In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight Amber Rose discussed the motivation behind her upcoming SlutWalk in Los Angeles. After her ex, Kanye West, stated in an interview that he had to take 30 showers after dating her, to date Kim Kardashian, Rose said she couldn’t understand why he would attempt to slut shame her.
“We were happy when we were together! And now all of the sudden, I’m getting slut-shamed because we’re not together anymore, and it’s not fair,” Rose stated.
Rose then decided to make it her mission to take a stand against slut shaming for all women.
“I deal with it every day. I deal with it via social media. People out on the street. They don’t quite understand why I post what I post and how I speak on social media,” Rose said, adding that slut shaming hurts all women. “I’m sick of it, and I’m here for my girls, and we’re gonna do the #AmberRoseSlutWalk this summer and it’s gonna be awesome.”
The first SlutWalk, which was held in Toronto, was attended by thousands of women. Rose hopes that her SlutWalk, if successful, can be extended to New York City as well.
