Yeah, I don't get why so many people feel the need to downplay what she went through as a kid. Like saying she probably wasn't even molested like she said or that she's actually luck to have been in foster care because all her needs were taken care of by the government. The gorl ate road meth ffs. And she was separated from all 3 of her siblings, 2 of whom she never saw again. Then they got her hopes up and placed her with he parents again for a probationary period, which obviously failed, so she was shipped off again. That would be traumatic for any child. Just because she wasn't literally tortured by any of her foster parents or group home staff doesn't mean "it wasn't that bad".She has made videos about it. And is it something you would have enjoyed - or want for any kids in your life? Amber's a piece of shit human but parlaying having such drug-addicted parents you are taken away from them into foster care care into a sort of summer camp experience is a reach.
Should she be using her messed up childhood to avoid responsibility for her actions and to deflect criticism? No. But admitting she had it rough when she was young doesn't mean you're excusing her abhorrent behavior in the present. There's no need to minimize what she went through -- you can be abused/neglected as a kid AND be a cunt as an adult, you know?
