ASAP Rocky says he is not the least bit homophobic citing gay people in his own family, according to an interview with Stashed.
But critics thought otherwise when the “Goldie” rapper appeared to be uncomfortable when standing next to openly gay NBA player Jason Collins during the MTV VMAs.
The two were chosen to introduce Macklemore who was set to perform his Gay rights anthem “Same Love.”
“The only way things change is when you stand up for what you believe in,” Collins said during the awards show.
A$ap first pubbed rap associate ASAP Ferg’s “Trap Lord” album as “in store right now” before introducing the “Thrift Shop” rapper.
“The next artist is a good friend of mine,” he continued.
“He stand up for everything he believe in as far as everybody being equal, color… homosexuality,” ASAP added as he pointed at Collins.
ASAP said he felt bad about the way his mannerisms came off after watching footage of the show and personally issued an apology to Collins.
But ASAP did find the whole situation awkward.
“I don’t give a f--- if you gay or you not, I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this n---- when they are talking about gay people, that’s all. You know what I’m saying?” Stashed quoted the Harlem rapper as saying.
