“Thank you, Emma Roberts, for calling me and apologizing, acknowledging that your behavior had not been that of an ally,” Angelica Ross publicly expressed. The day before, during a live broadcast on Instagram, Ross had confessed that he had been the victim of transphobic comments from Roberts in a work environment, the filming of American Horror Story, and the accused, instead of issuing a statement, contacted him directly. with the actress to apologize.
As we published on Wednesday, one of the verbal attacks was in 2019 when they were filming 1984, the season of American horror story set in a summer camp in the eighties. She was in a casual conversation with Roberts when a team member referred to them both as “ladies.” The leading lady stared at Ross and said “don't you mean ma'am?” as if there was only one woman there.
Then, as Ross explained on camera, Roberts covered his mouth and stepped away, like someone who makes a bad joke or a vicious comment and lets its effect hang in the air. “I was processing what he had said,” confessed Ross, whose “blood was boiling” at the time of the comment. “I didn't talk to that bitch for the rest of the time,” he admitted.
This, however, is not the only disrespectful moment that Ross, who has also worked on productions such as Pose, remembers. One day he was on set with the rest of his co-stars and it occurred to him to imitate Cody's accent. “Then Emma copied my voice, laughed and dropped several octaves. “I was frozen,” she explained to her followers. That moment had consequences for her: from that moment on she began to suffer insecurity because of her voice on the filming set.
After receiving an apology three years late from Emma Roberts, who has just premiered the new season of American Horror Story, he wanted to leave her a message: “I will leave the line open to follow up on your desire to do better and support causes of justice.” social with your platform.” Ross's intention seems to be that her former partner not only apologizes but also works to change her attitude, since he said about her that on filming she played "psychological games" with the entire crew.
Of course, this might not yet be the end of Ross' statements, who after apologizing dropped a cryptic comment: “The last three years have been a nightmare in ways that you can only begin to understand. "That's about a series of events that tell a whole different horror story." She also declared that she was ready to “face every demon.”
And what do the fans interpret? That he has more dirty laundry to spill from the environment around Ryan Murphy. The influential screenwriter, director and producer was the one who brought her to the forefront of Hollywood with the hiring of Ross in Pose and American horror story. In turn, the creator of Dahmer also has a reputation for creating toxic work environments with Glee as the best example of him. There were also those who denounced that the trans inclusion of Pose was more for show than reality. Will the shots go this way? We'll have to keep an eye on Ross.
