When Amber Rose broke down during her MTV interview, my heart dropped.
Since the break up, she's put on a strong mask, built a wall and went on with her life. We had no clue what Kanye's words did to her.
When Yeezy low key called her a bird in "Runaway," she didn't respond, when he aired her out on "Blame Game," she didn't flinch. When he called her out during shows - not a peep.
Finally when Sway asked Amber why she kept talking about Kanye, the tears fell. She talked about how Kanye fans threw stuff at her because they broke up and about how she doesn't deserve to be bullied. No one does.
You'll have to excuse me, I have a soft spot for women who cry, a soft spot for women who get bullied. My mother was bullied much worse than Amber Rose. So when people say she should deal with it because it's a part of being a celebrity, I call bullshit!
Celebrities are people too. Just because Jay-Z is wealthy doesn't mean he's in the illuminati. People said unthinkable things about that man and his family and as he said on "Free Mason," he would have preferred people to squeeze the metal on him, rather than put the devil on him.
People have no heart when it comes to saying things about celebrities. One person tweeted, "Love like you've never been hurt, laugh like you're watching Kim Kardashian fall down a flight of stairs."
Like falling down a flight of stairs can't kill you.
Another person tweeted, "Rihanna is like a period. She comes out every month with waste, bringing pain & dirt to people's lives."
Who says things like this! I don't know about y'all, but to even think these things show signs of sociopathic behavior.
We must remember that being a fan or a spectator doesn't give us the right to bash a celebrity. They deserve respect too. While sticks and stones break bones, words can hurt too.
