Reebok Dumps Rick Ross Over Rape Lyrics
You don't have to say the word "rape" to sound like a rapist, Rick Ross. Reebok has cut off ties with the Florida emcee after his lyrics about date rape on the song "U.O.E.N.O." caused an uproar among women's rights groups, politicians, and radio stations who refused to play the song. "Put molly all in the champagne," he raps in his guest verse on the Rocko song. "She ain't even know it. /I took her home and I enjoy that / She ain't even know it." Though Ross isssed a feeble apology, saying that the lyrics were misunderstood and that he never mentioned the word "rape," Reebok dropped the rapper anyway. "While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse,” read a statement from Reebok.
