Amber Rose is coming for the critics, and she is doing it in a hard way. Haters attacked the former stripper on social media after she made some controversial statements about her hometown of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania.
Kanye West’s former girlfriend recently appeared on Revolt’s “Drink Champs” podcast and during a discussion with host Nore, she said some not so nice things regarding women from the Broad and Ellsworth area in South Philly.
Here are the comments that got the model in trouble: “I do not know how I can say this without sounding [expletive] up, but a lot of the people where I am from aren’t traditionally attractive people. For me, being blessed with beauty, as beautiful women know, is a blessing and a curse. To grow up in such an area and be blessed with beauty, it was very difficult for me.”
Rose, 33, was answering a question about her upbringing.
Sensing that she may have crossed a line. The mother of one decided to take the controversy head on.
The slut-shaming activist explained: “Seeing online today that people took a clip from the “Drink Champs” interview that I did. And I know that people like really want me to be a superficial b*tch, but I am just not that person. I find beauty in everyone. I think everyone is beautiful. Unfortunately, it is not easy doing interviews and, you know, always saying things the way you really want to articulate [indiscernible]. It is like kinda when you send a text to someone, and they are like ‘Why do you have an attitude, ’ and you are like ‘I do not have an attitude.”
This is not exactly what the naysayers were hoping for, but it is certainly less damaging than the original statement.

Reality star Torrei Hart, who was married to Kevin Hart and is from North Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, epically unloaded on Rose.
The mom of two shared in an interview with TMZ: “Number one, is Amber Rose speaking about pre-surgery or post-surgery, that is the question. Cause now, if she is talking about post-surgery, of course, she is not going to look like anybody that’s in the South Philly area, or North Philly, West Philly, any part of Philly because she has got enhancements. So she is not going to look, you know, like the everyday girl… [There’s] plenty of naturally beautiful people in Philadelphia, and I think the platform that she is on, she has to be more responsible with the word choices.”
What are your thoughts on Rose’s initial remark? Did Torrei hit back too hard?
