Ross Will Lose Between $3.5 Million and $5 Million
For those who may be unfamiliar with the story, here it is. Ross was accused of encouraging date rape in his lyrics on a song called. U.E.O.N.O. The inflammatory lyrics in question were “Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne. She ain’t even know it. I took her home and I enjoy that. She ain’t even know it.” Since the release of the song Reebok has been under mounting pressure to dissasociate themselves with Ross.
TMZ claims to have a source that has informed them that Ross will lose between $3.5 million and $5 million after being dropped. He was allegedly receiving a check each time he wore Reebok footware.
Ross issued an apology to Reebok suggesting that his lyrics were actually misinterpreted. But that apology was not widely well received. In fact it was more likely embarassing for Reebok, which continued to take heat on social networks like Twitter.
TMZ says that Ross is telling people he should be forgiven because he did so much to promote the Reebok brand. A few people have taken to the comment sections of the blogs to clown Rick Ross, for example:
Rick Ross maybe you’ll like my rap:
I put dumbass on my forehead.
I ain’t even know it.
I am a big dumbass. I ain’t even know it.”
Nomo money comin home, I’m a dumbass, I ain’t even know it.
