Everyday sexism still exists, and it’s not just a one way street. With the world becoming more obsessed with on social media, issues such as this are becoming more and more common.

If you have any doubts about this at all, it’s definitely worth watching Amber Rose, as she had to lay down some real talk to Run DMC’s Reverend Run and actor Tyrese Gibson earlier this week.

She was a guest on their own TV show, It’s Not You, It’s Men, when they dropped a massive bombshell by implying that she had been getting sexually abused because of the way she dresses.

Amber said:

I get sexually assaulted constantly. When I walk down the street, because people think I’m famous or I’m cool and I’m taking pictures, that they can just grab my ass or put their hand under my skirt or, ‘Oh Amber, can I come grab your boobs?’

Tyrese naively compared a man who wanted to grope a woman dressed provocatively to wanting to play basketball with a guy wearing basketball gear.

Probably a bad comparison that, mate.

Rev Run than added:

They are asking you to do that because of representation of what you are wearing and stuff and what it seems like in their mind what you’re representing.

It’s fair to say these guys probably didn’t quite understand how controversial their statements were, but Amber soon let them know.

She replied:

No it doesn’t, and I’m gonna tell you why. 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 fuck no. It doesn’t matter how far I take it or what I have on, when I say no, it means no.

But then, Rev dropped an absolute clanger: “I wasn’t saying… I’ve just heard a quote that was like, ‘Dress how you wanna be addressed…'”

Understandably, Amber wasn’t too impressed with what he had to say and made it clear how ridiculous he sounded.

Amber added:

Oh, boo. No. That’s not realistic. Stop it. If I want to wear a short skirt and a tank top and I’m at the club with my friends and I feel sexy, I’m not DTF, I’m not even looking at you. I don’t even want to have sex with you. I didn’t come here to have sex. I didn’t come here to hook up with nobody, I came here with my girls and I just feel pretty. I’m not asking for nothing.

It seems Rev and Tyrese eventually saw the error of their ways and tweeted their support for Amber Rose later on.
