Amber Rose breaks down in tears during her SlutWalk

STANDING PROUD: Former stripper Amber Rose

AMBER ROSE has been promoting her SlutWalk for the last few months and on Saturday (Oct 3) she was finally joined by hundreds of scantily-clad backers as she led a protest against sexual violence and ‘slut-shaming’.

The curvaceous 31-year-old actor and model was all smiles as she led the SlutWalk march in Los Angeles with the support of her mother, waving a sign that read "Strippers Have Feelings Too".

Rose, a former stripper who gained fame during her relationships with rappers Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa, has lately been speaking out against the concept of "slut shaming," or slamming a person for their sexual choices.

She and friend Blac Chyna walked the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in August wearing outfits emblazoned with phrases used to denigrate women.

During the march, Rose opened up onstage about being slut-shamed as a mere 14-year-old and raised her nasty high-profile breakups in front of the crowd, breaking down in tears.

In a clip posted on YouTube, Rose spoke of her emotional pain in the wake of slanderous comments made be her rapper ex-partners, Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa.

Most famously, Kanye said in a radio interview a few months back that he had to take "30 showers" after breaking up with Rose before Kim Kardashian would have considered hooking up with him.


PROTESTING: The SlutWalk fights sexist double standards placed on women

Meanwhile, she was labelled a "stripper" and a "ho" in song For Everybody by ex-husband Khalifa, with whom she has two-year-old son Sebastian.

“All I did was ever love him. I just loved him so much and gave him a beautiful son, and to be told that I was nothing but a stripper, it hurt,” Rose confessed between sobs.

“I want to forgive Kanye for what he said about me. I want to let all that negativity go. I also forgive Wiz for what he said,” she continued, before asking people to also learn to forgive and help others instead of letting anger bubble away inside.

“I suggest you guys to the same and I’ll tell you why: because ... 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 move on around you.”


TEARS: Amber Rose broke down when she spoke out about her ex partners

SlutWalks are part of an international movement, including in Australia, which fights sexist double standards placed on women and the insidious culture of blaming rape victims for their fashion choices.

Rose is increasingly active in the women’s rights movement, having set up a non-profit organisation named the Amber Rose Foundation and a GoFundMe page supporting the cause.
She vows that her Los Angeles SlutWalk event will be the first of many.
