me about the game. I asked her some questions about the game and she answered a couple and then became concerned that her father was going to get into trouble. Is this normal for an 8yr old to be worried about getting an adult (her father) into trouble by telling me something? One friend of mine who's daughter is grown now told me that it's not normal and that there may be something else going on....
Can anyone give me some feedback?

My son recently told me some stuff and he said he was worried he would get into trouble my telling me or I would get mad and I'm very open with him.  So yes, I believe it! You can explain to her that you don't like the game the father is playing and you will have to figure out something to do about it but she's not going to get into trouble and you will try to handle it without getting him in trouble too.
