If CBS wants Rihanna’s theme song back for Thursday Night Football…they may want to think again! The network pulled the singer’s theme from the show last Thursday during the Pittsburgh Steelers/Baltimore Ravens game, amid controversy surrounding Ravens player Ray Rice.
Rice was famously suspended from the NFL last week, after a video surfaced of him punching his wife, Janay Rice, in an elevator. RiRi went through a similar situation in 2009, when she was physically assaulted by then-boyfriend Chris Brown.
Now, five days after the decision was made to omit the song from Thursday Night Football, Rihanna is making her feelings toward the situation public. “CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday?” she tweeted. “NO, F— you! Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this.” Afterward, she added, “The audacity…”
Following the tweet, CBS announced that it will be permanently getting rid of Rihanna’s song from the weekly event.
