Ray Rice Publicly Apologizes to His Wife Janay After Domestic Violence Attack (Video)

Ray Rice appeared on the Today show today with his wife Janay Rice by his side to explain his domestic violence attack against her earlier this year.

“I made a horrendous mistake not apologizing to my wife,” the 27-year-old former NFL running back said during the interview. “This is something, you know, as a man you have to own. I’m horribly sorry for everything that I have to put my family through.”

“I think it was her … trying to take light off the situation,” Ray added about hearing his wife take some responsibility for the incident in her own personal interview the day before. “I appreciated it, but that’s not what the big deal is. The big deal is for me to always protect her, and that’s why I said I take full responsibility.”

Ray hopes to help those who are victims of domestic violence. “Domestic violence is a real issue in society. We could take our one bad night, it just happened to be on video, but we are truly sorry to the people that are really going through it. It’s a real problem. And I know when the time is right, I know my wife wants to help, I know I want to help.”

    Why is he apologizing now after months from the leak, a trial and appeal and his wife saying it’s all her fault. SO DUMB. Guess no one is signing him up.

    “to explain his domestic violence attack against her earlier this year” Either the writer is an *sshole or Ray Rice is, how exactly do you justify or “explain” what he did.
