Muva has spoken once more to slam media slut shaming, and this time she's dragged Channing Tatum into it as an example of how people face double standards depending on the Xs or Ys of their chromosomes.

Rose, who infamously worked as a stripper when she was a teenager, called out the media for celebrating Channing's panty-dropping past while simultaneously stigmatizing her for working in the same industry.

Like Rose, Tatum was a stripper.

Amber pointed out that if she chose to make a movie about her stripping days, pearls would be clutched the nation over, stripping bare a double standard:

"He even made a movie about being a stripper! And everyone bought it and they loved it and they were like, ‘Oh, my God, Magic Mike, we gotta go see it!’ But if I did that, people would tell me I was disgusting."

The outspoken model, who holds no bars when it comes to shouting from the rooftops on the behalf of the sisterhood, told Cosmopolitan that people still judge her for her former career, despite her success:

"I run eight business, I'm the CEO of my own company, and still I'm called a stripper. It's so ridiculous."

Of course, Rose doesn't blame Channing personally, but wants us to acknowledge that double standards like this are something society as a whole should probably think about:

"We've had the same life, [Channing] and I, and I'm dumbed down for it. It's not his fault — it's just society.”

You've got to admit, she's got a point. But, this isn't the first time Rose has bought the issue to the public eye and she pointed out the hypocrisy of still being virtually spat upon for her former-career all the way back in 2010:

Apparently, according to the general public, a stripper can't change their stripes but a drug dealer totally can.

Luckily, Amber has plenty of fans who have her back on Twitter and, weirdly, some of them made the same Channing Tatum comparison around the end of August:

If you come for Amber or call her a former stripper online, you better watch out, though. Remember what happened to Kanye?


Do you think Amber Rose and Channing Tatum have been treated differently for their stripping careers?
