Joe Biden: ‘Brutal’ video doomed Ray Rice [VIDEO]:
Vice President Joe Biden is speaking out on the Ray Rice issue, saying the Baltimore Ravens “did the right thing” by releasing the running back and that female fans pressured the National Football League into action.
“So, you know the first reason the NFL responded to my view: There are so many women fans in this billion-dollar industry,” the vice president told Tamron Hall of NBC News. “So all of a sudden they said, ‘Wait a minute, he got suspended for a couple games? Whoa, that’s not enough.’ Then, they get a little more sensitized. And then it was longer.”
“And then when the video was out there, and saw how brutal it was, the Ravens did the right thing — fired him immediately,” he continued. “Now, you can argue they should have done it sooner, they didn’t want it. Whatever the reason is, it’s happening.”
