Boycott Def Jam Artist Lil Reese: Def Jam should not support any artist who abuses women.

    1. Petition by

Domestic Violence should NOT represent the Hip Hop culture. Def Jam should be ashamed of itself for allowing Lil Reese to portray himself as an artist when he knows very little about being a man. He has no remorse for his actions committed over a year ago, and glorifies his actions by refusing to apologize for his mistakes. Doing so via twitter does not solidify to the public of what kind of compassion this young man "attempted" to portray.

      It is disgusting that it is acceptable for an animal to be highly regarded in Hollywood, such as chief keef or lil reese. They are no better than any thug on the street and nned to pay for their crimes. Its sad that they get covenance just because they make crappy music and get well paid for it. The people involved with signing them to a record label and those involved in making their career happen should be ashamed of themselves.

      I don't like how he would beat the poor girl like that. And plus he said he was going to kill lil jojo that day, which happened later on that day. They're cold hearted thugs and its a bad look to hip hop. All they rap about is violence. Killing, drugs, sex, etc.
