The day after the release of the horrible video of Ray Rice punching his then fiance now wife Janay, his firing by the Baltimore Ravens and put on indefinite suspension by the NFL, the only victim of this tragedy Janay has posted a statement on her Instagram account.

“I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling
like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept
the fact that it’s reality is a nightmare in itself. No one knows the
pain that the media & unwanted opinions from the public has caused my
family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every
day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that
he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is
horrific. THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don’t you all get. If your intentions
were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness
away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to
grow & show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love you!”
