Rihanna Furious Over Thursday Night Football
Rihanna is fuming that her song was pulled from Thursday Night Football over the Ray Rice scandal. Meanwhile, more allegations of abuse from another NFL star Adrian Peterson are surfacing. INSIDE EDITION explains.
Rihanna is expressing fury about the decision to pull her song from Thursday Night Football.
“CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? No, [expletive] you!,” She tweeted her 37 million Twitter followers.
CBS produced a slick new opening for the game featuring actor Don Cheadle and Rihanna's hit song "Run This Town." But the opening was pulled last week because of the Ray Rice scandal. Rihanna herself was a victim of domestic violence at the hands of singer Chris Brown in 2009.
On Twitter, Rihanna broke her silence and ripped into CBS, tweeting: "Y'all are penalizing me for this."
Now, CBS is scrapping Rihanna's song altogether, telling INSIDE EDITION in a statement: "Beginning this Thursday, we will be moving in a different direction with some elements of our Thursday Night Football open." CBS said its decision had nothing to do with Rihanna's expletive-laced rant.
Meanwhile, a shocking report claims that Minnesota Vikings superstar Adrian Peterson, who has already apologized for whipping one four-year-old son with a switch, made from a tree branch, allegledy injured yet another four-year-old son a year ago. He denies all allegations of child abuse.
In a photo, the other son was reportedly returned to his mother's home with cuts on his head and over his right eye after a visitation with his father.
The mother texted Peterson: "What happened to his head?"
Peterson replied: "Hit his head on the car seat.”
But the mother wasn't buying it, texting, "How does that happen, he got a whoopin in the car.”
"Yep," replied Peterson, "I felt so bad. But he did it his self."
Peterson's lawyer denies the latest allegations, saying, "Adrian did nothing inappropriate with his son."
The mother called Child Protection Services but Peterson was never charged.
And now a fury is erupting because the star running back, the father of seven out-of-wedlock children, has been cleared to play in this Sunday’s game.
ESPN’s Keith Olbermann is outraged, saying, "I will not argue with you if you think Vikings management is palpably insane."
INSIDE EDITION spoke to the three judges on the new syndicated TV court show, Hot Bench. They believe that their could be something good coming from all of the drama.
Judge Patricia DiMango said, "There is always something good that comes out of something bad. What is good about this is that the public, the world, starts to say, 'Hey, what are we doing? What are we doing with these people?'"

On Tuesday, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton issued a statement calling on the Vikings to suspend Adrian Peterson until the child abuse allegations have been resolved by the criminal justice system.
