Janay Rice is none too pleased with the Halloween costumes some people are choosing to wear this year, which seem to make a mockery of her husband’s fall from grace.
Her husband, Ray Rice, was cut from the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely from the NFL after a video hit the internet of him knocking his then-fiancée out inside a New Jersey casino elevator.
Photos were posted on social media last week of truly disturbing costume choices that are wrong on so many levels.
People dressed up as the Rices, donning NFL costumes and sporting black eyes, mocking the couple’s Feb. 15 assault incident. One photo, in particular, shows a young boy wearing an NFL costume and black face while dragging a black doll. Another shows a woman sporting a black eye and pretending to be punched by a man wearing football gear.

The Rices aren’t thrilled, to say the least, but they are taking the high road.
“[They’re] praying for those people,” a source told TMZ on Tuesday.

Janay went on to marry the former running back after the assault and has since stuck by her man through thick and thin.

Rice was indicted in March by a grand jury for third-degree aggravated-assault. Janay refused to testify against him, and the charges will likely be dropped if he completes a pre-trial intervention program.
