‘Fashion Killa’ MC A$AP Rocky left many an eyebrow raised two weeks ago, when he appeared on the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards 2013 to fulfil presenting duties alongside openly gay basketball player Jason Collins.
Why eyebrows were raised? Well, when Collins took the opportunity to call for equality for the LGBTQ community, the usually cool, calm and collected Rapper suddenly appeared to become very uncomfortable, seemingly ‘side eyeing’ the athlete.
Now, in an interview with ‘The Stashed‘, Rocky has explained that things were not as they seemed, apologising to Collins for any offence he may have caused.
His words below…
“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. I didn’t really notice it until I got home and saw it. I apologize to Jason for that, because people was laughing and s–t, 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 f–k 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?”
