A$AP Rocky has apologized to Jason Collins for what many perceived to be a super awkward moment at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
In an interview with The Stashed, he went on record to say that he isn’t homophobic and the whole incident was blown out of proportion. He says:
“I’m mad that my facial expressions was like that because I’m not homophobic at all, and that whole thing just came off real homophobic,” he explained. “I didn’t really notice it until I got home and saw it.”
“I apologize to Jason for that, because people was laughing and s–t, and you know… I really don’t think that’s funny,” he added. “I saw they were making all the memes and pictures and making fun of him. There’s people out there that think I was doing that to be funny, and truthfully I got gay people in my family. I don’t give a f–k if you gay or you not, I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this n—a when they are talking about gay people, that’s all. You know what I’m saying?”
It’s nice to see A$AP taking some sort of accountability for his actions, even if they were unintentional.
