Rape Survivors

Want Reebok to Deliver

Reebok supports date rape by supporting Rick Ross ... that's the way a leading women's group and scores of rape survivors see it.

UltraViolet -- a women's rights group 400,000 strong -- is incensed the company​ is not dumping Ross in the wake of his new song, which fantasizes about date rape.

The song -- "U.O.E.N.O."  -- has a line, "Put Molly all in the champagne.  She ain't even know it.  I took her home and I enjoy that.  She ain't even know it."

Molly is slang for Ecstasy.

The group -- along with 150 rape survivors -- grouses, "Every single day that Reebok continues rewarding Rick Ross with a lucrative endorsement deal, Reebok is condoning rape."

We reached out to Reebok today, but we got crickets.

As for Ross ... he issued a lukewarm apology, saying the lyrics were misunderstood and he never used the word rape.

Sometimes you don't have to use the word, when the thought is clear.

It's not even the real Rick Ross. This guy just used the name of a famous drug lord to push his music.

Not just rape survivors but everyone who is a sentient human being. Rape disgusts everyone. Rick Ross is a moron. Reebok should take a big hit for this.

I'm not a fan of rick ross and his b.s. music but I can tell you reebok does not condone rape. It's stupid to think they would. Instead of interfering with reebok, the women's group should go after the people who helped him make his music.

These companies only care about making money and selling their product to gangsters. They could care less what their consumers think.

TMZ get your facts straight MOLLY is not a form of Ecstasy it is bastardized combination of many different lethal drugs...get it right. Researchers need to actually research.

Rick, Of course you didn't mean it. yeah when we regular folks figure out what your stupid lyrics mean, then you distance yourself by making weak excuses. You can be as stupid as you want and as disgusting as you want with your lyricas, but if you want mainstream endorsements clean up your act. REEBOK should dump your ass immediately. Maybe someday these moron rappers will learn how to behave but i doubt it... They want the money and when they get it they think they are above the rules....

Some of these rappers have daughters. I never understood the seemingly 'hate' language used towards women. They wouldn't want anyone speaking to/about their little girls the way they do, no matter what age the female is. They love women but it seems as though they hate them as well..

I doubt Reebok will miss the millions they make from rape victims buying their products. Also, I'm pretty sure that boycotting a shoe company won't stop a rapist from, well raping.

i'm black, i like hip hop and rap but this guy is a no talent loser. he stole the name rick ross from a famous drug dealer, and thus became famous as a rapper until 50 cents posted pictures of him when he used to be a prison guard. He's a fake and phoney. He can't rap, Hip Hops more about smokin weed...gin and juice fun vibez. Ricks about cocaine, rape, and voilence to horrible horrible auto tune. Rick Ross is straight sh**t music. Love hip hop, hate his entire craptastic collection
