Rape Survivors

Want Reebok to Deliver

Rick Ross' Head

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.

So Ross has to drug women to get them to have sex with him? Sounds accurate.

An another note : I just read that line and was absolutely disgusted. I don't get how someone can even rap that and think they're cool. "I have to drug women to get them to have sex with me" I mean really? The entire song U.O.E.N.O. (sound it out -- You Won't Even Know) is practically about rape too. How can people even defend that? It's sickening. These artists swear that they have no levy over young children but the fact is that they do, more so through their music than anything else. Get ready to hear 13 year olds rapping along to this bull****.

Doesn't Reebok make running & cross-training shoes? The only thing fat boy Ricky is cross-training for is snacking on Ding-Dongs & Ho-Hos. Ricky has never missed a meal in his life. You could go bowling with his fat head.

I just gotta ask...HOW THE HECK IS RICK ROSS OF ALL PEOPLE A ENDORSEMENT FOR ANYTHING ATHELETIC IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! Hello this man is in no type of ATHELETIC shape and walks (BARELY, more like wabbles) around with bigger breast than most women and he is endorsed by Reebok. That is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. HEY REEBOK, CAN I GET A DEAL??? I don't condone rape much less do I like his music but as a woman you would need more than a molly for anyone ever to have sex with him. EEEWWWW

It's all Entertainment Thats it ! If it's really that serious they should have been picketing Hollywood for years for creating movies with rape scenes in them. Besides he is not the first artist in any genre of music to insinuate rape in a song. What about rock and roll artist who have done the same thing before Ross? Besides, when you're rich you don't have to rape a woman regardless of what you look like.

So all you Fuxking people and women complaining about his verse need some little education and something to do with your lives. First of all, a Molly won't make you pass out and forget ****(go try one),second most of rap songs glorify the sell of drugs and killings in the hoods mostly populated Blacks and Hispanics. Yet, that isn't a big concern right?? But lets not talk about something that offended the white female that may have been rape by their stepfather right? Groups like UltraViolet are a waste of time with their priorities screwed up...they see a black successful man and want to deprive him from his success....These rappers are considered "artist" for a reason...if any thing that was done here was raise a concern when next time your at a club (ladies)don't take a free drink&stick with your friends...

What people dont understand is that celebs have a huuuuuge responsibility. The children look up to people like this. We need to stop buying there **** and making these talentless evil *******s rich. People like this do not deserve to be in the position he is in, while people everyday are dying and praying for better dayz.
