NFL players, media members react to new Ray Rice video on Twitter

Publish date:

On Monday morning, a video of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Ricepunching his then-fiancéeJanay Palmer in an Atlantic City casino elevator in February was published by TMZ.

Rice had previously been suspended two games by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after he was charged with third-degree aggravated assault. Rice was accepted into a pretrial diversion program that will allow the charges to be dropped upon completion.

Since handing Rice the two-game ban, Goodell has changed the NFL's policy for domestic violence offenders. Under the new policy, a first-time violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy -- regarding assault, battery, domestic violence or sexual assault that involves physical force -- will result in a six-game suspension. A second offense will result in a lifetime ban from the NFL.​

Current and former NFL players, media members and other NFL figures have taken to Twitter to post their reaction to the new video. Warning: NSFW language below.​
