A. J. Delgado, a National Review columnist, says former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is “a victim,” and the shocking elevator video footage actually helped his case.
Ray Rice’s long-suffering wife Janay Rice is a trending topic on social media giant Twitter.com. Janay posted a response on her private Instagram page blaming the media and public opinion for her husband’s indefinite suspension from the NFL on Monday.
Typical of most women who suffer from battered women syndrome, Janay wrote: “No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted [opinions] has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing.”
Janay’s statement didn’t go over so well with women on social media, who criticized her harshly for staying and defending her abuser.
Former rapper Cee Lo Green apologized profusely for Tweets he sent into the universe implying that an unconscious woman can’t be raped.

Most good decent people have a moral line they will not cross. That line was crossed on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday when guest host Karrueche Tran (Chris Brown’s on-again, off-again concubine) disrespected Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy. Karrueche mentioned Blue Ivy’s unkempt hair days in a skit which didn’t go over well with the BET audience or Black Twitter, the monolithic, influential collective of opinionated black users on Twitter.com.
