The wife of shamed NFL player Ray Rice has slammed the media today, accusing them of “embarrassing her” after covering the release of CCTV footage which saw her Rice drag her unconscious body out of an elevator after he punched her in the face.
Her surprising response to the drama below…
I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept the fact that it’s reality is a nightmare in itself. 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.THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don’t you all get. If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is!Ravensnation we love you!
What may have prompted her anger? News that Rice has been cut from the ‘Baltimore Ravens’ and a statement released by the President of the United States Barack Obama, who slammed the violent athlete through a White House rep with:
The President is the father of two daughters. And like any American he believes that domestic violence is contemptible and unacceptable in any civilised society.
Hitting a woman is not something a real man does, and that’s true whether or not an act of violence happens in the public eye, or, all too often, behind closed doors.
Stopping domestic violence is something that’s bigger than football – and all of us have a responsibility to put a stop to it.
