Rape Victims Demand "Reebok Drop Rick Ross for Bragging About Drugging and Raping"

Rick Ross insists the words spit on "U.O.E.N.O." ("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") don't have anything at all to do with drugging a woman till she passes out so he can have sex with her.

But UltraViolet, "a community... fighting to expand women's rights and combat sexism everywhere," isn't buying the Bawse's bullshit.

In fact, the organization's demanding "Reebok drop Rick Ross for bragging about drugging and raping a woman and for his subsequent non-apologies blaming everyone but himself for the controversy."

UPDATE Rick Ross's rape lyrics are getting dropped from Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O."

UPDATE #2 Rick Ross's Reebok endorsement deal has been killed over the "U.O.E.N.O." rape lyrics.

UPDATE #3 After two weak attempts, Rick Ross has finally, truly apologized for apologized for his "U.O.E.N.O." rape lyrics.

Rape Victims Demand "Reebok Drop Rick Ross for Bragging About Drugging and Raping"

Last week, the activist group launched a "Reebok: Drop Rick Ross" petition, collecting "51,000 signatures... [from] moms, young athletes, and members of UltraViolet... in less than 15 hours after going live."

Outraged at Ross' molly sex assault verse, UltraViolet cofounder Nita Chaudhary wrote: "Reebok devotes a lot of time, energy and money to marketing to women -- and now they are paying a man who is literally bragging about raping us while absurdly insisting it can't possibly be rape if he doesn't use the word 'rape.'

"Reebok is apparently OK promoting rape culture, but when 1 out of 5 women are the victim of an attempted or completed rape, that has consequences."

And now hundreds of rape victims are joining UltraViolet's latest campaign against the Bawse.

"More than 150 survivors of sexual assault have launched an open letter to Reebok," today's news release from the protest group reads.

 

"As a survivor of rape," the letter's author Wagatwe Wanjuke writes, "I'm appalled with Reebok's use of their brand to promote rape and I am fed up with being told what counts or does not count as rape by both Reebok and Rick Ross."

On top of the original petition and the new open letter, UltraViolet is also coordinating an all-out spam attack, "a combined phone, twitter, and online ad push targeting the company with upwards of 10,000 calls into Reebok, with over 8,500 already made, mobilizing on Twitter with tweets to @Reebok, with more than 2,000 already sent, and a Facebook ad and comment campaign targeting Reebok customers."

But really...

Who woulda thought Ross' weak-ass Twitter apology would fail to appease thousands of UltraViolet soldiers?
