Rihanna was pissed that CBS cut her performance from “Thursday Night Football” because of her link to a domestic violence incident and rightly so. But the network took an even more vindictive turn by banning her. Rihanna had taped an introductory performance for the game, but CBS decided at the last minute to cut it, because of the Ray Rice domestic violence incident.
