Poor Amber Rose.
The talk show host recently sat down with Yahoo! Style and got real about sexual harassment. In the wake of Donald Trump‘s multiple accusers coming forward, the Dancing With The Stars castoff is speaking out about unacceptable conduct.
The momma-of-one wants the GOP nominee to face consequences for his inexcusable actions, and even confessed that she, herself, had often been harassed by famous men, telling Joe Zee:
“I want him to get in trouble for it because I cannot even count how many times a famous guy touched me inappropriately. Seriously.”
Wow. That’s so upsetting.
But, the 33-year-old explained that these high-profile men feel as though they’re untouchable, and their widespread popularity often discourages everyday women from reporting any unsettling incidents, adding:
“Imagine this: Donald Trump comes and touches me inappropriately, right? I’m a regular ass girl. Do I call 911? Do I get on Twitter and tweet about it? How should I go about letting people know that this guy did it to me and who’s actually going to believe me, you know what I’m saying?”
The SlutWalk host also explained that she refers to herself as a “slut” in an attempt to turn the insulting title into one more empowering:
“People not understanding that women are sexual beings as well is the reason why I refer to myself as a slut. It really just takes away the pain, takes away the bullying that we deal with as women.”
We’re so grateful that Amber shared her story, and think she really highlights a HUGE problem about sexual harassment and assault by famous individuals.
