CBS made a decision to change its pregame show for Week 1 of the NFL season, and Rihanna is not taking it very well.
The network debuted its new “Thursday Night Football” broadcast with a game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unfortunately for CBS, much of the conversation heading into that game centered around the Ray Rice casino elevator video and the NFL’s response to the situation.
CBS eventually made the decision to go in a different direction with its pregame show. The program was almost entirely devoted to the Rice fiasco, and the network decided to pull Rihanna’s new “Thursday Night Football” music video intro. The network said it wanted to focus on the Rice issue, and it probably didn’t help that Rihanna herself was the victim in a domestic violence case, too.
The wildly popular pop star was not happy with that move, and she took to Twitter on Tuesday to blast CBS for the decision.
