Amber Rose Shares Terrifying Story About the First Time She Was Slut-Shamed At 14

So awful. While other girls were simply crushing on boys when they were 14, Amber Rose was already dealing with boys slut-shaming her. Read the full terrifying story of Amber's first slut-shaming encounter right here. Amber Rose may totally own being called a "slut" now, but it hasn't always been that easy. The 29-year-old model has been unfortunately been dealing with slut-shaming for 15 years already, which means it first happened when she was only 14 years old. She shared her horrific experience in a new interview with Hustler magazine -- and it's certainly jarring.

“I was about 14. I was still a virgin, and me and my friends, we just started kissing boys. And I was making out with this boy I know in the closet, and he was like, ‘Get down on your knees.’ I was like, ‘Why?’ Because I just didn’t understand,” she explained to the mag. “I was so young that I didn’t get it. And he was like, ‘No, just get down on your knees. I’m telling you, I just got to show you something.’ And I’m like, ‘Okay.’ I get down on my knees, and he opens the closet door. All my friends are out there. And his d**k is out. In my face.”

As if that wasn’t humiliating enough, Amber’s friends had no sympathy for her. “They were like, ‘Oh, my God, look, she was sucking his d**k.’ I was like, ‘No, I wasn’t. I swear to God. I wasn’t doing that.’ And they were like ‘Yeah, you were. It was in your face.’ I didn’t even know what was going on. I went to school, and it was horrible.”

The situation quickly spiraled into shaming from not just people from the party — the whole school joined in. (“People were just like, ‘We’ve seen you. You were on your knees.'”) Plus, Amber said the boy treated her like a “total a*****e” after it, which helped nothing. Things got so bad that she moved back to her mom’s house in Philadelphia, where she ended up finishing high school. Yet somehow, the slut-shaming never stopped.

“Girls would still call me a whore all the time…because all the boys liked me,” she added. “When you’re the new girl in school and you’re pretty and all the boys like you, the girls hate you. I always wore platform sneakers. I was just so different, a different type of girl.”

Poor Amber! No girl deserves that kind of treatment — especially not a 14-year-old. But instead of wallowing about haters for the rest of her life, Amber decided to turn things around years later, which ultimately led to her first-ever SlutWalk in October 2015. If people didn’t realize Amber was serious about forgetting the slut-shamers, that certainly did it.

While it’s unclear if Amber discussed her first slut-shaming incident at her Los Angeles SlutWalk event, but she did talk about her experience with Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West — who famously claimed he needed to “take 30 showers” after being with Amber. Ironically, five months later, she praised Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, for not dealing with her own slut-shaming. They may even be joining forces for the next SlutWalk!

Despite having such a scary first encounter with slut-shaming, Amber has bounced back in the most fierce way possible. We hate that she has had to go through so much discrimination, but we commend Amber for how amazingly she’s handled it!
