Sunday it was revealed that
Slimey Nasty Rotten Ray Rice plans to appeal his indefinite NFL suspension by claiming that TMZ “cleaned up” the videotape showing his assault on his then-fianceé-now-wife in an Atlantic City casino elevator.
This tells us several things about Rotten Ray Rice:
1. He believes he is the victim, therefore he refuses to accept responsibility.
Oh poor him…the video only showed him knocking out and then dragging Janay from the elevator. He expects people to believe that something from the uncut video will somehow justify his abuse. Of course he is victimized because the “whole truth” hasn’t come out and that caused him to lose his undeserved high income. Never mind that Rice brutally attacked his fianceé…that couldn’t possibly be the most important part of the footage.
2. He is unrepentant about his obvious abuse.
When a person with a conscience is caught doing something wrong, they feel horrible and admit their wrongdoing, accept responsibility, show humility, and change their behavior. Does Rice sound humble to you?
3. Rice’s argument is an attempt to gaslight the issue.
He is telling us not to fully trust what we’ve seen with our own eyes. We are inferior, how can we possibly understand that the real issue is the edited tape, not his abuse?
Newsflash–We are onto you Rotten Ray Rice!
