Evelyn Lozada Speaks Out About Ray Rice, Domestic Violence


Share this Post

Evelyn Lozada definitely isn't a fan of Ray Rice.

Like many other celebrities, the former Basketball Wives star made her sentiments quite clear last week.

For those who missed it, the former Baltimore Raven made headlines when footage surfaced of him knocking his fiancé Janay Rice out in an elevator. Although the altercation initially made headlines back in February, the footage of what occurred inside the elevator didn't surface until Monday, September 8. Immediately after TMZ released the infamous video, the Baltimore Ravens terminated Rice's contract.

Fans and celebrities took to different social media platforms voicing their opinions of Rice's actions. Lozada had absolutely no reservations about voicing her opinion on Twitter.

"That video has me PISSED THE F---OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Lozada tweeted.

However, that wasn't all she had to say! The 38-year-old reality TV also tweeted an indirect statement to Rice's wife, encouraging her to stand against domestic violence.

But, Rice's wife isn't trying to hear what anyone has to say. Although she was the victim in the altercation, she took to Instagram to lash out at the media for scrutinizing her now-husband.

"I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," she wrote on Instagram. "No one knows the pain that the media and unwanted options from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret everyday is a horrible thing."

Rice's actions definitely struck a nerve with Lozada, who has also been a victim of domestic violence at the hands of an NFL player. Back in 2012, Lozada was involved in a highly publicized altercation with her ex-husband, former NFL star Chad Ochocinco.

TMZ also released shocking photos of Lozada's injuries after she was head-butted by the former Miami Dolphin player. Lozada filed for divorce less than two months after the incident occurred. The Latin beauty is now an advocate against domestic violence.
