Ruby Rose Fires Back At Haters, Educates Them On Her DJ Career

Ruby Rose has decided to break the silence and weigh in on online haters who have taken to their keyboards to fire shots at the actress and model's DJ careers since it came to prominence in recent weeks. The EDM community was lit up with a buzz after it became aware that Rose, famous for her role on "Orange Is The New Black," was also pursuing a DJ career. Despite the fact that she's been working as a DJ since 2009, social media sites were filled with negative comments from detractors who felt she represented everything wrong with mainstream EDM.

The up and coming DJ fired back in an Instagram post, making the point that women in EDM face challenges that their male counterparts don't have to deal with while reminding and/or educating these online attackers that she's not by any means new to DJing. The Australian DJ has been touring since 2009 with acts like NERVO, Skrillex, Calvin Harris and more.

"Female DJS cop it at the best of times. But it doesn't make it less frustrating. 'Oh NOW SHE WANTS TO DJ' the odds are if you have JUST started noticing a chick DJ get any form of recognition it's not their first day on the job. Love or hate my music, love or hate my abilities in any field love or hate my Instagram.. But let's get one thing straight. Know your facts. Don't just comment on people's pages endlessly with your negative judgmental shit. The people who bitch the loudest are ALWAYS the least important. It's just a google away, but before you may have heard of me, I still existed. I started DJing in 2009. I did the festival circuits with @nervomusic @erickmorillo @skrillex @calvinharris I toured with @nickiminajand @isthatjessiej as the support act.. I released a track with Gary go.. I been doing this.. It's old news.. I didn't wake up last week and buy a laptop. Everything I do is a result of hard work and I'm proud of it.. Even if I had some less than desirable music choices and on stage antics in 2009"

Rose's stance on female DJs and sexism in the industry come after one of EDM's most high profile girl groups, Krewella, addressed the issue in a recent interview with FORBES.

“It’s important to recognize that there is still certain stereotypes. There are so many rumors that go around still–if there’s a woman that’s successful it’s because… she slept with this person or she bought her way into this rather than her just having talent.” - Jahan Yousef
