Ravens Tweet: Janay Rice ‘Regrets’ Her Role in Incident

Ravens tweet

There are a lot of villains in the Ray Rice domestic violence story. There’s Rice himself, who admitted to punching his fiancee in the face and knocking her unconscious. There’s the NFL, which issued a shockingly lenient two-game suspension to Rice that drew widespread public outrage.

Then there’s the Baltimore Ravens, and more specifically, whoever runs the team’s Twitter account.

The team has been criticized for months for its handling of the case, which included orchestrating a press conference at which Rice and his wife, Janay, apologized for what they described as their roles in the incident.

But after TMZ posted a video Monday morning showing Rice knocking Janay out inside an Atlantic City elevator, attention turned to a tweet the team sent on May 23.

The account, which was tweeting comments from both Ray and Janay, tweeted: “Janay Rice says she deeply regrets the role that she played the night of the incident.”

The tweet was widely criticized at the time for perpetuating the notion that Janay was partially to blame for getting punched in the face. In light of Monday’s development, it’s back in the spotlight, and the team eventually deleted it on the same day that it terminated Rice’s contract.
