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

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.
