Last week, the NFL decided to pull Rihanna’s song “Run This Town” from the broadcast because they wanted to portray “a more serious tone” in light of the Ray Rice debacle.
The NFL pulled Rihanna from last week’s broadcast because she was the victim of domestic violence.

NAH, let’s cut her out and let Phil Simms talk about domestic violence. Because that’ll be exciting.
