“Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets. As an artist, one of the most liberating things is being able to paint pictures with my words. But with that comes a great responsibility. And most recently, my choice of words was not only offensive, it does not reflect my true heart. And for this, I apologize.
To every woman that has felt the sting of abuse, I apologize. I recognize that as an artist I have a voice and with that, the power of influence. To the young men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it. To my fans, I also apologize if I have disappointed you. I can only hope that this sparks a healthy dialogue and that I can contribute to it.
I want to thank Reebok Classics for their hard work and dedication over this past year.Good partners,good shoe.continued success.”

Since Rocko dropped his U.O.E.N.O. single featuring Rick Ross; people have been talking about it, but not in a good way because of this line:
“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.” Translation — date rape.
After a ton of media attention, protests and calls for Reebok to drop Rick Ross; they finally did it.
Reebok released this statement: “Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand. Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so.”
Reebok went on saying: “While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse.”
Rocko said in an interview with radio station Hot 97 on Wednesday that he his removing Ross’ rap from his song. He said the backlash has “put him a position where I have to change” the song.
UltraViolet, the organization instrumental in the call for action, said in a statement Thursday that the group is “thrilled to hear that Reebok is joining the fight against rape culture and dropping Rick Ross.”
