Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it yAngelica Ross says that Emma Roberts misgendered her and created an unwelcome working environment on the set of ‘AMERICAN HORROR STORY: 1984’.


In an Instagram Live video, she told the viewers that Roberts once complained that Ross was being mean to someone named John on the sets. “And John is like, ‘OK ladies, that’s enough. Let’s get back to work.’ And she then looks at me and goes, ‘Don’t you mean lady?’” Ross said. “I am looking at her dead a** in the camera and I am like “What the f**k did you just say?”

Ross added that as she stood there trying to process what Roberts said, her blood was boiling. She added that at the time she did not mention anything about this incident because she was afraid everyone would think she was the problem.

Emma Roberts has been accused of creating a hostile work environment by her American Horror Story co-star Angelica Ross. Roberts first debuted on season 3 (Coven) of the anthology series, which tells a different self-contained story every season, going on to appear in seasons 4 (Freak Show), 7 (Cult), 8 (Apocalypse), 9 (1984) and the upcoming season 12 (Delicate). Ross made her American Horror Story debut in 1984 after working with co-creator Ryan Murphy on the show Pose, going on to appear in season 10 (Double Feature).

Ross, who is a trans woman, details a moment on set when she and Roberts had conflict and they were told “OK ladies, that’s enough.” Ross describes Roberts coyly turning away while saying “don’t you mean lady?” Ross, whose blood was “boiling” but who had seen others receive “repercussions” for speaking out against Roberts’ on-set behavior, elected not to speak to her for the rest of the shoot.

“So we had scenes together and I never spoke to her. She could feel the energy coming off of me. She’d be like ‘Are you okay?’ and I’d be like, ‘Hmm.’ B*** don’t blame me. You’ve been playing mind games with everybody on the set,” Ross said.

Angelica Ross joined the cast of American Horror Story in the ninth season. She portrayed the character of Donna Chambers, a psychiatric researcher with a fascination for serial killers and posing as “Nurse Rita” at Camp Redwood. In February, Ryan Murphy confirmed her return to the following installment, Double Feature. Ross starred in both parts of the season. The first one was titled “Red Tide” where she played The Chemist, in Provincetown. In the second part, titled “Death Valley” Ross portrayed Theta, a telekinetically gifted hybrid of human and extraterrestrial.
