Amber Rose wants you to know: It’s not okay to touch her without her consent.
On Saturday’s episode of It’s Not You, It’s Men, Rose, 32, goes toe-to-toe with cohosts Rev Run and Tyrese about her social media image after revealing she gets “sexually assaulted constantly” by fans.
“When I walk down the street, people think because I’m famous, or I’m cool and I’m taking pictures, that they can just grab my ass or put their hand under my skirt or, ‘Oh Amber, can I come grab your boobs?’ ” she shared.
“Girls do that to me all the time, and it does get like, I love you girls so much, but it does get like, stop grabbing on my boobs constantly and my butt. And guys, too. This is my privacy!”
Rev Run responded by suggesting to Rose that maybe “a representation of what you’re wearing and stuff and seems like, in their mind, what you’re representing.”
Tyrese shared his point of view saying, “I’m just saying, the comfortability some people find in wanting to touch or grope you. It’s an energy that is sent out there that creates that type of response.”
However, Rose fired back, saying that her sometimes revealing social media presence does not nullify her right to consent.
“If I’m laying down with a man butt-naked and his condom is on, and I say, ‘You know what? No. I don’t wanna do this. I changed my mind.’ That means no. That means f–k no,” she clarified also adding, “It doesn’t matter how far I take it or what I have on, when I say no, it means no.”
In response, Rev Run recites the quote, “Dress how you wanna be addressed” but not before Rose shuts him down saying, “Oh, boo. No. That’s not realistic. Stop it.”
