Rob Kardashian Slut Shames Rita Ora: ‘I Don’t Put Up With Sloppiness’

It was only a matter of time before another Kardashian acted like a complete idiot in public. This time, it’s Rob Kardashian who decided to have a grand ol’ time on Twitter the last couple days, slut shaming his alleged former girlfriend Rita Ora because she supposedly cheated on him.

Though he never names her, it’s fairly obvious whom he’s speaking about: the pair has been linked for months and frequently tweet about and post pictures of one another. In his now-deleted posts, he said:

“She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together, I wonder how many she will sleep with now that we apart? But I mean 20?!!! How can a woman who is so busy trying to start her own career have time to be with so many dudes all while in a relationship?!”

Well, she can fuck them and then go to work. That’s how. Later, he tweeted:

“When a woman cheats on you with one man I can live with that. People make mistakes, trust me. I have forgiven numerous times… But when a woman disrespects herself by messing with more than 20 men all while being in a relationship with a Faithful man… I just don’t get how a woman can do that to her body. And your career hasn’t even launched yet. I don’t put up with sloppiness. LOYALTY.”

How can a woman “do that to her body”? I’d hate to have to explain sex to you, Rob, but it’s actually pretty simple, as well as not degrading (unless you want it to be).

While I think it’s always stupid to be passive agressive (or just agressive, in this case) in a public forum like Twitter–seriously, it makes you look like a whiney teenager–I think it’s especially absurd when you’re a famous person and you know that saying such things will cause a lot of strangers to go after one person. In this case, “Rita Whora” began to trend. Cool, right?

Obviously, I don’t advocate cheating; I think hurting somebody’s feelings that way is a really shitty thing to do. But does that mean he should Tweet about it to his nearly 4 million followers, nor does it make sense that’d he’d be a-okay with his ladyfriend cheating on him with just one person (something tells me he’d still tweet about it). Having sex with a lot of people doesn’t make a woman “sloppy,” no matter how widespread that belief is.

Kardashian has since deleted all Ora-related tweets, claiming, “Just so we clear I never once mentioned ‘Rita Ora’ in any of my tweets or even used the word ‘whore’ and I never would. I Respect Women.” He apparently doesn’t realize that saying “I respect women” doesn’t actually mean anything when you just tweeted a whole bunch of slut shaming statements beforehand.

Oh, and all this career advisement for Ora? It comes from a guy who lied about getting into law school and is famous primarily for being rich, acting like an asshole and dancing on a reality TV show. Forgive me if I don’t think she should bother listening.

    I neverEVER thought i’d defend a kardashian but he really seems to be more upset by the cheating, which he has a right to. he went about it the wrong way, since the cheating is gross, not the sex.
    don’t cheat and don’t slut shame, everyone. respect your fellow men and women in every way.

    yea I don’t think he is being all that unreasonable. If a guy cheated on me with 20 girls I’d definetly have some shit to say about him. He genuinely sounds hurt and he does seem to be quite restrained in the description of his cheating ex. He obviously knows he made a mistake sending the tweets which is why he deleted them. He had a weak, insecure moment obviously driven by the feelings of hurt and betrayal (that he rightly had)

    I have to disagree, I don’t think he’s entirely in the wrong. A woman has every right sleep with who she wants, but 20 people makes you dirty. Male, female, whoever, cheating with SO many people is not only horribly disrespectful its disgusting. I don’t think this falls into the general slut shaming of saying if a girl sleeps with multiple people it makes her a slut, and if a guy had the same amount of partners he would be praised. If she did sleep with this many people while in a relationship she is a slut, and I would say the same thing about Rob were the roles reversed.

      It’s more the language in this case that is slut-shaming than the objection to the actual behavior. I don’t think there’s any need to bring in quasi-biological terms like “dirty” to describe behavior that, since you probably wouldn’t object with it outside a relationship, clearly isn’t of itself the problem. Sex is not dirty. Cheating on people is morally and ethically wrong, but physically it’s a nueter. You can say she’s a poor individual without falling back on these terms which just reinforce the idea that a woman’s physical worth is bound up with her chastity.

    • Samantha_Escobar

      Indeed, I am confused as to how 20 people makes you “dirty.” In what way? Physically? Emotionally? Do your toe nails get gross?

      Cheating is a shitty thing to do, absolutely, but as JennyWren said, it’s the phrasing that I have a difficult time understanding the purpose of.

    • meteor_echo

      Sleeping with 20 people if you’re in an open relationship, or not in a relationship at all and everyone consents is not dirty. It’s just sex.
      However, hurting somebody you’re actually pretending to “love” by sleeping with 20 people behind their back makes you a disgusting, vile asshole. Hell, even sleeping with ONE person behind your partner’s back makes you one. So, as much as I don’t like to admit it, the guy is kind of right (minus the slut-shaming). That girl IS someone I’d never want to share the same oxygen with.

      where is everyone getting the word “dirty” from? i dont see that word in any of his quotes

    • tequilamockingbird

      No. Someone who cheats on their partner with twenty people is “cruel,” or “wildly selfish,” or “a narcissistic sociopath.” But “slut” doesn’t belong in serious discourse at all, because it requires an intrinsically sex-negative paradigm. & people who assume that sex is inherently shameful or dirty tend to be way, way less likely to understand what is & isn’t consent. So it’s kind of a really big deal. The end.

    If a guy cheated on me with 20 women, I’d ruin his fucking life.

  • zomg

    The reason why this is “dirty” and that she is a “dirty”…. etc. When a woman is in a relationship… and she cheats and fucks 20 men… this means that if they came inside her… that sperm is inside of her up to 3+days minimum. This means that when Rita comes home to her boyfriend… she has the sperm inside her still….

    Imagen her boyfriend says “omg Rita you never been this wet before, you must be feeling it tonight girl!” lol wth…….

    So thats why shes dirty
