The Amber Rose SlutWalk took place on the weekend in downtown L.A. and hundreds of people showed up to support the cause. Rose was emotional while giving a speech to her supporters in which she discussed how two of her famous exes have publicly slut shamed her.

SlutWalks started in 2011 after a police officer told York University students to “to avoid dressing as sluts in order not to be victimized,” after a string on sexual assaults on the Toronto campus. Women in the city gathered for the first SlutWalk and the movement has gained global momentum since.

Rose’s non-profit organization, The Amber Rose Foundation, organized L.A.’s first event and hopes to bring it other cities. The foundation’s Go Fund Me account is already at over $56,000 and Nicki Minaj has donated $5000.

But back to her slut-shaming exes – one of them, Kanye West, was particularly nasty when discussing Rose in an interview.

“It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that was with Amber Rose…I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.”

The other ex is Wiz Khalifa, who rapped about his ex-wife on his song “For Everybody”: “I fell in love with a stripper / Funny thing is I fell back out of love quicker.”

At the walk Rose announced that she forgave the men who shamed her.

“I want to forgive Kanye for what he said about me,” she said in front of the crowd. “I want to let all that negative, that negativity go.”

As for Khalifa, it looks like he has learned from his mistakes.

“I also forgive Wiz for what he said,” she said. “Wiz actually apologized to me already, so I have forgiven him.”

“I suggest that you guys do the same and I’ll tell you why,” she continued. “Because you can’t…they’re ignorant at times, 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.”

Go Amber!  She’s teaching one rapper at a time that slut shaming is unacceptable.
