  • 50 Cent and Reebok Under Fire From O'Reilly

    Bill O'Reilly is at it again, this time with 50 Cent and Reebok as the target for his venom on his O'Reilly Factor show.

    Yesterday, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly took a shot at Reebok International for its affiliation with 50 Cent, calling the relationship "corporate pollution." Recently, the multi-platinum rapper inked an endorsement deal with Reebok for his G-Unit sneakers, which is a top-seller for the sneaker giant since it's launch in November 2003.

    "Reebok should be ashamed of themselves," O'Reilly told the Boston Herald before his show last night. "They're embracing a guy who's hurting children."

    The cable news king even got The Congress of Racial Equality on the show to identify what it considers the five worst rappers and their corporate ties. 50 Cent and Reebok came in at No. 3.

    When the cable news king talks, corporate America listens. It was Reilly's wrangling of Pepsi that resulted in the soda giant dumping Ludacris as a spokesperson in 2003. And earlier this month, O'Reilly threatened to give Anheuser-Busch the gas face if they hired Luda as a pitchman for the beer.

    So far, Reebok is standing by the Queens-born rapper, who donates 50 cents to charity for each pair of G-Unit shoes sold. The sell-through rate on the G-Unit signature sneaker is one of the best ever for a Reebok product in Foot Locker stores.

    "We enjoy working with 50 Cent and recognize the excitement he brings to our brand," Reebok said in a statement.

    Still, O'Reilly is convinced Reebok should sever ties with 50 Cent citing the rapper's negative lyrics as a decay to America's kids.

    "It's a horrible influence on children," he said. "It's desensitizing them. Ten-year-old little boys are calling 10-year-old little girls `beeyatches' and `hos.'"

    Reebok commented that it doesn't condone every action of its hundreds of athletic and entertainment endorsers, but it does support their rights to free expression.
