Rick Ross’ apology over lyrics that appeared to endorse date rape do not seem to be having the effect he hoped for. HipHollywood has learned that a concert featuring the rapper has been cancelled because of the controversial song, “U.O.E.N.O.”.
Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada just announced that they are pulling the plug on the show, releasing this statement:
“Due to the protest surrounding Rick Ross latest song ‘U.O.E.N.O.’ the concert Pandemonium scheduled April 9, is now officially cancelled because of security concerns.”
On the track, Ross raps, “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.”
Despite a Twitter apology, a petition is being circulated to have Ross dropped by Reebok, which he has a lucrative endorsement deal with.
