In light of Angelica Ross’ allegations of Emma Roberts’ transphobic comment and otherwise disruptive behavior on the set of “American Horror Story: 1984,” another user on the X platform reposted a portion of a 2019 video in which Ross joins co-stars Billie Lourd, Cody Fern and Gus Kenworthy to watch the televised premiere of their “American Horror Story” season. Roberts is notably absent, its caption points out.
At one point in the video, Ross shouts out LGBTQ+ fans of “AHS” and continues, “We are watching for all the transphobia on set.” She then laughs at the notion that she and Lourd will personally handle transphobic incidents before simply advertising “AHS: 1984.” The fact that she thought to mention on-set transphobia back then now takes on a new meaning given her account of this time Roberts explicitly misgendered her.
After her clip went viral, Ross further addressed the situation on the X platform and shared that Roberts apologized to her. “Thank you @RobertsEmma for calling and apologizing, recognizing your behavior was not that of an ally,” she wrote. “I will leave the line open to follow up on your desire to do better and support social justice causes with your platform.
