As reported by The New York Daily News, Amber Rose‘s annual SlutWalk, which took place in Pershing Square in Los Angeles was hit by Christian protesters.
Amber Rose has created the SlutWalk to address the erroneous concept that a woman’s vulnerability to sexual assault is based on their attire. The NY Daily News reported that there were: “thousands of scantily-clad marchers, who were in attendance to stand up for gender equality and raise awareness about sexual injustice.”
Ms Rose has recently claimed that she felt body shamed by Dancing With The Stars‘ Julianne Hough.
The Christian protesters carried signs inscribed “Black Baby Lives Matter” & “God Hates U Just The Way U Are”. It was reported that the protesters were not dismayed, as one responded by twerking.
Ms Rose is quoted to have said in promotional text:
“The idea that there is some aesthetic that attracts sexual assault or even keeps you safe from sexual assault is inaccurate, ineffective and even dangerous, No more sexual violence, no more victim blaming, no more derogatory labels and no more gender inequality.”
