(AllHipHop News) Me Too has been one of the most impactful social movements in recent history. Even though the cause has brought international awareness to sexual misconduct and sexual harassment, there has been some criticism of #MeToo as well.
Amber Rose expressed her concerns with the movement during an appearance on the syndicated talk show The Raw Word. While speaking with hosts Michael Eric Dyson and Claudia Jordan, the SlutWalk organizer shared her views about Me Too.
"It's kind of frustrating to me because all of a sudden feminism became such a mainstream thing now that white - no shade - white, rich actresses start coming out saying 'Me too, me too.' But what happened to all of us?" stated Rose. "What happened to the strippers, the LGBTQ community, and the black girls in college? Nobody wanted to talk about these people."
Activist Tarana Burke, an African-American woman, is often credited as creating the phrase "Me Too" - as it relates to showing support for victims of sexual assault - back in 2006. White actresses such as Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowen played a role in spreading the #MeToo hashtag on social media in 2017.
