The lyric, “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,” has set off a firestorm of controversy resulting in open letters from activists, yet no word from the rapper. The song is actually Rocko’s featuring singer/rapper Future.

The new Change.org petition calls for Rick Ross to publicly apologize for the lyric and for glorifying rape and violence against women. Created 6 days ago, the petition has garnered hundreds of signatures.

The timing of the lyric is hot on the heels of the date rape conviction of two teens in Stubenville, Ohio and the recent passage of The Violence Against Women Act which has added to its inflammatory nature.

Activist Rosa Clemente has also made a video responding to the Def Jam signed Ross for the lyric, which she states is “detrimental to our community.”
