A day after the Baltimore Ravens gave Ray Rice the boot, Janay Rice is defending her husband and lashing out at the media, the Baltimore Sun reports. "I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," she writes on Instagram. "No one knows the pain that [the] media … has caused my family." Video surfaced yesterday of her then-fiance punching her in the face.
Rice continues: "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. 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." There is much more reaction to Ray Rice's release going around.
