NFL Scandal: Rihanna Sends a Big “FU” to CBS
Ray Rice is Hurting Everyone.
As seen on Twitter and in a Gawker report by Allie Jones, Rihanna sent a big “f..k you” to CBS. The league’s decision to pull her single “Run This Town” from the Thursday Night Football intro has upset the gorgeous performer. Media speculation is that given Rihanna’s abusive relationship with R&B singer Chris Brown, the song wasn’t appropriate. The NFL continues to create bad optics for itself in the aftermath of the Ray Rice fiasco.
CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, Fuck you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this.

Talk about hypocrisy. CBS and the NFL think Rihanna sends the wrong message? Take a look at the personal behavior of many current and past NFL players. There are players in the league right now with criminal records, DUIs, and pending legal matters for everything from paternity to fraud. Once again, CBS and the NFL screw themselves. Who suffers? The NFL fans who love Rihanna and her music. Good job Roger.
