FOX News Achors Mock Ray Rice’s Wife After Domestic Abuse: “The message is, take the stairs”
FOX News has slipped up once again, saying something they shouldn't have. This time is in reference to the Ray Rice fiasco that shook up the sports world today after video footage was released of his abuse on his wife, Janay Palmer.The release of the video has led to the Baltimore Ravens terminating Rice's multi-million dollar contract.
Via Think Progress reports:
New footage of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his fiancee out cold in an elevator was released this morning by TMZ. The video shows Rice leveling Janay Palmer, and then casually dragging her limp body out of the elevator.
Responding to the video, Fox host Brian Kilmeade on Monday blasted the victims of domestic violence, criticizing Palmer (now Janay Rice) and other women who don’t break up with their partner after a domestic violence incident, saying they send a “terrible message.”
Kilmeade then proceeded to provide mocking advice to Palmer, quipping, “I think the message is, take the stairs.” Co-host Steve Doocey gamely joined in, “The message is, when you’re in an elevator, there’s a camera.”
