After the release of the disturbing video of Ray Rice repeatedly punching his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City casino elevator, the NFL took to Twitter with an immediate and harsh condemnation of Ray Rice and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

I’m glad no one this morning seems to care about yesterday’s games. This piece of shit needs to be out of the league. Period.— Scott Fujita (@sfujita55) September 8, 2014

Looks like the Ravens’ strategy of “MOVE ALONG FOLKS, RAY RICE’S WIFE IS SORRY SHE GOT BEATEN” might not have been the best choice.— Cassandra (@ChrisWarcraft) September 8, 2014

No audio is needed…it’s blatantly wrong and sickening. And there’s no way you can defend those actions.— Duke Ihenacho (@NachoLyfe) September 8, 2014
The NFL should have zero tolerance for domestic violence. There is never a reason for any man to be violent towards any woman.— Chris Harris (@ChrisHarrisJr) September 8, 2014
