“Thank you [Emma Roberts] for calling and apologizing, recognizing your behavior was not that of an ally,” Ross wrote in a Wednesday social media post. “I will leave the line open to follow up on your desire to do better and support social justice causes with your platform.”
On Tuesday, Ross unleashed a series of tweets criticizing their AHS showrunner, creator, and boss, Ryan Murphy, claiming that the mega-producer “left [her] on read” regarding a potential AHS season starring four Black actresses, including Ross.
At the end of her Twitter screed, Ross teased that she would also detail “the transphobic remarks my co-star said to my face, and the racism I complained about on set that they said was ‘free speech.’”
Eventually, Ross went live on Instagram to share her experience of transphobia from Roberts on the set of American Horror Story: 1984. In the anecdote, Ross claims that while they were filming a scene together, Roberts made a transphobic remark directed at her, allegedly implying that there was only one woman present on set at that time.
“My blood is boiling. Boiling,” said Ross. “I’m like, ‘If I say something, it’s going to 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.”
