[Watch] Amber Rose Schools Tyrese and Rev Run on Date Rape

Twitter isn't having it.

Published February 21, 2016

Amber Rose continues to preach against society's double standards against women by giving men (and some women) everywhere a much-needed lesson on consent. On an episode of Tyrese and Rev Run’s It’s Not You, It’s Men, Rose went toe-to-toe with the male hosts about her public image after saying that she gets “sexually assaulted constantly."
 
It started off with Rose explaining that when she walks down the street, and fans stop her to take pictures people will “just grab by ass or put their hand under my skirt or, ‘Oh Amber, can I come grab your boobs?'” she said, mimicking fans requests. She continued, “Girls do that to me all the time, and it does get like, I love you girls so much, but it does get like, stop grabbing on my boobs constantly and my butt. And guys, too. This is my privacy!”

Though Rev Run and Tyrese seemed genuinely interested in Amber's point of view, they couldn't help but try to justify the date rape culture that is still puts so much of the blame for sexual harassment on women. Run spoke up first, saying Rose may be inviting the catcalls because she's “a representation of what you’re wearing and stuff and seems like, in their mind, what you’re representing.” Tyrese then chimed in, adding, “I’m just saying, the comfortability some people find in wanting to touch or grope you. It’s an energy that is sent out there that creates the type of response.”

Tyrese then went on to share this analogy: “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!’” 

Amber was quick to shut down their justifications: "If I'm laying down with a man butt-naked and his condom is on, and I say, 'You know what? No. I don't wanna do this. I changed my mind.' That means no. That means f**k no," she asserted, adding, "It doesn't matter how far I take it or what I have on, when I say no, it means no." 

Run tried one more time to make his point, recited the saying, “Dress how you wanna be addressed,” but Rose was quick to retaliate, saying, “Oh, boo. No. That’s not realistic. Stop it.”

To their credit, the men seemed to have taken Amber's message to heart and expressed their support on Twitter:
