On Sunday night paps approached the social media star, according to TMZ, to ask her about why she’s been seemingly critical about the movement. “It has my support,” Rose clarified. “Every woman deserves justice. I just feel like a black woman started it and she just didn’t get the recognition she deserves...Just don’t leave us out. “
Burke began the #MeToo movement back in 2006, but the hashtag saw a huge surge in popularity after the Harvey Weinstein allegations broke back in October. That hashtag was followed by the #TimesUp movement created by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. The whitewashing and inclusivity of the #MeToo movement is something that several celebs and artists have criticized including Gabrielle Union, Cardi B, and Roxane Gay.
This criticism from Rose isn’t new. Back in February, she told Paper Magazine that she thinks the Women’s Movement and participants of the #TimesUp protests have forgotten about women of color and other marginalized groups in the past. "Maybe because I used to be a stripper, or maybe because I'm extremely outspoken. But they didn't want to help me, and now I see them at the Golden Globes and they're wearing black and all of a sudden they're feminists. But I'm still not invited, I still don't get any help from anyone, because I don't just advocate for Hollywood starlets,” she said at the time. “I advocate for the strippers and the porn stars and the gay boys that get raped all the time. Transexuals—all of the people that are forgotten, they're all at my SlutWalk. So it just becomes frustrating to me because, now all of a sudden, all of the women that are in $20 million movies are coming out and now everybody wants to help. They forgot about the regular people like us."
