Reebok had been inundated with calls to drop Ross after the release of “U.O.E.N.O.,” which includes the lyric, “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.” (Molly is a slang term for MDMA, a crystalline or powder form of the drug Ecstasy.)

“It’s time for Reebok to stop using their brand as a platform to promote rape and the idea that rape is not just okay, but cool,” Nita Chaudhary, cofounder of women’s rights group UltraViolet, said in a statement today following a protest outside the sportswear brand’s flagship store in New York City.
