BOMBSHELL: The Ravens Made Janay Rice Apologize For Her Role In Domestic Violence Incident

Back in May, Ray and Janay Rice held a press conference regarding the first TMZ video that showed his then fiancée being kicked through the lobby of a now defunct Atlantic City hotel. The takeaway for most major media outlets was that Janay Rice should not have apologized, because when a victim of domestic violence accepts responsibility for bringing physical harm on themselves, they're justifying it.
Apparently Janay Rice was coached to do this. The Ravens are bad people.
Matt Lauer: And did anyone at the Ravens say, "Janay, it would be really good if you issued some kind of apology."
Janay Rice: They suggested it, yes.
Matt Lauer: Did they come up with the wording?
Janay Rice: No, not specifically. They basically gave us a general script.
Matt Lauer: Had it not been for the Ravens urging you, or suggesting, you apologize, you would have not been at that press conference and you would have never apologized.
Janay Rice: No.
Ravens' owner Steve Biscotti tried to distance himself from the situation in October, saying the organization did not know the severity of incident that resulted in Mrs. Rice laying unconscious on the floor of a casino. Judging by her interview this morning on The Today Show, they must have thought the events leading up to the first leaked video were so benign that she may have done it to herself -- because they outright asked her to apologize on national television as if she deserved it.
Ray Rice was reinstated on Friday.
