Amber Rose Calls Piers Morgan a 'Misogynistic A**hole' After He Shamed Her on Twitter

Instagram

No matter your opinion of Amber Rose—entrepreneur, model, philanthropist, and unapologetic Kardashian hater—she's no stranger to stirring up chatter when it comes to promoting body positivity and confidence. But a post from Rose this weekend garnered *extra* attention when she chose to show off her pubic hair. (She's not the first star to share what's going on her down there. Emma Watson previously discussed how she grooms her pubic hair.) Rose tweeted a photo of herself nude from the waist down to promote her annual SlutWalk, a march put on by The Amber Rose Foundation aimed to fight against gender inequality and the rape culture—victim blaming and slut shaming in particular. The daylong festival is filled with several activities that include everything from panelists and live performances to free breast cancer exams, HIV testing, and more.

While the image was immediately taken off of Instagram for violating community guidelines, she also posted it to Twitter where it lives on.

But to no one's surprise, criticism rolled in, notably from Piers Morgan, who couldn't help but give his two cents by writing: "Put it away luv, Thanks." Rose's response in a nutshell? "#I'llTakeThingsMisogynisticAssholesSayFor500."

Unfortunately, Morgan's fiery rant continued by mansplaining what he felt should and shouldn't be considered as 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," Morgan said in response.

The model went on to say that she was not naked in her photo; her breasts and vagina were covered. "I am assuming you are referring to the pubic hair that was shown in the picture. Uncomfortable? Get over it." she said. 

Rose went on to share a picture of a naked Adam Levine (albeit covered by a woman's hand) and asked Morgan if he thought that image was attention seeking or not. Of course, in Morgan's opinion, it was not, because Levine was trying to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. And this is where Rose calls him out for his double standard.

"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."

Regardless of Morgan's feelings about Rose's photo (or anyone's photos for that matter), we can all get behind Rose for being a total badass and standing up for women's rights. Plus, she just proved that it's never okay to police a woman's body—no matter what.
