Ruby Rose slams Kanye West for ‘hurting too many women’

The genderfluid actress says the rapper has crossed to many lines recently, after his latest attack on Taylor Swift.

Ruby Rose has taken to Twitter in a bid to silence an increasingly volatile Kanye West – saying he has crossed “too many lines”.

The genderfluid actor and model has called out the rapper – claiming he has hurt too many women recently.

“Too many lines crossed. If I put myself in the shoes of the women he has hurt recently,” she wrote.

“Victims of Bill Cosby, The Slut shaming, Amber…”

The Orange Is The New Black star is referring to West’s recent outbursts on Twitter – during which he claimed alleged rapist Bill Cosby is innocent and attacked his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose.

However, the final straw for Rose are lyrics featured on the rap star’s upcoming much-renamed album, Life of Pablo, in which he slates pop star Taylor Swift.

On his latest record, Famous, West raps: “I feel like me and Taylor [Swift] might still have sex, yeah I made that bitch famous.”

He is referring of course to his infamous outburst at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, during which he stormed on stage to unleash an astonishing rant during Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video.

The incident provoked a huge backlash from fans – and even prompted President Barack Obama to call West a “jackass”.

And it seems he has lost yet another fan, as Rose stated she could no longer support him as “a feminist” or “a friend”.

This is not the first time the model has spoken out in defence of her famous friends, after lending her support to fellow actress Jennifer Lawrence last month.

The Hunger Games star found herself in hot water after she described her personal style as “slutty power lesbian”.

Despite offending some members of the LGBT community, Rose claimed that Lawrence did not mean to upset anybody, before praising her for being a positive role model for all women – regardless of their sexuality.

“Jennifer Lawrence is an amazing actress and an amazing advocate for women and women’s empowerment and the wage gap in Hollywood and so many amazing things,” she said.
