In a recent Instagram live session, trans actress Angelica Ross publicly accused her former co-star, Emma Roberts, of making hurtful transphobic jokes during their time together on the set of American Horror Story (AHS). The incident reportedly took place during the filming of AHS season nine, titled “AHS: 1984,” in 2019.
Ross, who is credited with popularizing the anthology format of the show, recounted the alleged incident in detail. According to her, the incident occurred during a conversation involving herself, Roberts, and director John J. Gray. Ross claims that Roberts, in a semi-joking manner, complained to Gray about Ross’s behavior.
When Gray tried to defuse the situation by saying, “OK, ladies, that’s enough. Let’s get back to work,” Roberts allegedly replied, “Don’t you mean lady?” This remark implied that Ross, who identifies as transgender, was not considered a woman by Roberts.

Ross admitted that she hesitated to address the comment at the time due to concerns about potential repercussions. She feared that speaking up might lead to her being labeled as the problem, as she was aware of a previous instance where someone who had raised concerns about Roberts’ behavior faced negative consequences.
Expressing her frustration, Ross stated, “My blood is boiling because I’m like, ‘If I say something, it’s going to be me that’s the problem.'”
Ross later took to social media to clarify her position, emphasizing that she did not condone violence or harm towards Roberts but wanted her former co-star to be held accountable for her actions. You should also read Kutcher & Kumis’ Shocking Response to Danny Masterson.
