The fallout from Rick Ross' date rape lyrics in the song “U.O.E.N.O.” continues. As protesters and rape survivors put pressure on Reebok to drop the rapper, he's also lost money after a recently scheduled show in Ottawa was cancelled because of the song.
Ross was scheduled to perform at the Ernst & Young Centre on Tuesday, however the show's promoter, Urban Jamz Ent., pulled the plug on the concert Friday over "security concerns" according to O.Canada.com.
Student associations at Carleton and the University of Ottawa have collaborated on an end-of-year concert dubbed Pandamonium since 2007. This year they decided not to promote "rape culture" and pulled their support due to Ross' scheduled appearance.
"He wasn’t an artist the SFUO could support," said Ethan Plato, the federation’s president.
The rapper was rumored to have been paid between $100,000 and $250,000 for the show.
