Amber Rose fires back at Tyrese, Rev. Run for suggesting her image is to blame for sexual assault

Model Amber Rose had a thorny retort to the suggestion that her image is why she’s “sexually assaulted constantly.”

The former stripper, who often shares racy snaps on social media, fired back at “It’s Not You, It’s Men” hosts Tyrese Gibson and Rev. Run after they implied her “energy” was to blame for unwanted groping.

“If I’m laying down with a man butt-naked, and then his condom is on, and I say, ‘You know what? No. I don’t want to do this, I changed my mind,’ that means no. That means f–king no,” Rose schooled the pair on an episode airing Saturday.

“It doesn’t matter how far I take it or what I have on. When I say no, it means no.”

The “Furious 7” star and former Run D.M.C. member had clumsily tried to forge a connection between Rose’s risque image and the unwanted touching she claimed she gets from men and women alike.
“Like, if you see a basketball player, and he’s known as a basketball player, when you see him you’re gonna be like, ‘Yo, let’s go play ball!’ ” Gibson said.
Slammed suggestions: In a sneak peek of her chat show appearance with Tyrese Gibson and Rev Run the pair suggested her style was why people thought it was alright to touch her.
“The comfortability that some people find in wanting to touch or grope you … It’s an energy that’s being sent out there that creates that type of response.”

Run chimed in to recite the saying, “Dress how you want to be addressed.”

The polarizing model quickly dismissed them.

“Oh, boo. No. That’s not realistic,” she said. “Stop it.”

“If I want to wear a short skirt or a tank top and I’m at the club and I’m having fun with my friends and I feel sexy, I’m not DTF. I’m not even looking at you,” she added. “I didn’t come here to have sex.”

She clarified that she wasn’t angry at Gibson and Run, because “that’s how society raised all of us.”

“I’m a former slut-shamer. I’ve called women hoes a million times,” she admitted. “And now I’m not.”

Rose previously rallied for the right to remain scantily clad in October, when sheled a hundreds-strong SlutWalk march in Los Angeles protesting the mistreatment of women.

She also starred in a Funny or Die video titled “Walk of No Shame” in September, and teamed up with bestie Blac Chyna one month earlier to wear body suits bearing words like “slut,” “whore” and “b—h” to the MTV VMAs. New York Daily News.
