Rick Ross Show In Ottawa, Canada Cancelled Due To Student Boycott [Update: Multiple Schools Boycotted]

The controversy surrounding Rozay continues.

As reported by AllHipHop, a Rick Ross show that was scheduled to take place at Ottawa, Canada's Ernst & Young Centre this evening has been cancelled due to protests from students at the University of Ottawa. This is the latest development in a string of protests spurred by Ross' now infamous line from Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O" track: 

"Put molly all in the champagne, she don’t even know it / Took her home and I enjoyed that - she ain't even know it." 

Although the MMG boss has attempted to apologize for the line, his statement has had little effect. Protests have taken place at educational institutions (including Harvard) and Reebok stores (Ross in currently under contract with Reebok).

According to the show promoter, Urban Jamz Ent., the Ottawa show was officially cancelled because of “security concerns” stemming from a boycott of the performance by the Student Federation at the university. “He wasn’t an artist the SFUO could support,” said Ethan Plato, the federation’s president.

How're we all feeling about Rozay at this point? 

Stay tuned for inevitable updates, and listen to the track below. 

[Update: Multiple Schools Boycotted]

The University of Ottawa wasn't the only school that boycotted the Rick Ross show last night - Carleton University did so as well. Here's the official statement from their Students' Association:

"The Carleton University Students’ Association is hereby informing our membership and the greater community that as previously indicated, we have worked hard to negotiate and reach a settlement with the organizers of the upcoming Rick Ross concert.

As such, CUSA has completely pulled its support from the show and will be reimbursing all of the students who have purchased their tickets from the association starting as early as Monday, April 8th. No more tickets will be sold through the association here on.

We would like to emphasize that this decision was made collaboratively in conversation with different parties involved. The respectful dialogue included the organizers, the executive team and most importantly our students."
