Amber Rose Blasted For Saying Philly Girls Aren't "Traditionally Attractive"

Philadelphia natives are pissed, but Amber is saying that it's all a miscommunication. What do you think?

Amber Rose has seriously pissed off her hometown.

During a visit to the Drink Champs podcast this week, Rose opened up about what it was like growing up on the south side of Philadelphia, describing the people there as not being viewed as "traditionally attractive" and calling her own beauty a "blessing and a curse."

"I grew up in a very poor neighborhood," she began. "I don't know how I can say this without sounding like, f*cked up, but a lot of the people where I'm from aren't traditionally attractive people."

"For me, being blessed with beauty, as beautiful women know, is a blessing and a curse," she continued. "To grow up in such an area and be blessed with beauty, it was very difficult for me."


Unsurprisingly, people on social media had a lot to say about her comments, and Rose has been getting absolutely roasted on Twitter.

Rose later clarified her comments in a series of videos, saying, "I know that people really want me to be a superficial b*tch but I'm just not that person. I find beauty in everyone. I think everyone is beautiful in their [own way]."

"Unfortunately it's not easy doing interviews and always saying things the way you really want to articulate," she continued. "It's like kinda when you send a text message to someone and they're like, 'Why do you have an attitude?' and you're like, 'I don't have an attitude but it just comes across that way' and it's really [f*cked up]."

"I wasn't saying that's how I felt, I was saying that that's how people treated me and it just didn't come off properly in the interview," she went on. "And so I just watched a clip and I'm like cringing because I'm just so not that girl, man."
