Amber Rose held her first-ever SlutWalk in Los Angeles yesterday and the event, which was aimed at stopping victim-blaming in sexual assault cases, was attended by hundreds of supporters.
There were speakers, panelists and other entertainment, but perhaps the most moving part of the whole day was when Amber herself got up on stage and delivered a powerful speech about forgiving her famous exes for slut-shaming her (video below).
Regarding her ex, Wiz Khalifa, writing a diss track about her, Amber said, "He came out with this song that really hurt me, because all I did was ever love him. I loved him so much and gave him a beautiful son, and to be told that I was nothing but a stripper...it hurt." As she tried to hold back tears, Amber explained why she chose to hold the SlutWalk, "for people who have been through s**t."

She went on to say that she forgives Kanye West for the "30 showers" comment he made on Power 105.1's Breakfast Club. "I want to forgive Kanye for what he said about me. I want to let all the negativity go," she continued. "I also forgive Wiz for what he said. Wiz apologized to me already, so I have forgiven him."
"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 around you that have been through the same thing," she said, encouraging everyone there to come together and be positive role models for each other.
