The actress received a very serious public accusation from a former filming partner who told all the details of what happened.
Emma Roberts managed to build a solid career in Hollywood without trying to obtain benefits from carrying the last name of one of the greatest actresses of recent decades, her aunt Julia Roberts. Daughter of actor Eric Roberts, the 32-year-old star always stayed away and tried to keep a very low profile.
With more than twenty years of experience in front of the cameras, the young actress was very rarely involved in any news outside of her work, but as they say, no one is safe from her. Recently, a real controversy broke out behind her name after being reported for discrimination.
It was the trans actress Angelica Ross, with whom Emma Roberts worked in the series American Horror Story: 1984, five years ago who made strong accusations against her. According to her, Julia Roberts’ niece had transphobic attitudes at that time.
What Ross said is that the actress was sarcastic when another of the actors in the cast asked them to relax, referring to the two as “ladies”, something that apparently sounded strange to Roberts, who implied that her partner did not It was a woman.
It was through her Instagram account where Angelica Ross, a faithful defender of the rights of the LGBTIQ+ community, publicly denounced Emma Roberts and told how she reacted after her former partner’s ironic look: “I stared at her, I stood still. where I was and she walked away; my blood was boiling, boiling.”
In addition, the 42-year-old artist said why at the time she did not say anything about Roberts’ discriminatory attitude: “If I said something, they would go against me, I would have been the problem. And I know this because before there was someone who exposed to the production about Emma’s behavior and her accusation brought repercussions, so when I saw that it was like ‘I’m done.'”
Emma Roberts’ apology
After her accusations against Emma Roberts became known, Ross once again addressed her followers on her social networks to communicate that the actress called her personally by phone to apologize. “Thank you @RobertsEmma for calling and apologizing, acknowledging that 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 wrote via your X account (ex Twitter).
Prior to Roberts’ apology, the activist expressed her anger against those people who left messages of hate and violence against Emma. “Let’s make something absolutely clear. I appreciate the support, but please don’t joke about violence against Emma,” Ross had asked.
