Brutally raped woman shocked society with heartbreaking message on the internet

Instead of holding back all her emotions after being raped, this activist decided to immediately share her story with the world.


According to Newsner, 27-year-old feminist activist Amber Amour posted a picture of herself with tears running down her face soon after she claims she was raped in a shower.

The activist was visiting South Africa while working on her "Stop Rape, Educate" campaign, which promotes sexual consent over all.

Amour claimed she was raped in a hostel in South Africa, as a man forced her to her knees and violently assaulted her, even though she was screaming for him to stop.

Although it got removed due to 'community guidelines violation,' the Instagram post went viral and spread out by media across the world.

The Instagram post showed the 27-year-old New Yorker while still sitting on the bathroom floor and tears streaming down her face.

'I immediately knew that I couldn’t keep what had happened a secret. Here I was, telling survivors every single day that they should speak up, I knew I had to practice what I preached. So the first thing I did was take a picture and write a post, describing what had happened,' she wrote.

She also captioned a graphic and disturbing description of the events, claiming that she had passed out during the experience.


The feminist activist also claimed that these experiences always leave the victims feeling 'shame, disgust, and suffering.'

In an interview with the Huffington Post, she talked about the removal of her post and how this could be promoting "rape culture."

"I feel like they are supporting rape culture by silencing me. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of pornographic accounts on Instagram depicting sex with children, rape, and violence against women. I simply told a story, my story, and they erased it from their history," she explained.

The Huffington Post contacted Instagram for comment and the site quickly reinstated the caption, which they say was removed in error.
