As Def Sounds previously reported, women’s rights group UltraViolet will lead a protest outside of Reebok’s flagship store in Manhattan, and deliver 71,000 + petitions, signed thus far, demanding that Reebok drop Rick Ross from his endorsement deal with the company. Now we have footage of the protest which took place outside of the Reebok store in NYC yesterday afternoon.
As reported by Radio.com, a group of women and men gathered at Reebok’s flagship store in New York City to protest the sneaker company’s association with Rick Ross.
Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of Ultra Violet, gave a statement during the protest:
These are 72,000 petitions signed by our members all over the country. They are also comments from people about why they feel Reebok needs to drop Rick Ross over his recent lyrics about drugging and raping a girl.
