In an IRL continuation of her "stride of pride" video, Amber Rose hosted a SlutWalk in Los Angeles this weekend, during which she tearfully recalled all the times she was shamed for her sexuality.

"As you can imagine, him being the love of my life…that was extremely hurtful," she said of Wiz Khalifa singing "I fell in love with a stripper, but I fell out of love quicker." "I decided to have this SlutWalk for women who have been through shit. And even though I'm up here crying, I want to be the strong person you guys can look up to."

Rose ended her speech by forgiving Wiz and another ex, Kanye West, who once stated that he "had to take 30 showers before [he] got with Kim." 

"People are ignorant, and you have to be the bigger person to help other people around you who have been through the same thing," she said. "Let's all come together and be positive role models for each other."
