The first indication that Evelyn Lozada was really ticked off about the leaked video of Ray Rice beating his then fiancée Janay Rice in an elevator was with a tweet.

"That video has me PISSED THE F*** OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!," wrote Lozada on Tuesday, a day after TMZ released the video of Rice knocking out the woman he would marry the day after he was indicted by a grand jury on third-degree aggravated assault for allegedly striking his fiancée.

The video shows the brutal punch that left Janay unconscious on the elevator floor back in February and has led to Ray's release from his Ravens contract and an indefinite suspension from the NFL, effectively ending his football career.

Lozada has reason to be angry and to speak up for Janay. In 2012, Evelyn Lozada was the alleged victim of domestic violence from then husband Chad Johnson of the Miami Dolphins. Johnson was charged with spousal battery and Lozada filed for divorce, just a few weeks after their highly-anticipated wedding.

Unlike Janay, who has bashed the media for ruining her husband's career and is sticking by her man, Evelyn got the hell out of dodge despite Johnson's public apology.

To this day, Johnson claims he never abused his wife and her injuries came as a result of her head-butting him during an argument.

The video — and the repercussions — is certainly a hot topic around the world. It seems there are few, including President Barack Obama, who have not publicly condemned Ray's actions.

“The President is the father of two daughters. And like any American, he believes that domestic violence is contemptible and unacceptable in a civilized society," said a White House statement. "Hitting a woman is not something a real man does, and that’s true whether or not an act of violence happens in the public eye, or, far too often, behind closed doors. Stopping domestic violence is something that’s bigger than football – and all of us have a responsibility to put a stop to it.”
