Singer Slams CBS For Yanking Off NFL Performance

With the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal still fresh and the Ravens set to play the Steelers, CBS opted not to run a taped musical segment featuring Rihanna due to her history with domestic violence in 2009

It only had to take a Ray Rice and perhabs Chris Brown to stop Rihanna's recorded NFL performance from airing on CBS last week! Now the singer is blasting the renown Television Network for deliberately omitting her big moment because of her past!

With the Ray Rice domesting violence scandal still fresh on the mind and the Ravens set to play the Steelers, CBS opted not to run a taped musical segment featuring Rihanna ... seeing that she was once a victim of a high-profile domestic violence incident - thanks to Chris Brown.

Instead, the  network chose to air her musical opening from "Thursday Night Football" last week, this week (on Thursday), but it became rather too late!

Rihanna already took to Twiiter yesterday to blast CBS writing, "CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F*** you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this."

Its obvious RiRi is not happy. As for what she means by "penalizing" ... it's pretty clear she feels CBS couldn't not allow her to move on after been beaten by Chris Brown 5 years ago.  She followed that up by writing, "The audacity ..."

Is Rihanna right to be pissed?
