As no surprise Rick Ross has lost his Reebok endorsement deal over his date rape lyrics on Atlanta rapper, Rocko’s new single ‘U.O.E.N.O.’

It was only a matter of time before Reebok would be forced to drop the Mayboch Music leader.  A rep for the company said, “Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand. Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so. 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.”

The rapper did his best to fix the situation and apologized on two occasions. First on New Orleans radio station Q93.3.  He then tweeted an apology before releasing a new video on April 4. “I don’t condone rape. Apologies for the #lyric interpreted as rape.

As previously reported, last Thursday (April 4), the women’s right’s group UltraViolet delivered a petition with more than 71,000 signatures to Reebok’s flagship store in New York, where they protested the rapper’s partnership with the sneaker company.  Looks like their efforts worked.  Get more details on this story, plus hear what Rocko had to say as well.  Listen to Tha Wire below.
