(AllHipHop News) Public anger and controversy surrounding Rick Ross’ rape lyrics continues to mount today (April 3) as the women’s rights group UltraViolet has announced they will lead a protest outside of Reebok’s flagship store in Manhattan tomorrow (April 4).
UltraViolet members are planning to deliver 71,763+ petitions to the company’s flagship store demanding the company fire the Maybach Music Group leader.
“We are appalled that Reebok would pay a spokesperson who brags about enjoying drugging and raping a woman,” said Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of UltraViolet. “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.”
