A$AP Rocky Apologizes To Jason Collins For VMA Awkwardness, Says He’s Not Homophobic


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 shit, 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… Truthfully I got gay people in my family. I don’t give a fuck 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?”

    Uuummm..ok bra.

    No, he’s not homophobic. He’s just not well-spoken.

  • nic_1989

    wow – this guy was seriously uncomfortable, even standing next to Jason he looks nervous as fuck, dudes probably scared of what his peers think of him, but he defiantly cant be that secure with his own sexuality to act like that. maybe Azeala Banks was right.

  • Kieran

    This is what passes for talent in America today. Sad.

  • Mr. E. Jones


    Maybe he was attracted to him, and that brought about his discomfort. We’ve all been in that situation–hot guy turns us into blithering idiot.

    That said, I don’t think he said anything anti-gay, or homophobic. As tardis wrote–inarticulate. He should be embarrassed for that, because he is a rapper, and words are suppose to be his thing.

    What’s wrong with his teeth?

  • Teleny

    Rocky has been the subject of speculation regarding his sexual orientation. I Supose that’s why he got so nervous or thought someone was trying to make a point.

  • balehead

    Let him learn people….don’t win the battle and lose the war…

  • WhyteRabbit

    it’s funny that this is like the third separate story i have read in the past 3 months or so where this $ap is defending words and claiming not to be homophobic and blah blah blah… oddly enough… this is the ONLY type of news i see about him. hmm. i wonder what that might imply…
