*Amber Rose confirmed her decision to undergo a breast reduction surgery on Tuesday and the beauty-obsessed Millennials lashed out at her for wanting to remove the foreign objects from her body.
Although the stripper-turned slut advocate received an outpouring of support from fans, she also saw intense backlash from mostly males who shamed her for altering her body, per msn.com.
The backlash followed Rose’s announcement that she was going under the knife on Wednesday. She expressed her excitement and nervousness on her Instagram story and posted a video with her plastic surgeon, Dr. Garth Fisher (see below).
In August 2017, Rose said one of the main reasons for getting a breast reduction was so she could wear “cute lil shirts without a grandma bra.”

“Many women have what we call macromastia, [a term for] the breast being too large,” board-certified plastic surgeon Peter Taub, M.D., a professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, tells SELF.
“With large, heavy, and what we call ‘pendulous’ breasts (a D-cup and above), that weight can transmit to the back, shoulders, and neck,” Dr. Taub says, causing serious pain and discomfort in these areas on a daily basis.
There are also many women who opt for a breast reduction for personal aesthetic reasons.
“We often see it in women who have had children, for example, [because] with lactation, the breasts tend to come down a little bit,” says Dr. Taub. Other candidates just prefer the look and feel of more petite breasts.
Rose was bombarded with comments from critics who protested her decision. Unsurprisingly, most of the comments were from whiny men. “Ur slapping god in the face,” one user commented. Another added, “PLEASE DON’T THEY LOOK GOOD ON YOU.”
Rose hasn’t posted on social media since going under the knife last week, but she said in November that her big breasts have caused her back pain and restricted her fashion choices.
