You Sure? A$AP Rocky Apologizes To Jason Collins, Says He’s Not Homophobic
I know I’m not the only one who’s noticed that A$AP Rocky’s been acting a fool pretty much the entire year. There were his comments about darker skinned, black women wearing red lipstick, just a couple of weeks ago he was seen slapping a female fan and then during the MTV Awards, audiences thought he was throwing slight shade to Jason Collins and his sexuality by the weird facial expressions he was making while the two were on stage together introducing rapper Macklemore.
If you don’t remember the strangely, awkward moment, take a look at it again in the video below.
Immediately, people assumed that A$AP really did have a problem with Jason Collins despite his words to the contrary.
In an interview with Stashed, A$AP explained that he’s actually not homophobic at all and apologized to Jason Collins for how it might have appeared on television:
“I’m mad that my facial expressions was like that because I’m not homophobic at all, and that whole thing just came off real homophobic,” said Rocky. “I didn’t really notice it until I got home and saw it. I apologize to Jason for that, because people was laughing and Isht, and you know… I really don’t think that’s funny. 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 Fawk if you gay or you not, I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this N***a when they are talking about gay people, that’s all. You know what I’m saying?”
Once again, A$AP was doing well all the way up until that second to last sentence. You found it odd that they had you standing next to him? The only point was about unity, bringing people who would seem like polar opposites together. Apparently A$AP didn’t get that.
