By  |  0 Comments

After CBS dedicated a lot of last week’s Thursday Night Football debut to the Ray Rice situation, the also decided to not use the song “Run This Town” featuring Rihanna or a prerecorded clip with Rih and Don Cheadle before the game. The decision has ruffled a lot of feathers.

A few feathers that were ruffled included Rihanna’s and today she responded on Twitter with the following two tweets:

CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F**k you! Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this.”

The audacity…”

Her rep follow with this statement to US Weekly:

“Due to the misuse and misrepresentation of Rihanna’s name and participation in connection to CBS’ TNF, CBS was not allowed to license and utilize the song ‘Run This Town.’ Roc Nation made the decision to not grant the song’s usage.”

The network has decided not to use the singer’s music for the rest of the season. Unfortunately it seems as though the network pulled her music due to her past as a victim of domestic violence and in turn was trying to be sensitive, but that backfired.
