Amber Rose rejects criticism of her Ghana trip
From Necole B**chie
Amber Rose is not happy…and it’s not hard to see why she’s pissed. Earlier this week she received intense scrutiny and backlash after she visited Ghana to host the Vodafone 020 festival (featuring Trey Songz) as well as visit kids that are living in poverty. Many Ghanaians were offended when she decided to tweet photos of those who lived in ‘poor areas’ and stated that people in Ghana were either extremely rich or extremely poor, with no middle class.
The statement pissed off a reader of Ghana Celebrities so much, that they wrote an article questioning why she was invited to host the music festival in the first place with her only decent credibility being ‘Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend’.. The writer also made it a point to state that Amber should inform herself on the continent of Africa as well as the country of Ghana before making any comments in the future.
Since then, Amber posted a blog on her Whosay account to voice her frustrations with those that continue to berate her, saying it’s only because she’s a woman. She also points out the double standard of people’s reactions to her nude photos leaking versus if it was a male, and that people are hard on her because she’s a woman, she used to be a stripper and more importantly, she’s Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend.
