It’s More Bad News For Rick Ross – Tha Wire [VIDEO]
Rick Ross has tried to apologize for his rap lyrics in Rocko's new single U.O.E.N.O, but to no avail. A women's rights group wants his head and demanding that Reebok fire him as their spokesperson immediately.
As previously reported, Rick Ross stopped by Q93 in New Orleans and apologized for his lyrics, " Put molly all in her champagne, she ain't even know it. I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain't even know it." FYI, "Molly" is a nickname for a form of MDMA, cited by the FBI as a date-rape drug. His apology didn't go over well. Veteran rapper Talib Kweli called Ross a "Misguided 40-year old".
The Maybach Music Group leader is being pummeled by women's rights group, UltraViolet, who's 71,000 + petition was hand delivered to the NYC headquarters of Reebok in a protest today. UltraViolet co-founder Shaunna Thomas said her organization has rallied against Reebok and Ross because the rapper is so well known. She said:
It’s true that other people have rapped about this subject before. But it’s rare that someone with a following like he has would be so brazen about rapping literally about drugging and raping someone. We saw this as an opportunity to make a comment about rape culture and to give people a way to say, This isn’t cool. As a culture, we need to figure out a way to make sure that we’re not sending the message to boys and men that it’s okay to rape. I think women have had enough.
