The lyrics state: "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."

Speaking to New Orleans hip hop radio station Q93.3, Ross said: "Things like date rape shouldn't be glorified, [but]with that being said, I don't think taking rap lyrics as straight facts is ever the way to go… In reality some people do these things, and shouldn't it be brought to light so young women can protect themselves?"

He added: "The term 'rape' wasn't used.

"You know I would never use the term rape in my records… I just wanted to reach out to all the… sexy ladies, all the beautiful ladies that had been reaching out to me with the misunderstanding: we don't condone rape and I'm not with that."

Women's rights group UltraViolet has launched a campaign asking Reebok to drop Ross as a celebrity spokesman. Over 72,000 people have signed UltraViolet's petition.
