Janay Palmer Rice spoke out Tuesday morning for the first time since her husband Ray Rice was cut by the Ravens and suspended by the NFL after video showed him knocking Janay unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator.

Rice wrote in an Instagram post (above) saying she felt like she was “mourning the death” of her closest friend. She took aim at the media for publishing the video and said that “no one knows the pain that the media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family.”

Ray Rice has not commented publicly since being released, and the only public comments from Ravens officials came in a press conference held Monday night by coach John Harbaugh, who said he had “nothing but hope and good will” for the Rices.
