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.
