Amber Rose Did NOT “Mock” Kim Kardashian Amid Kanye West Hospitalization, Despite Claim
OK! announces on its website, “Amber Rose Rekindles Feud & Mocks Kim Kardashian During Kanye West’s Mental Health Crisis!” The accompanying article says, “Amber Rose released a shocking statement as her ex-boyfriend Kanye West battles for his sanity.” So, she said something related to the rapper, right? Wrong.
But before the magazine even gets to that, it sets up its misleading premise by noting Kardashian “drastically cut back her public appearances, and completely dropped off of the social media radar” following her robbery, and “now, as Kanye lies in a hospital bed after having an alleged psychotic break, Kim remains by his side day or night.”
The outlet then says, “What better time for Amber Rose to release a video mocking her enemies?” Wait, what? “The 33-year-old ‘Dancing With The Stars’ alum took to Snapchat AND Instagram to let the entire social media world know that she was quitting social media,” explains the publication, pointing out that Rose “dramatically” said she’s “taking the rest of the year off of social media” and “her assistant would post for her instead.”
What does Rose taking an end-of-year break from social media have to do with Kardashian and West? Absolutely nothing, but the tabloid desperately and pathetically tries to link the stars with inane comparisons, such as highlighting that Rose “even wore a bare face” in her seconds-long clip, “just like Kim has worn in the weeks since her attack!” But where did Rose “mock” Kardashian or West? She didn’t. How does this “rekindle” their feud? It doesn’t.
OK! simply took two situations that have nothing to do with each other and tried to connect them for the sake of scandal. In reality, though, Rose’s announcement is actually fairly common. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Kerry Washington took a social media break earlier this year, and Evan Rachel Wood just said on Tuesday morning that she’s doing the same.
“Do you think Amber’s video is a dig [at] Kimye?” asks OK!. No. Do we think the magazine is ridiculous and shameful? Yes.
