Rick Ross tries an apology for pro-rape song; denies it's a pro-rape song; fails to apologise

Here's Rick Ross, then, saying sorry for... well, for what, exactly, Rick?

You'll note that Ross isn't apologising for writing a lyric about rape, but for the interpretation of a lyric as being about rape.

Let's take a look at the lyric, shall we?
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.
This is from Ross' UOENO. So, he drugged a woman, kidnapped her, and in some way "enjoyed" her. But that's not rape, unless, hey, you choose to interpret it that way.

Ross has tried to explain it to us thickies before, during an interview on Q93:
The rapper said he had been misunderstood, pointing out “the word rape wasn’t used.”
Hey, why didn't you say so before? Clearly, if you drug someone and fuck them without their consent, there's not a territory on the planet that would define that as rape, unless the bragging rapist actually used the word "rape" at some point.

It's hard to even understand why Ross is apologising for writing a song about raping someone which people are unfairly interpreting as being about rape when it doesn't even have the word rape in at.

Who, Rick, who are the real victims here?:

I wouldn't worry Rick. Sure, a lot of people might call for your sponsors to sever all ties with you, but I'm sure nobody will use the word "boycott".
