Janay Rice just can’t seem to catch a break, not even on her birthday. Yesterday, Janay celebrated her day with a few friends, family and her husband, Ray Rice. Ray wanted to make the day special, so he pulled out all the stops. He hired former Hell’s Kitchen competitor, J.R. Robinson, to cater the dinner party and had a custom cake made into the shape of a Chanel bag. It seemed to be a great night for the happy couple, but those smiles didn’t last long. As many birthday girls would do, Janay gloated about her day and her gifts on her Instagram. She wrote a thank you note on IG post, calling Ray “the best husband in the world.” Then, the Internet pounced. Maybe Janay thought everyone forgot about the infamous video of her then-fiancé punching and dragging her out of an elevator unconscious last year. If she did, reactions ever since the post made it clear where the court of public opinion stands.

The responses have been direct and to the point. Few people suggested she should stop talking altogether. Another retweeted from TMZ responding sarcastically with, “She remarried?” Hopefully the backlash didn’t damper her happy day too much. Some things are better left said and not written.
