Actress Emma Roberts was blasted by her “American Horror Story” co-star, transgender Angelica Ross for an alleged transphobic slight on set causing Roberts to later reportedly call Ross and apologize.

“Ross, who acted alongside Roberts during the 2019 season ‘American Horror Story: 1984,’ claimed that Roberts denied Ross was a woman while they were both filming a scene together,” Fox News reported.
“The trans actor made the allegation in a recent Instagram Live video. Ross claimed not to come forward with the story at the time because someone else mentioned Roberts’ supposedly bullying behavior and suffered ‘repercussions’ for calling it,” the media outlet continued.
Roberts has been a regular character in the horror franchise. The latest season dropped on Tuesday, the same day Ross, who was born a biological male, aired the allegations against Roberts. The new season of the show is called, “American Horror Story: Delicate.” Roberts plays the lead again.
Ross accused Roberts of transphobic behavior and recounted an alleged incident on set where Roberts and director John J. Gray were having a conversation where Roberts semi-jokingly complained to Gray that Ross was being mean to her. Gray tried to lighten the atmosphere by saying “Okay ladies, that’s enough. Let’s get back to work.”
Roberts allegedly replied, “Don’t you mean lady?”

“And she turns around like this and covers her mouth and goes back here, but can’t see I’m looking at her deada** in the camera like ‘What the f*** did you just say?’” Ross then recounted
“And I’m standing there looking her deada** in the damn thing and I’m like trying to process the f*** she just said, and I’m like – I’m standing there and she walked away – my blood is boiling. Boiling,” the trans diva fumed.
“I’m like, if I say something it’s gonna be me that’s the problem, and 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,” Ross added.
How ironic that Emma Roberts is only punished for implying Angelica Ross is not a lady because he can never be one.
No one would care if she said another woman wasn’t a lady.
His reaction & the calls for her cancellation just show he & all his “allies” know he is a man.

“So when I saw that happening I was just like, ‘I’m done. I’m done.’ I didn’t speak to that b*tch the entire time after that,” the transgender stated.
Ross also claimed that Roberts yelled at directors and attempted to compare salaries with her co-stars.
“She was like, ‘Are you okay? You haven’t been talking.’ I’m like, ‘Mmhmm,’ Cause b*tch, don’t play me. You’ve been playing mind games with everybody on the set and everybody’s been waiting for the moment that you would get me,’” People reported.
“She was trying to make it very clear that she was number one on the call sheet, and she was the one in charge,” Ross said of incidents that reportedly occurred four years ago.
Evidently, Roberts crawled to Ross and apologized.
“Thank you @RobertsEmma for calling and apologizing, recognizing your behavior was not that of an ally. I will leave the line open to follow up on your desire to do better and support social justice causes with your platform,” Ross ungenerously posted to X.

Good. Stop gaslighting women into the acceptance of men in our identity.

‘Misgendering’ – the paper cut of oppression. A non-crime invented by attention-seeking narcissists. He is a man, and nobody is requires to pretend otherwise.
