Rick Ross Date Rape Lyrics Are Creating Headlines

Rick Fraud is in the headlines again. Last time it was for referencing Larry Hoover and claiming Masonic ties n’ such. This time it’s for claiming a date rape in the song “U.O.E.N.O.” Protestors have specifically cited the following 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,”

-Rick Ross

You can read the lyrics to the entire song by clicking here. Ross appeared on a radio program in March and attempted to explain the lyrics. Here’s what he had to say:

If you listen to the entire song  you will notice that Ross also said something to the effect of “I’ll die for my Reeboks.” Well it seems that the anti-sexism group UltraViolet caught wind of that lyric too and their not buying Ross’ explanation. UltraViolet started a petition and organized a protest in front of the Reebok’s store in New York. Footage from that protest below:

“It is a hate crime to be making fun of, making light of drugging and raping women. Something that happens all to often in our culture.”

-Sonia Ossario

The issue was even discussed on ABC’s “The View”. Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd discussed the song lyrics and whether or not they violated any ethical  or moral obligations.

The View : Hot Topics: Reebok and Rick Ross – The View

“I think that Reebok is a trailblazer in terms of having women and strength, their fitness and well being at the forefront of what was going on in fitness and athletics. I have no doubt that they’ll do right by women with whatever happens here. [Ross] is not their only guy. They have Alicia Keys, they have Swizz Beatz. They have a slew of celebrities that are gonna go in there and actually be strong by their brand and also obey their morality clause.”

-Elisabeth Hasselbeck

UltraViolet claims to have 72,000 petitions signed by members from across the nation at WeAreUltraViolet.org asking Reebok to drop their sponsorship of Rick Ross.
