Ray Rice: Domestic Violence? or Should We Mind Our Business?

Has drama in the elevator become a norm?
I say this on behalf of Solange Knowles and Ray Rice. Can’t anything get passed TMZ especially after catching these violent acts of Solange beating up Jay-Z to now recent story of Ray Rice beating his girlfriend; which is now a collaboration of Rihanna vs. Chris Brown’s incident, and Jay-Z vs Solange’s incident mixed together. Should we give them a doggy biscuit?

Ray Rice a former or still current NFL player for Ravens was soon dropped from the team and Suspended indefinitely by the NFL. Apparently, the incident happened two months ago, and since then the two are now married. When asked to NFL why they haven’t received the footage earlier allegedly, they asked the police and never got it. However, TMZ was able to receive it. Maybe, TMZ was able to pay for more the footage? Doubt it. According to CNN, NFL only suspended Ray Rice for two games and now feeling the wrath of not taking this incident much more seriously. Could domestic violence be common amongst NFL?

Rice replayed that night “over and over his his head” to continue saying those actions  “weren’t him.” Why apologize for something you did and then dismiss it in the same breath. It seems platonic and rehearsed and I say with with most celebrity incidents. Maybe, because they are men, I don’t know, but public apologies seems unoriginal, plain and emotionless. It’s like saying an apology to get it over with. I could sound a little harsh on the guy. To be honest, I am not even enraged although I oppose domestic violence on both ends, Janay Rice seems to be okay with it. I find it hard to get through when you slap your love one twice leaving them unconscious dragging them out the floor. I would be in state of shock that I did something that extreme. That’s just me and we all handle situations differently.

So, Mrs Janay Rice released her statement about the situation as well. Hot97 covered it showing a picture of her response on what seems like Instagram.

Janay Rice States, I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feelling 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 everyday is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he was 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, makes 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!”

We should just totally mind your business, because clearly after this, she accepts everything. Who are we to tell her to leave her relationship or to take appropriate action. She says everything is okay! And everything happened was suppose to happen. Even better she saying that this situation is real love. Now, I understand when you get through problems and sticking out the worst of the worst situations, but does that even includes getting knocked unconscious?

Then get married soon afterwards, Well, all in hopes she maintains with him through the highs and lows of his career from this. Were it wont seem like she is with him for the money, as they stereotype most of these industry girls anyways.

So, I ask you all. How you do you feel about Janay’s response and her defending her husband Ray Rice? Do you feel that’s what true love is? Or should we just mind our business?

  1. Celebrities ask for us to be in their business right? When they become celebrities. You can’t ask the public only to pay attention to certain things is what these big money makers and celebrities are learning. 🙂


  2. I have mixed feelings about this entire incident. I am totally opposed to any type of domestic abuse, mental, emotional and physical. However, I do believe more is here than what is presented and I do sincerely believe that the NFL executives who mishandled this from the very beginning should be sacked, too.
