A big black eye: See the viral photo that everyone is talking about

A big black eye: See the viral photo that everyone is talking about
Cover Girl

I am repeatedly amazed at what power the Internet can give public opinions and causes. Now, public disgust and disappointment with the NFL's response to players' domestic violence charges is boiling over with some dramatic viral images.

Users have photoshopped an ad campaign aimed at getting NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to either resign or be fired.

We've seen Internet anger directed at the NFL's commissioner before, and we've seen plenty of Photoshop fails, but we've never seen it like this.

The "Game Face" ad campaign by CoverGirl features women in their favorite team's jerseys, complete with outrageous and flashy eye makeup coinciding with their team's colors.

The idea is that Arizona Cardinals fans can paint their faces like a cardinal, Steelers fans can sport their famous black and yellow, and so on.

Sound fun and full of team spirit?

Well ...

It turns out, the Baltimore Ravens' colors are the same colors as a black eye - purple and black. With the ongoing Ray Rice saga, the Internet wasn't about to let that go.

For those who don't know, let me fill you in. Weeks ago, videotape leaked by TMZ shows then-Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his wife in the face in an elevator.

Since the tape went mainstream, it's been a big mess for the NFL to say the least. The Ravens have since fired Rice and the NFL has been under serious scrutiny and is now the subject of several investigations, as well as an ongoing discussion about domestic violence.

Note: Some might find the images on the next page disturbing.
