Angelica Ross alleges Emma Roberts made transphobic comments to her

Yesterday, Angelica Ross shocked American Horror Story fans when she claimed co-star Emma Roberts made transphobic comments to her on set.

In a video shared to social media, Ross recounted the incident between her and Roberts that allegedly took place while they were filming the AHS anthology series together.

"I’m standing in front of Emma, talking to her like this, and she’s in front of me, her back against the mirror. She goes, 'John, Angelica’s being mean,'” she claimed, seemingly referring to AHS director John J. Gray.

Ross claimed that Gray then said, “Okay, ladies, you know, that’s enough. Let’s get back to work.” 

The actress continued, “[Roberts] then looks at me, and she goes, ‘Don’t you mean lady?’ And she turns around like this and covers her mouth. I’m staring at her, looking her dead ass in the [camera], and I’m like, trying to process the f--- she just said.”



"My blood is boiling because I’m like, ‘If I say something, it’s going to be me that’s the problem.’ I know this because there was someone who spoke up about what she was doing and they got repercussions from it. Not her, they did,” explained Ross. 

Additionally, she says she did not speak to Roberts for the remainder of filming. 

A day after her experience went viral online, Ross says she received an apology from Roberts. Ross shared some details about the call the two had on X, writing: 

“Thank you @RobertsEmma for calling and apologizing, recognizing your behavior was not that of an ally,” she shared on Wednesday. “I will leave the line open to follow up on your desire to do better and support social justice causes with your platform.”
