Comedian Megan MacKay has created a Ray Rice makeup tutorial that is both hilarious and eye-opening. The video is specifically targeted at the NFL, and the disgraceful, unforgivable way they handled Rice's horrifying act of violence.

The subject matter is in good hands with MacKay, a talented comedian who has created videos on similar matters in the past (please see, "Hobby Lobby Makeup Tutorial" or "How to Hunt for a Husband"). The video is filled with MacKay's signature, acerbic wit, although the incident itself is far from funny.

In the tutorial, MacKay applies a full face of makeup while simultaneously making a very powerful social commentary on gender relations, violence and the biases of celebrity.
