(CNN) — Janay Rice, wife of suspended NFL player Ray Rice who was released by the Baltimore Ravens, apparently posted a statement Tuesday on Instagram calling the situation a “nightmare.”
“To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass off for all his life just to gain ratings is a horrific (sic),” she wrote.
The actions against Ray Rice were taken Monday after a video surfaced showing him knocking her out with a punch in February.
The Instagram post, reported by various media, appeared to be authentic.
