Amber Rose responds to Kanye’s “stripper” blast with slut-shaming essay

The comments come after Kanye West’s epic Twitter rant at her and Wiz Khalifa earlier this week.

Unless you live under a rock, you’ll be aware that Kanye West went into meltdown on Wednesday with an epic Twitter rant at Wiz Khalifa.

Despite being utterly confused about what seemingly started the beef (West thought Khalifa’s tweets referencing KK were about his wife Kim Kardashian, when they were really about Khalifa’s brand of medicinal weed, Khalifa Kush), in his now deleted stream of abuse West had some less than nice things to say about his ex-girlfriend, and the mother of Khalifa’s child, Amber Rose.

West called Rose a “stripper” who trapped Khalifa with a child before, bizarrely, claiming ownership of the child that he was claiming Rose used to entrap Wizzy.

Leaving the complexities of that statement aside, West’s label of Rose as a “stripper” raises alarming concerns over his views on women. Particularly when it also came to light that former adult film star Lisa Ann claimed yesterday that West has sent her unwanted dick pics.

Whilst Khalifa remained calm, Rose took to Twitter with a hilarious sex-shame of her own:

But now, as further response to West’s cannon of abuse, Rose has written an essay for Time on the hypocrisy of slut-shaming.

“After my ex-husband Wiz Khalifa and I got a divorce, I’d go out for a date at a restaurant like any normal single human,” she wrote. “People would say: ‘Man, she’s such a ho. She’s out at restaurants with guys.’ Then they would see my ex-husband with a bunch of women. They would say: ‘He’s the man! That’s so cool.’ So when I went on a date, I’m a whore, and when he’s piling girls in a car, he’s the man? There’s something wrong here.”

It’s unclear whether Rose’s words were written before or after West’s rant, as it makes no direct reference to West’s latest display of utter stupidity. But Rose did add that often, women are as much to blame as men for slut-shaming.

“It wasn’t just men saying these types of things. There were a lot of women saying hateful things to me,” she continued. “I was getting torn down constantly. But in the past year, I’ve just started not caring.

“So please: Before you judge someone – especially another woman – put yourself in her shoes and also look at your past. That’s what a lot of women fail to do. They’re so quick to call another girl names, but it’s like: You know what? There may have been a time where you looked back and said: ‘I probably shouldn’t have done that.’ Does that make you a ho? No, it makes you a human.”

West responded to Rose’s #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch comments this morning. Words aren’t really necessary as a response to his latest venture onto social media, aside from the fact that someone close to Kanye should probably tell him to start wiping his arse.

Perhaps the stench at Glastonbury last year wasn’t coming from the long drops after all.
