Rihanna Song Pulled Again after Singer Curses CBS for Pulling it During Ray Rice Scandal

Last week, CBS replaced the song with a report by CBS News anchor Norah O’Donnell about former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was all over the news after a video surfaced of him punching then-fiancee (current wife) Janay Palmer in an Atlantic City elevator, noted Salon.com.

CBS claimed it pulled “Run This Town” last Thursday to maintain an “appropriate tone,” which critics say was linked to Rihanna being a victim of domestic violence while dating rapper Chris Brown in 2009, reports CNN.

In response to CBS’ reinstatement of her tune, Rihanna slammed them on Twitter:

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

CNN reports that CBS said in a statement after the singers’ tweet: “Beginning this Thursday, we will be moving in a different direction with some elements of our ‘Thursday Night Football’ open.”
