Amber Rose lashes out at celebs asking for $30,000 to perform as part of her campaign walk
Amber Rose has lashed out at female celebrities who have asked for more than $30,000 to perform at her Slut Walk.
The controversial star, who is raising awareness of sexual injustice, went on a Twitter rant about stars wanting cash to take part in her campaign, after Amber raised thousands of pounds in donations.
She tweeted: "It's sad how every female artist I've asked (That's available) to perform at my Slut Walk are trying to charge me 30k-40k smh.
"I'm putting my blood, sweat & tears into this Slut Walk for all of us women! & Guess what I don't make 1 red cent. Nada. Not a fucking penny.
"Shit isn't always about money smh do it for the cause! 10 thousand ppl are coming to this Slut Walk."
The 31-year-old model has announced she is hosting the event on October 3 to combat issues such as victim blaming.
The hip-hop model hit back at 'slut shamers' who have claimed she only sleeps with rappers and is now hosting the event to raise awareness for gender equality.
In the star's mission statement, she wrote: "SLUT - A word that exploded into a new but disturbing context after a Toronto police officer told a crowd of college women that if they wanted to avoid sexual assault, they shouldn't dress like sluts.
"This sparked a worldwide campaign starting with the first Slut Walk in Toronto in 2011.
"Amber Rose asks that you stand with her and join the movement on this cause against sexual injustice, victim blaming, derogatory labeling and gender inequality.
The money raised for the walk will go towards HIV testing, sexual awareness booths, food and merchandise vendors and a whole host of services at Down Town Los Angeles.
Mum-of-one Amber previously promoted the cause with a Twitter page , explaining: "The Amber Rose Sl*t Walk is aimed to combat Women's Equality issues, such as sexual injustice, victim blaming, derogatory labeling and gender inequality."
