RICK ROSS FIRED BY REEBOK

Rick Ross has reportedly
been dumped by Reebok
amid controversy over
his track “U.O.E.N.O.,” which has been
accused of glorifying date rape.
The song contains the 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.”
“Molly” is a slang term for MDMA, better
known as ecstasy.
Under pressure from outraged advocacy
groups , Reebok has now terminated its
endorsement deal with the rapper, according
to TMZ , which quotes the company as
stating:
“ 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. “
As Gossip Cop reported last week, Ross
apologized for the lyrics being “interpreted as
rape” as protests against him intensified.
It appears his contrition was not enough to
save his Reebok deal.
