Rihanna is not pleased with CBS.

After shocking video emerged of NFL player Ray Rice knocking his wife out cold and dragging her out of an elevator by her feet, the NFL suspended him and CBS decided to pull Ri's song "Run This Town" from their Thursday night football pregame show.

The network felt that using a performance from an artist who faced domestic abuse herself by Chris Brown would be in poor taste given the recent incidents.

This week, CBS apparently felt that the dust has settled and it would be okay to use Riri's song again. But the singer isn't having it.

"CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F**k you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this," she first Tweeted, before adding: "The audacity."

In other words, this is how Rihanna feels about CBS:

There's been no response from the network so far, but we agree that it seems hypocritical and unfair to pull her song one week because she's been a victim herself then suddenly pretend everything's fine.

Are you on Team Rihanna or do you think CBS was trying to be sensitive?
