Amber Rose is much more than a pretty face; she’s a strong, intelligent woman who has been working hard to combat women’s equality issues — one of the reasons for her Slut Walk — but Rose feels a recent article reduced her to nothing more than a bit of arm candy.
Rose was featured in GQ magazine, but her excitement to be in the publication quickly changed once she saw what they had written about her. Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Rose uploaded a screen shot of an excerpt from the magazine, part of which reads, “Amber Rose wrote the book on it. No, seriously: Kanye’s famous ex, Wiz Khalifa’s baby mama, America’s toughest bald babe since Sigourney Weaver in Alien 3.”
Now, we don’t need to tell you what’s wrong with the second sentence, because A) you already know, and B) Rose just unleashed her wrath on GQ in the caption. She wrote, “Really @gq??? I’m so much more then Kanye’s Ex or Wiz’s baby’s mama. Damn, why the f*** did u guys reach out to me for this article and photoshoot? To dumb me down? I talked about feminism and my Slutwalk… Wtf nice title smh I expected so much more from u guys and I’m so disappointed. I was so excited to be featured in GQ not realizing I was shooting for a tabloid. My slutwalk was for ignorant shit like this. Oh “Her beautiful dark twisted journey to the top”? Nice pun. Negative af. Thx for nothing.”
While Rose is not the only one who feels this way about the piece, and her fans have sent her messages of support and encouragement, including, “You get my love and support babe,” and “F*** them Amber. Don’t let them get u down. Keep moving.” There is also a surprising large number of people who agree with the magazine’s statement, some of whose comments are included below.
“But seriously whatelse [sic] are you known for besides being kanye’s ex and Wiz’s baby mama and a stripper,” aliy__chawu wrote.
Instagram user onederwuhman shared their thoughts, writing, “Lol why are you upset? This is how the majority sees you. When you objectify yourself how can you expect others to treat you any different.”
And biancamaurie agreed, writing, “Lol when u r dressed half naked and only sell ur body and not ur brains this is how ppl will describe u. Don’t be mad @gq, be mad at how u came in the game. It’s sad when Kim Kardashian, the biggest hoe of all is seen fully dressed more than u and she got famous off a sex tape! The irony.”
