Amber Rose Calls Out Nicki Minaj With Reads & Receipts In An Instagram Essay

Does Nicki Minaj have time in her schedule to bicker with Amber Rose? Perhaps.

Muva is asking that credit be given where it’s due.

Amber feels that several artists (including Fergie and Nicki Minaj) and brands overlook her style of feminist activism, but still blatantly use it as inspiration in their creative endeavors. She made her case on Instagram.

And she brought up a few specific examples. First up, the graffiti outfits (which included spray-painted slurs and words that attempt to demean people) that she and Blac Chyna wore for the VMAs a while back. She thinks that another designer copied the concept and now Diesel is using it in their latest commercial with Nicki for their “Hate Couture” campaign.

Next, she pointed to Fergie, who used “MILF” branding concepts to promote her 2016 single, “MILF Money”.


“This is not about the Artists and Talent in these videos. I am extremely frustrated. Every single year I put my blood, sweat and tears into my [expletive]walk. I did not create the [expletive]Walk movement. I did, however bring it to the forefront for this generation. People remind of this daily, through their deliberate attacks and evil comments. It becomes extremely frustrating when brands are “inspired” ? by the movement and curate my actual life story and use it as a marketing tool,” Amber wrote.



“The Amber Rose SlutWalk and SlutWalks all around the globe, do not receive the attention or support they deserve. I do interview after interview to bring more awareness about the equality issues we deal with as women and people…..”.

“Body shaming, Fat shaming, [expletive] shaming and victim blaming. I take a lot of punches and a lot of scrutiny and I’m cool with that cuz I do it for the greater good. I also DON’T do it for the recognition AT ALL but God [expletive] Bruh smh.”

“I remember a few years back I used to put #MILFIN and #MILF on all of my post to only see a music video about milfs that I was not invited to be in… cool. I get it, I was an Actual Stripper, I’m not worthy ? then I show up to the VMAs with my team with outfits that say [expletive] and [expletive] etc and I go online and see huge brands take that and run with it and still no phone call,” she continued.

“Two men made a song that said “you’re such a [expletive] [expletive] I love it” but if I refer to myself as [expletive], take back any derogatory label and turn it into a positive or be confident in my [expletive] in anyway [expletive] need 30 showers and I’m literally the evilest person on earth yet everyone wants to take my [expletive] swag but look down on me? [Expletive] annoying af But I’ll continue to be A trendsetter and help women – The Real Bad Guy”.





Thoughts? 


Amber previously told Time's Motto that she had started her [expletive]Walk to create a "safe place for women to come, twerk, go topless or wear pasties, get to know each other as women and understand we're free beings."

"We all have skeletons in our closets, and we're all allowed to do whatever a man does because he doesn't get judged for it," she explained. "The number one misconception was people assuming that it was a walk to promote prostitution or promiscuity, which is really stupid. That’s the total opposite of what it was."


There’s more.

Radio host/Flavor of Love star Deelishis showed her support for Nicki’s new movement in the comment section, penning, “Love the message”, to which Nicki replied, “Me too. Powerful & on time”. 



Joseline Hernandez (who is not a fan of Nicki Minaj) got in on the action too, showcasing exactly whose side she was on by saying “#teamamber whatever you need!!! Let’s go”.


Also, Amber and Nicki were friends at one point, right? Amber made a cameo riding shotgun with Nicki in her “Massive Attack” video and recently sat down with Peter Rosenberg and claimed she convinced Kanye West to add Nicki to the hit song, “Monster.” 

“I believed in Nicki from the beginning. I was with Kanye at the time and I was like, ‘Kanye, you gotta give her a shot like she’s amazing. He tried it out and he put her on ‘Monster.’ He was like, ‘[expletive], she [expletive] killed that [expletive].'”
