Rihanna bashes network for 'audacity' to cut song from Thursday Night Football

42m ago

The NFL and CBS made the call to purge a new theme song for "Thursday Night Football" from last week's broadcast after the Rihanna number, and accompanying video, were deemed too inappropriate to air the same week the footage of Ray Rice assaulting his then-fiancee became public. 

Rihanna, a domestic abuse victim, took to Twitter on Tuesday to express her anger over having her song removed from the show.

It's unclear whether the song will air on this week's broadcast.
