When she learned about Sulli's suicide.

"It was just so hard... I felt really angry. I was angry at myself, too, because Sulli and I talked a few weeks before. It’s like, Man, if I just sent another text, what could have happened?"

If you're gonna comment something negative on this article, just don't. Because it perpetuates this cycle Amber herself said makes her feel worse about herself. The same one that took a lot of beloved stars. So while you may have disagreeing thoughts, please keep it to yourself.

If someone you didn't know was saying things behind your back, you'd be upset right? Probably angry. But when hundreds or thousands of faceless people are saying it, I'm pretty sure it hurts, no matter what you tell yourself. Even if celebrities sign up for this, they don't sign up to be belittled for everything that makes them human.
