Amber Rose is turning a new page on Instagram. The feminist activist and author has cleared her IG profile of posts and followers as of Saturday. It is unclear what inspired the decision.
The Instagram wipe comes a few days after Amber spoke out against homophobic responses to her son Bash’s Taylor Swift fandom. After Rose posted a video in which she presented the 5-year-old with Taylor Swift tickets personally sent to the family by Swift herself, certain commenters began to state that Bash was gay based on his taste in music. She called out the conversation as “bullying” and suggested it was this type of thinking that leads youth to consider suicide. “[This is] why our society is so fucked up,” she wrote. “Let’s do better for the next generation people. Grow the fuck up and teach ur kids to love and not hate.”
Amber also recently confirmed her split with 21 Savage, who she had been publicly dating since last year. “To be in a relationship, in general, is very difficult. To be famous and in a relationship is even more difficult,” she said in an interview on Big Boy In The Morning. While she was hesitant to call herself “single,” as she still loves 21, Rose revealed that they now rarely speak.
Rose currently has a following of 16.8 million on Instagram. The clearing of an Instagram has been a promotional tactic used by artists like Future in the past. Is Amber just taking a well-deserved break from social media or does she have a big announcement in the works?
