Amber Rose Says She Forgives Kanye And Wiz Khalifa For Slut-Shaming Her

“I decided to have the Slut Walk for women that have been through shit.”

Amber Rose put together a "Slut Walk" in Los Angeles over the weekend to bring attention to slut-shaming. Rose gave an emotional speech during the event. “The first time I ever got slut-shamed I was 14 years old,” she remembered. “I was still a virgin.”

Her inspiration for the Slut Walk came after the end of her marriage to Wiz Khalifa. “He went on to make a song saying that he ‘fell in love with a stripper, but fell out of love quicker,’” she told the crowd. “As you can imagine, him being the love of my life, regardless of if we’re going through a separation or not, that was extremely hurtful.” At this point, Rose teared up. After the crowd chanted encouragement, she resumed speaking. “All I did was ever love him,” she added, her voice cracking. “So I decided to have the Slut Walk for women that have been through shit.”

She also addressed her break-up with Kanye. “I was extremely slut-shamed,” she noted. “I was called ‘nothing but a stripper’… why would he ever be interested in me, I’m just a ‘bald-head stripper from Philly?’ I was a ‘golddigger;’ apparently he had to take 30 showers after being with me, that’s what he said. I guess that just washed all my sexy bald-headedness off of his ass.”

Despite Kanye’s comments, Rose offered the rapper forgiveness. “I want to let all that negativity go,” she said. Again, the crowd cheered her on. “I also forgive Wiz for what he said. Wiz actually apologized to me already, so I have forgiven him. I suggest that you guys do the same, and I’ll tell you why: because they’re ignorant at times. People are ignorant, and you have to be the bigger person, and be the positive person to forgive and move on and help other people around you that have been through the same thing.”
