Is the world being too harsh on disgraced ex-NFL star Ray Rice? Mo’Nique seems to think so.
She appeared on Good Day L.A. this week and was asked what she thought of the Rice situation, and surprisingly she supports him.
“A lot of people are saying get rid of him, it was horrible what he did and it was. It was tragic for us to see that happen to that young woman… there’s no excuse for that. On the other side of it, there’s the beauty in it because you see this woman saying I’m going to stand by my husband.”
“The world saw him at his worst moment…I’ve been there to have my worst moments. There was a time I wanted to say domestic violence. There was a time I did say it. But the truth was we would just fight. And if I would lose, now I’m gonna call the police it’s domestic violence. But if I won, we just had a fight.”
She also preached about forgiveness.
“We speak of religion, and we speak of forgiveness but the moment someone messes up we say throw them away and get rid of them…they have to face the world every day…every action that we do is forgivable.”
In another clip, she continued defending her stance:
When you see a family and there’s a child involved and you know that something’s wrong and something’s going on, why not be the community — really? Why not be the village?
This is the question I would have: When does forgiveness ever send the wrong message? What time frame do you put on forgiveness?
Mo’ had a LOT to say about the situation. Get into the clips below.
