Amber Rose's SlutWalk



Over the weekend, Amber Rose hosted her SlutWalk in Downtown L.A. In her address, she opened up about her first experience of slut-shaming as a 14-yr-old girl (at 0.27). She also (at 4.55) discussed the lyrics written by Wiz Khalifa, her ex-husband, about her, "I fell in love with a stripper but I fell out of love quicker", tearing up and saying that "all I did was ever love him... and to be told that I was nothing but a stripper, it hurt", which she cites as the motivation to initiate this SlutWalk for other women who had similar experiences.


She ends her speech by forgiving Kanye and Wiz, the latter of whom she said apologised to her, and encourages others to be the "bigger, positive person to forgive and move on and help other people around you who have been through the same thing", despite the continuing pain.





Amber's Mum in response to Kanye's comments, "I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim":


She was also joined by celebrities including Matt McGorry and Michelle Trachtenberg:
