The Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal continues to rock the NFL and its fans, and now subsequent programming decisions made in its wake have affected Rihanna in a really direct, negative way.
"Run This Town," Jay Z's track with Rihanna and Kanye, provided the opening intro music for CBS' Thursday Night Football, and it was pulled from the segment last week after the shocking video of Rice assaulting his then-fiancee surfaced. Given her own experience as a victim of domestic violence, the decision to nix Rihanna's song was a difficult one from all angles—and for Rihanna, it was downright insensitive.
RiRi took to her Twitter account to comment on CBS' decision to pull "Run This Town" from Thursday Night Football, as they've apparently decided to throw the track back into their regular programming:
The audacity...— Rihanna (@rihanna) September 16, 2014
CBS has yet to respond to the singer.
