Amber Rose has never been one to shy away from controversy.

The 40-year-old model, known for her advocacy of women’s rights, shocked her fans by endorsing Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential election.

AMBER ROSE AND DONALD TRUMP

This unexpected move has set social media ablaze, according to Daily Mail.

On Monday, Rose posted a photo on Instagram.

At a black-tie event, she was posing with Trump, 77, and his wife, Melania, 54.

The caption read, “Trump 2024,” a clear endorsement of the former president.

AMBER ROSE AND WOMEN’S RIGHTS

The reaction was swift and brutal.

Fans flooded the comments with outrage, according to The Cut.

They pointed out the apparent contradiction between Rose’s endorsement and her advocacy for women’s rights.

Trump, after all, has faced numerous allegations of sexual harassment and played a pivotal role in the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

One commenter, @nubian_throne, expressed the disbelief felt by many.

AMBER ROSE FANS REACT

“Imagine being an ‘advocate’ for women’s rights and endorsing Trump and his party who reversed Roe V Wade. Wild.”

Nathan Hale Williams, a producer, actor, and lawyer, did not mince words either, according to News Week.

“Unfollow with the quickness. He is against everything I thought you stood for. Bye, girl.”

Others, like @princetonboy915, were equally blunt. “AMBER, HE’S LITERALLY AGAINST EVERYTHING YOU STAND FOR! WTF?!?!”

Amber Rose’s history of controversy and bold statements is well-known.

POLITICAL ENDORSEMENT

She created Sl**Walk in 2015 to combat rape culture and victim-blaming.

Many fans feel her Trump endorsement is a betrayal of the values she publicly champions.

Actor and activist Amber Whittington summed up the sentiment.

“Damn, Amber… You’re a Bisexual woman of colour who runs a movement that stands up for Women’s rights and their power against anyone who abuses it.

“That’s OPPOSITE of what he supports…smdh.”

A CONSERVATIVE WOMAN

Even fellow celebrities chimed in.

Vivica A Fox commented, “WTF?? #GURLBYE,” while Bob The Drag Queen simply said, “AMBER?!?!?! WTF.”

Rose’s endorsement also comes just two months after she revealed on Just B With Bethenny Frankel that she has always considered herself conservative.

This revelation came as a surprise to many of her fans.

“I am conservative, actually. I have always been conservative since I was young,” she admitted.

RELATIONSHIP WITH KANYE

She added that her relationship with Kanye West in 2008 transformed her public image into a “s*xpot.”

“That was my first relationship with a celebrity ever but also in the public eye.

“And he knows a lot about fashion and he always wanted me to dress very sexy,” Rose said.

“And I’m like, ‘Ugh, I’m so not her.’ Like, I’m so not her and I get what I come off as but I am so not her.”

The Instagram post has reignited debates about celebrity endorsements and political alignments.

DIVIDED FANBASE

Given his controversial track record, Rose’s endorsement of Trump has left many of her supporters disillusioned.

Blakely Nieman Thornton captured the general sentiment with, “Go to sleep babe, you’re drunk.”

Rose’s actions have always sparked discussions, but this latest move has truly divided her fanbase.

Whether she anticipated this level of backlash is unclear.

A POLARISING FIGURE

One thing is certain: Amber Rose remains a polarising figure who continues to provoke strong reactions.

As the 2024 election approaches, it will be interesting to see if Rose’s endorsement will influence her fans.

Perhaps it will further alienate her from the community she helped build.

Only time will tell how this endorsement will affect her public image and her advocacy work.
