Ray Rice Apologizes To His Wife Publicly For Elevator Abuse In Atlantic City
Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice publicly apologized to his wife today and said she can “do no wrong,” just months after he allegedly struck his then-fiancee and was caught on video dragging her from an Atlantic City elevator.
It was the first time the running back answered questions about the Feb. 15 incident, which earned him a two-game suspension from the NFL.
“What happened that night is something that never should have happened,” Rice, 27, said.
He called the violent incident his “lowest low” and expressed concern his 2-year-old daughter with wife Janay Palmer would one day learn about her dad’s mistake on Google.
“It hurts because I can’t go out there and play football, but it hurts more because I have to be a father and explain what happened to my daughter,” he said.
Rice declined to say what triggered the incident, saying he just wants to move forward with his family.
“My actions that night were totally inexcusable,” he said.
Rice called his wife an “angel” and said he let her, her parents, his teammates and the entire Baltimore community down.
He also brought up his mother.
“I know that’s not who I am as a man,” Rice said. “That’s not who my mom raised me to be. If anyone knows me they know I was raised by a single parent and that was my mother.”
He also said that “when the time is right,” he and Palmer want to help other couples affected by domestic abuse. Rice called the violent fight a “one-time incident.”
Uh, ok, thanks bruh. SMH.
