Never one to let an insult go without a social media response, Rihanna has taken CBS to task for canceling her Thursday Night Football appearance in the wake of the Ray Rice scandal.

In what was a boneheaded decision in the midst of several boneheaded decisions around the Ray Rice matter, CBS decided to bump Rihanna’s performance of “Run This Town” with Don Cheadle from the broadcast, citing the need to change the “tone” of the show.

So, punishing a domestic violence victim because of an NFL player’s admitted abuse was the right tone?

Rihanna apparently didn’t think so. Although she was initially quiet after the cancellation, hearing the very same song she was supposed to perform on another CBS football broadcast didn’t sit well with the pop star.
