Amber Rose: I Did NOT Laugh At Molestation Victim
Amber Rose is hitting back at claims she laughed at a molestation victim during a live streaming session.
On Wednesday, Rose took callers during an Instagram Live video, but abruptly ended one conversation after the woman appeared to be joking about being a molestation victim. It didn’t take long for the situation to get twisted on social media, with haters accusing Rose of laughing and being rude to an actual victim of sexual assault. Trolls further accused the star of being a fake activist.
But on Thursday morning, Rose posted a lengthy response on Instagram. In it, she sets the record straight about the incident, and defends her activism work. The rant was posted as the caption to a photo showing screengrabs of two hateful comments
“I was on IG live last night with my friends a woman called in and said that she was molested by her uncle when she was 5 years old at the same time laughing with her friend in the background. She obviously wanted A moment on our IG live that’s why I said ‘That’s too much” and hung up on her,’ Rose explained.
She went on, “I’m not gonna deal with people that think its funny or they just want to get a little five minutes of fame on Instagram. It’s really f*cked up because I give my life to helping women, rape victims, sexual assault victims and women that have suffered from molestation. Furthermore there were people in that room with me last night that were molested, also SO WAS MY MOTHER! So why would I ever laugh at someone that was molested???? All of you so called supporters of mine were never supporters at all, if you were you would’ve known better.”
“Also I’m so sick of people saying that I make all of this money from slut walk,” Rose said, referring to her annual event supporting sexual liberation and women’s rights. “Guess how much I make??? 0 f*cking dollars Slut Walk is FREE and I put my blood sweat and tears into it every year.”
The former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant continued, “I’ve taken so many punches for all of you!!! From social media, media outlets, people on the street to brands that won’t even work with me because I stand for women and Slut shaming. It’s disappointing that you can devote your life into helping people every single day and one misunderstanding everybody turns their back on you.”
Rose concluded by urging, “Stand up and make a change! Ask yourself what are YOU doing for Women’s Rights? Or whatever ur cause is. Know ur facts before you try to erase all the good someone has done. I have an extremely compassionate heart and I will continue to take the punches.” NOTE: Rose’s post has since been taken down.
