Rihanna Fires Off at CBS Executives for Dropping Song from Thursday Night Football

0

Rihanna has aimed a foul-mouthed rant at CBS bosses for dropping her song from a sports show in the aftermath of a domestic violence scandal affecting a player.

The pop star’s hit track “Run This Town” had been reworked with a comedic segment featuring Don Cheadle for broadcast on Thursday Night Football last week.

However, the song was dropped from the line-up after Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice was caught on camera allegedly assaulting his partner in an elevator resulting in a ban from playing in the National Football League (NFL).

Rihanna, who was a victim of domestic violence herself in 2009, has now spoken out about the song ban and accused TV bosses of punishing her for someone else’s mistakes, insisting she does not want them running the track in this week’s show.

In a serious of posts on Twitter, she writes, “CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F**k you! Y’all are sad for penalising me for this… The audacity…”


Reports suggest CBS bosses now plan to drop Rihanna’s song for a second time following her Twitter rant.
