Amber Rose Blasts Pink in Defense of Kim Kardashian
If you thought Kim Kardashian had the last word on the conversation surrounding her own nude selfie (she did, after all, write an essay about feeling empowered by her own body -- that should be enough to end this discussion), you thought wrong.
A day after Pink weighed in on Kim’s nudes (without directly mentioning them), Amber Rose -- who sufficiently dispelled any rumors of ill-will between she and Kim with the posting of a single selfie last month -- joined in on the action, defending the reality star and her decision to publicly own her confidence.
"Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualizes our breast and bodies,” Amber wrote on Instagram, in response to the singer's tweet. "If a grown mother of 2 is comfortable with her body and wants to show it off that's none of ur business or anyone else’s.”
She continued, "Now, if u wanna talk to kids and be a mentor to young teens, tell them to go to school and to not use their bodies to get ahead?! I'm all for it! But please as a grown woman let another grown woman live as she wishes."
Amber then compared Kim's selfie to Pink’s aerial performances, claiming the difference in response between the two is rooted in classism: "Pink, We've seen u damn near naked swinging from a rope (Beautifully) but what's the difference between a rope, a pole and a pic on Instagram? Classism. Because u sing while ur half naked does that make it 'Classy' or is it because u have a 'talent'? I'm not dissing at all Pink just curious after u said 'You'll never have to make a silly excuse for yourself'."
Then, in a separate post she shared shortly afterward, Amber invited Kim to join her in this year’s Slut Walk to speak publicly about her experiences of being slut shamed.
"Being Slut shamed and ridiculed is not fun it's hurtful and mean. Us women deal with it everyday and I'm happy u can speak openly on this now because if anyone knows what it's like to be Slut Shamed it's u! Live it Kim!,” she wrote.
"Last year at my Slutwalk I told my Slut shaming story. This year I would love for u to come and tell urs. This is an open invite from me to u and ur sisters are welcomed too,” she continued, extending the invitation to the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan. "Let's let the naysayers know u are so much more then a sex tape (13 years ago) f---k it own it. Ur a mom and a business woman, a wife, sister and daughter."
If ever there were a way to finally and diplomatically bring the discussion of Kim's naked portraits to a close, let Amber's discourse on the topic be it.
