|Pepsi drops rapper Weezy over Emmett Till lynching as compared with sex act lyric |
Meanwhile, Pepsi let Wayne follow he needed inked a proposal to push Mountain Dew. An enterprise statement remarked that the "offensive mention of a revered civil rights icon would not reflect the of [Pepsi's] brand.
Regardless, before Pepsi dropped rapper Lil Wayne for singing offensive lyrics, Reebok did the equivalent with rapper Rick Ross who had released words about raping a lady who was simply unwillingly and unwittingly drugged. Artistic freedom spot, apparently, but being able to express whatever is discouraging you may not be the goal for individuals that sign anyone to represent their products in the role of example.
