Rihanna has two words for CBS and they aren’t the nicest.
In the wake of the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal, CBS dropped Rihanna’s song “Run This Town” from a pre-game show last week. Rih was the victim in a high profile domestic violence case involving Chris Brown back in 2009 and wasn’t pleased with the network’s decision.
Without biting her tongue, the 26-year-old made her thoughts regarding the CBS’s decision very clear in a tweet posted early Tuesday morning to her 37.2 million Twitter followers.
“CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F*ck you! Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this.”
She followed up by writing, “The audacity…”
Last week’s opening segment for the Ravens vs Steelers game would have featured Rihanna’s song while Don Cheadle introduced the teams. Instead, CBS opted to run a report from journalist, Norah O’Donnell.
“It’s important to realize we are not overreacting to this story but it is as big a story as has faced the NFL,” CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said. “We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone and coverage. A lot of the production elements we wanted in the show are being eliminated because of time or tone.”
