As the backlash against Rick Ross’ so-called “rape lyrics” continues to mount, the Miami rapper has tried once again to calm the storm, apologizing to his sponsors and critics for words “interpreted as” rape.

The “apology” comes after pressure from his record label and corporate sponsors, who are facing protests and demonstrations outside of their offices.

Unsurprisingly, many are not impressed or satisfied.

From NewsOne:

Rapper Rick Ross, who has been called out for his rape lyrics in the song “U.O.E.N.O.” by feminists around the country, tweeted a pseudo-apology that’s about as real as his name.

I dont condone rape.Apologies for the interpreted as rape.

“Interpreted as” is not an apology; it is, however, a translucent attempt at damage control to appease his corporate sponsors, as proven by his next tweet:

Apologies to my many business partners,who would never promote violence against women. @ReebokClassics @ultraviolet


In case you forgot, the lyrics in question: “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.”


Are you satisfied with this apology? Was it sincere?

Were Ross’ lyrics “misinterpreted?”
