Amber Rose’s Slut Walk has taken over LA and has garnished a huge following of women and media outlets from all over to support the ultimate feminism movement. To put the icing on the cake for a very successful event, Rose gave a powerful heartfelt speech regarding her experience with slut-shaming from previous exes Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa.
She states “I’ve decided to have this Slut Walk for women who have been through sh*t. Even though I am up here crying I want to be the strong person you all look up to and do apologize for all guys.”
On Kanye West:
“I want to forgive Kanye about what he said about me. I want to let all of that negativity go.”
On Wiz Khalifa:
“He went on to make a song saying that he fell in love with a stripper, but fell out of love quicker. As you can imagine, him being the love of my life, regardless of us going through a separation or not it was extremely hurtful.” She later apologizes to Wiz about his hurtful lyrics, “I also forgive Wiz for what he said. Wiz actually apologized to me already, so I have forgiven him.”
She ends her empowering speech with motivation to anyone victims of slut-shaming or any kind of verbal abuse to forgive and be the better person. “They are ignorant at times. People are ignorant” she states. “You have to be the bigger person, be the positive person, to forgive, move on and help other people around you that have been through the same thing. Let’s all come together and be positive role models for each other and let that negative sh*t go.”
