I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet on social media Just needed a break from everything for a little while I have posted a new video on YouTube ((Link in bio)) it is about my protest experience whilst handing out care packages and my POV of the protest as I feel it’s being depicted differently 100% of Adsense (money I make from the video) will be going to a different range of black lives matter charities so all you have to do is watch the video and the ads and you will be helping Thank you ❤️ We have made an impact but we need to make permanent change this is not a trend we need to keep pushing Will be back on here ASAP ????
The reality star explained that the money made from watching the video and advertisements (Adsense) will be donated in full to a variety of charities that help with the movement.
The video, titled “I wish this wasn’t an ACTUAL video”, shows the protests from the point-of-view of Amber which she says show a different perception of the “carnage” shown in the media.
The 22-year-old model hopes the video shows the peacefulness of the protests which she found to be “very uplifting” and “very special to be a part of”.
Amber also bought care-packages for protesters to “keep their energy going”. The care-packages included bottles of water, packets of sweets, hand-santizers and face-masks.
The vlog showed the star participating in the protests with friends, chanting and singing with the crowds.
The influencer ended the vlog by telling viewers that it is “up to you” to educate yourselves on the racism and draws attention to useful resources to do so in the videos bio.
Fans have been quick to admire the star for using her platform to spread awareness:
“THIS is why she is the first solo winner of love island! LOVE this girl”, one fan wrote.
Another wrote: “I love how she’s using her platform to keep awareness up. A lot better than biased media ❤️❤️❤️❤️”
