Let this be a lesson to all the rappers out there…these major corporations will not tolerate your antics! Following in the steps of Reebok, Mountain Dew has canned there rapping spokesperson due to offensive lyrics as well.
Lil Wayne has been apart of the Mountain Dew family for well over a year now, but none of that matters anymore. After rapping, “Beat that p***y up like Emmett Till” on the song “Karate Chop”, then giving the Till family a half-a**ed apology, Mountain Dew has decided to part ways with Weezy.
The PepsiCo brand stated that Lil Wayne’s, “offensive reference to a revered civil rights icon does not reflect the values of our brand.”
So far, Wayne has not commented on the Dew dismissal but we’re sure he’s not very happy about it. Do you think Mountain Dew did the right thing?
