This Song Got Rapper Rick Ross Fired By Reebok

Reebok just fired rapper Rick Ross for releasing a new song that happily describes his plans to drug and rape someone.
Here’s the problematic verse (emphasis is ours) from “U.O.E.N.O”:
That n**** sold you that re-rock, you ain’t even know itI die over these Reeboks, you ain’t even know itPut Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know itI took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it
Alluding to date rape right after plugging the shoe company you have an endorsement deal with perhaps isn’t the best way to keep a job.
Here’s the song. The problems start at the 2:05 mark.
