Rihanna rips CBS for pulling her 'Thursday Night Football' intro

After having her intro pulled from the opening segment of Thursday Night Football last week, Rihanna called out CBS for trying to use the segment in this week's broadcast.

"CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F-ck you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this," the 26-year-old star angrily tweeted early this morning. She followed up with. "The audacity..."

Due to the domestic violence controversy surrounding Ray Rice, the network felt that it wasn't appropriate to air the original planned intro featuring Rihanna's "Run This Town" and a comedy skit.

"We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone and coverage," CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus explained. "A lot of the production elements we wanted in the show are being eliminated because of time or tone."

The network also factored in Rihanna's 2009 domestic violence case with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
