Over the weekend, Amber Rose shared a NSFW photo of herself on Instagram to promote her annual SlutWalk and to #bringbackthebush.
The image, which was removed from Instagram because of community guidelines, caused plenty of conversation onlineand like clockwork, Piers Morgan arrived, ready to share his unwanted opinions on the photo, Rose’s promotion tactics, and feminism.
Rose engaged with the British personality on Twitter, and the two had a fiery discussion which led to her schooling Morgan with just a few simple tweets.
It all started when Morgan tweeted “Put it away, luv. Thanks” in response to Rose’s photo.
“I’ll take Things Misogynistic Assholes Say for 500, Alex,” Rose replied, in Jeopardy fashion.
Morgan then mansplained what is and what is not considered prejudice against women.
“It’s not ‘misogyny’ to think that posting nude photos in the supposed name of feminist empowerment is pathetic attention-seeking bulls**t,” he tweeted.
“Nude? Where?,” Rose tweeted. “My breast nor my vagina was showing and my legs were closed. I am assuming you are referring to the pubic hair that was shown in the picture. Uncomfortable? Get over it,” she said.
“I can handle your naked body, Amber – relax. I just can’t handle your ridiculous claim to be stripping off in the name of feminism,” Morgan tweeted, continuing the back-and-forth.
Rose called him out for his initial tweet, which contradicted his claim that he could handle her NSFW photo.
Rose then shared an image of Adam Levine in a nude photo to illustrate her point, asking Morgan if he thought Levine’s photo was attention seeking or not. Morgan tried to explain that no, it wasn’t, because Levine was simply raising awareness for a prostate and testicular cancer charity.
“I raise awareness for my foundation as well Piers,” she responded. “That’s like saying breast cancer awareness is cool but what about HIV and AIDS…my ‘naked’ body offended you for my nonprofit SlutWalk but a woman grabbing Adam Levine’s dick and balls was cool?”
“This is what Emmeline Pankhurst fought so hard for? Jeez,” Morgan tweeted, responding to Rose’s repost of the image. Pankhurst was a part of the the British suffragette movement.
“I’m sorry I forgot only men can be sexually confident,” Rose clapped back.
“If famous men started posting naked photos to social media claiming it was to ‘promote male empowerment’, they’d be jailed,” he tweeted, so naturally, Morgan then decided to re-share a shirtless ad he did for Burger King, citing he was posting “in the name of male empowerment.”
“So you got naked for a Burger King check and ur giving me a hard time?” Rose responded.
Morgan didn’t acknowledge the double standard of supporting Levine while chastising Rose, but hey, Rose’s Los Angeles SlutWalk is on Oct. 1, 2017. Maybe by then, he will understand policing women’s bodies isn’t cool at allnot now, not ever.
