Amber Rose's Emotional Speech Will Make You Rethink Calling Someone A Slut

"Strippers have feelings, too."

The first time Amber Rose was ever slut shamed, or made to feel bad for her sexual choices, was when she was 14. After news spread she had been intimate with a boy at a party, her peers at school ridiculed her. It only got worse from there, with her famous exes putting her down as well. 

Well, Rose isn't taking it anymore.

She led the first ever Amber Rose SlutWalk in L.A. this past weekend to bring attention to slut shaming and the harm it can do. According to the website, "[Amber Rose and team] join the movement on this cause against sexual injustice, victim blaming, derogatory labeling and gender inequality."

Rose walked along with a crowd of women holding signs — hers said "Strippers have feelings too" — before giving a speech. She detailed the experience above but also went into detail about the slut shaming she endured after breaking up with Kanye West. 

"I never put a gun to anyone's head and said make me famous. I didn't date a man to make me famous. I dated a man because that's what my heart told me to do" she stated. "I was called nothing but a stripper I was a gold digger. Apparently he had to take 30 showers after being with me."

She then addressed the lyrics her husband Wiz Khalifa wrote about her after their separation that said "I feel in love with a stripper, but fell out of love quicker."

"That was extremely hurtful," she said, as she begins to tear up. "All I did was ever love him and gave him a beautiful son, and to be told I was nothing but a stripper, it hurt."

"So I decided to have this SlutWalk for women who have been through sh*t."

Then, she took a moment to forgive Kanye West and said that Khalifa had already asked for forgiveness. 

"I'm asking you guys to do the same," she said. "They're ignorant at times, people are ignorant, you have to be the bigger person, the positive person to move and hep other people around you that have been through te same thing.
