Ray Rice’s Wife Defends Husband, Blames Media

The Ravens had no choice but to cut Ray Rice yesterday in light of the recent TMZ footage, but his wife is not happy about it all. I can’t even begin to imagine the toll that has taken on the Rice family. Especially since there are kids involved. But Rice’s release is what needed to be done.

His wife, Janay Palmer, took to Instagram to voice her frustration with everyone else but the man her punched her in the face. That’s right, she is blaming us for taking football away from her husband. Look, I understand her frustration but it is severly misdirected.

Here’s her Instagram statement:

“I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend,” Janay Rice wrote. “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 [off] 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!”

Maybe its the punch that has her still groggy or its the spending sprees and first class, star treatment that she will miss but Janay you need to reevaluate this whole situation before you release stuff to the media. You been KOd cold by that man that youre defending. Forgive the world if we were defending your ass.This aint bout what you want. This is about standing up for abused women who unlike you, needs a voice.
