article imageVideo: A$AP Rocky apologizes to Jason Collins

By Layne Weiss     Sep 10, 2013 in Entertainment
Philadelphia - When rapper A$AP Rocky stood beside NBA star Jason Collins at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, some people said he appeared to be "real homophobic." Even Rocky has noticed this himself and has issued an apology.
"I'm mad that my facial expressions was like that because I'm not homophobic at all and that whole thing came as real homophobic. I didn't really notice until I got home and saw it. I apologize to Jason for that, because people was laughing...you know, I really don't think that's funny. " Rocky told STASHED at the Budweiser's Made In America Festival. "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 fuck if you gay or you not, I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this nigga when they are talking about gay people, that’s all. You know what I’m saying?”
"I'm a heterosexual man," Rocky said in February 2012."I've never been gay a day of my life. I used to be homophobic, but as I got older, I realized that wasn't the way to do things. I don't discriminate against anybody for their sexual preference, for their skin color... That's immature. Not only that, not only do I know the difference between that, but I'm wise enough to know that that's just stupid and wrong, and I'm just trying to spread that to everybody. Yo, you don't have to worry about what he's doing. If he's gay, that's his business. Why does it matter? If you gay, why do you care? I don't give a fuck about gay people. I don't! I don't give a fuck about straight people. I don't care. It don't matter to me. I'm getting bitches, I'm getting money - not to get into my Hip Hop form, but that's just what it is. I'm just trying to set the bar that you can do what the fuck you want to do because the world is yours."
NBA star Jason Collins came out at the end of April, 2013.
Just last month, WWE star Darren Young, real name Fred Rossen announced he was gay, telling The Today Show's Matt Lauer that Jason Collins' was a big inspiration in him being able to be so open about his sexuality.
