Yesterday was surely draining for the Rice family. After TMZ leaked the elevator footage of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his wife unconscious and then dragging her out of the elevator, Rice was cut from the Ravens and then banned from the NFL indefinitely. The couple has received major backlash from fans and media-alike and now Janay Rice is speaking out about how the last 24 hours has affected her life.
In a Instagram post this morning, she seemingly blamed the media for causing her family pain. A portion of her post read “No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific.”
The incident that sparked this whole fiasco occurred back in February in Atlantic City, New Jersey at The Revel Casino.
