After an awkward moment while on stage next to openly gay NBA player Jason Collins during the 2013 VMAs, rapper A$AP Rocky has apologized to Collins by releasing the following statement below:
“Im mad that my facial expressions was like that because I’m not homophobic at all, and that whole thing just came off real homophobic.”
“I apologize to Jason for that, because people was laughing and shit, and you know… I really don’t think that’s funny,” Rocky told The Stashed.
“I saw they were making all the memes and pictures and making fun of him. There’s people out there that think I was doing that to be funny, and truthfully I got gay people in my family. I don’t give a [expletive] if you gay or you not, I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this [expletive] when they are talking about gay people, that’s all. You know what I’m saying?”
If he’s only apologizing to put the gay community at ease..then I’m going to be throwing some shade at Rocky. I mean come now, he was on stage looking like a catholic school boy who’s been touched so many times by those other freaky Senior guys. And with his permed hair so laid back. I’m just saying!
