Yesterday’s TMZ‘s video release of the Ray Rice knocking his wife unconscious not only ended his US football career but also caused an outrage on social media. Many celebrities spoke on the issue concerning the now-former Baltimore Raven running back and his family. However the most scandalous of commentators goes to former Scandal star Columbus Short.
The troubled actor took to his Instagram to put in is two cents. Under an uploaded picture of Rice, Short posted “DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NEVER OKAY!!!…Violence against women we should love and adorn is UNEXCEPTABLE.”
After posting the message, the 31-year-old received backlash for being hypocritical due to facing domestic violence charges earlier this year and has since deleted the post. Back in April, it was revealed that Short had choked his wife, threatened to kill her and himself one night while intoxicated in their home. Short was able to dodge jail time and is currently probation.
