Jason Collins recently became the first active male professional athlete in a major North American team sport to come out publicly as gay. Fittingly so, Collins was invited to introduce Macklemore and Ryan Lewis prior to the performance of their same-sex marriage single "Same Love" at the MTV Video Music Awards. A$AP Rocky was invited to introduce the video alongside Collins, but acted inappropriately during the presentation. He laughed while Collins spoke about equal rights and even pointed in Collins' direction when he used the word "homosexuality" to introduce Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. In a recent interview with The Stashed, A$AP Rocky apologized for his actions at the MTV Video Music Awards saying: “I’m mad that my facial expressions was like that because I’m not homophobic at all, and that whole thing just came off real homophobic,” said Rocky. “I didn’t really notice it until I got home and saw it. I apologize to Jason for that, because people was laughing and shit, and you know… I really don’t think that’s funny. I saw they were making all the memes and pictures and making fun of him. There’s people out there that think I was doing that to be funny, and truthfully I got gay people in my family. I don’t give a fuck if you gay or you not, I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this nigga when they are talking about gay people, that’s all. You know what I’m saying?”
