When Reebok dropped Rick Ross over his alleged rape lyrics, they made tons of protestors happy but upset Slim Thug in the process.

Not that Slim has anything to do with Reebok, or Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O.," but the Houston native still has a bone to pick.

Taking to Twitter Thursday (April 11), Slim feverishly defended his one-time enemy in rhyme via a series of now deleted tweets. He remarked that the "haters won" when Reebok gave Ross the boot and wondered why protestors are choosey about which lyrics they attack. "So why they don't protest Eminem for all that crazy s--t he be saying???"

Slim also took the time to educate the masses on "Molly" use, discrediting Ross' "U.O.E.N.O." lyrics where he paints the drug as a date rape sedative. "Every b---h I been with on Molly try to rape me and after that they up all night after I pass out," Slim tweeted.

After a couple weeks of protests, Reebok caved to ongoing pressure from women's rights groups like UltraViolet and gave the rapper his walking papers. In response, UltraViolet released a statement expressing their excitement over the new development.

"We are thrilled to hear that Reebok is joining the fight against rape culture and dropping Rick Ross," the organization said in a statement. "This is a huge victory for women, for the 526 survivors of rape who were brave enough to publicly confront rape culture and for the nearly 100,000 UltraViolet members who have poured their hearts and time into this campaign.

"This sends a strong message that rapping about drugging and raping an unconscious woman is not only morally wrong, but has real consequences. After Steubenville, Americans expect and demand better. Thank you Reebok for taking a stand.”

Ross hasn't commented on getting fired, but his Maybach Music artist Meek Mill called Reebok "corny" after their decision to let Rozay go.
