A Call For Reebok To Drop Rick Ross From Their Campaign
A Call For Reebok To Drop Rick Ross From Their Campaign

Hip-hop artist Rick Ross has been under fire for his lyrics which seem to be promoting rape in his new song, “UOENO (You Ain’t Even Know),” where sings about putting Molly (a date rape drug) in a woman’s drink and pleasuring himself without her knowing.

After a large public outrage and media backlash, Rick Ross apologized to his fans and women at large saying he does not support rapeand insisted that it was just a artist expression but it seems women advocacy group didn’t buy his apology.

 As Huffington post reports that women groups took on to the streets of NY and demanded that clothing and sneaker wear brands Reebok drop the rapper from their campaigns.

More than 100 members from the groups organized in front of Reebok’s flagship store in New York City to protest and deliver a petition with 72,000 signatures, urging the athletic apparel company to drop their endorsement with Rick Ross, which was signed last March. According to HiphopWired.

“It’s time for Reebok to stop using their brand as a platform to promote rape and the idea that rape is not just okay, but cool. Contrary to Ross’ claims, there was no misinterpretation here: Slipping a woman a drug and ‘enjoying that’ is rape, plain and simple,” UltraViolet co-founder, Nita Chaudhary said in an issued statement.
 Reebok is yet to comment on the issue.

 Do you think Officer Ross over stepped the line or the world is just too sensitive on his “Artistic expression?”
