Popular rapper Rick Ross, in Rocko's song U.O.E.N.O. (You Don't Even Know It), bragged that he "put molly all in her champagne, she ain't even know it, I took her home & enjoyed that, she ain't even know it". Molly is a type of drug. If what he is saying is true, not just meaningless lyrics he has just publicly admitted to drugging and raping a woman. This should be investigated further and he should be prosecuted. If it is not true and they are just lyrics, he has still just glorified rape and this should not be ignored. Change doesn't come from being outraged about big cases like the Steubenville rape trial. The dominant rape culture today has come from people ignoring and even glorifying statements like this because the song sounds good in the club. You don't have to be a feminist to support this, but roofy-ing and rape are very serious and shockingly common problems, so if you are not comfortable with them, then please sign this to ensure that some sort of action is taken and RIck Ross is held responsible.

Publicly apologize for glorifying 'date rape'. It is scary and offensive that you can normalize this in a song and you're a much better artist than that. We respect your freedom of expression, but at the same time we are exercising our freedom of speech in expressing our disappointment at your choice of lyrics.
You are influential. People will listen to your songs and try to live how you live. Yes, even adults are impressionable. Please denounce this blatant promotion of drugging and rape. It has happened too often and to too many people, even people we know to be seen as acceptable.
