Reebox Releases Rick Ross From Endorsement Deal...??

Soo talk about being in the hot seat! News has just surfaced that Reebox has severed ties with the Miami rapper for his lyrics on the song U.E.O.N.O. in which he stated "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." Angry protesters have been voicing their disgust with Reebok's decision to endorse a man who they feel condones rape against women. They have signed petitions and took the liberty to flood twitter resulting in the termination off Rozay's contract.

Women's activist group Ultraviolet chose to take a stand in Manhattan in front of a Reebox store on April 4th demanding that Reebox to immediate action. After the heavy public pressure Reebox's hand was forced and Ross ain't even know it.(lol) 

Ultraviolet Protesters in Manhattan
Ultraviolet pleased with Reebox's decision gave this response:
"We are thrilled to hear that Reebok is joining the fight against rape culture and dropping Rick Ross," the group said Thursday. "....This sends a strong message that rapping about drugging and raping an unconscious woman is not only morally wrong, but has real consequences. ...Thank you Reebok for taking a stand."
