The controversy surrounding Rozay continues.
As reported by AllHipHop, a Rick RossÂ show that was scheduledÂ to take place atÂ Ottawa, Canada'sÂ Ernst & Young CentreÂ this eveningÂ has beenÂ cancelledÂ due to protests fromÂ students at the University of Ottawa. This is the latest developmentÂ in a string of protestsÂ spurred by Ross'Â now infamousÂ line from Rocko'sÂ "U.O.E.N.O"Â track:Â
"Put molly all in the champagne, sheÂ donât even know it /Â Took her home and I enjoyed that -Â she ain't even know it."Â
Although the MMG bossÂ hasÂ attempted to apologize for the line, his statement has had little effect.Â ProtestsÂ haveÂ takenÂ placeÂ atÂ educationalÂ institutions (includingÂ Harvard)Â and Reebok stores (Ross in currentlyÂ under contract with Reebok).
According to theÂ showÂ promoter, Urban Jamz Ent., the Ottawa show was officially cancelled because ofÂ âsecurity concernsâ stemming fromÂ a boycott of the performanceÂ by theÂ Student Federation at the university.Â âHe wasnât an artist the SFUO could support,â said Ethan Plato, the federationâs president.
How're we allÂ feeling about RozayÂ at this point?Â

"The Carleton University Studentsâ 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."
