A male actor who identifies as a woman claimed that actress Emma Roberts misgendered him on the set of the popular television show "American Horror Story" and went on an expletive-laden tirade about the alleged incident on social media.
Angelica Ross is a 42-year-old actor who began taking hormones and transitioning genders at the age of 19. Ross was working with Roberts, 32, on the popular horror-drama series and claimed that Roberts was transphobic toward him during a minor spat on the set.
According to AV Club, Roberts and director John Gray were engaged in a conversation when Roberts was described as semi-jokingly complaining that Ross was being mean to her.
The director allegedly tried to defuse the situation by saying, “Okay, ladies, that’s enough. Let’s get back to work,” to which Roberts allegedly replied, “Don’t you mean lady?" referring to herself as the only biological woman in earshot.
Ross made the accusations during an Instagram live video in which he described becoming enraged at Roberts while she allegedly disguised her laughter.
“I’m looking at her dead ass in the camera like, ‘What the f*** did you just say?' And I’m standing there looking her dead ass in the damn thing, and I’m, like, trying to process the f*** she just say. ... As she walked away, my blood is boiling. Boiling,” Ross said.
"I didn't speak to that bitch the entire time after that. We had scenes together, and I never spoke to her."

Ross also released a series of emails from producer Ryan Murphy that discussed a version of "American Horror Story" that would be "starring black women." Upset that the project did not materialize, Ross posted supposed screenshots of the exchange.
"Remember your idea about a HORROR season starring black women? Well, I’m doing it. Not sure of the story yet, but we will start a writers' room in the fall. Along with you, who are the four women I should get?" Murphy allegedly wrote in an email.
“YAAAAAASSSSS!” Ross responded before suggesting a list of actresses who may or may not have been actual females.
Ross later claimed on social media that his response was "left on read" [sic] by the producer, while including a video about "white people who went out of their way to present 'diversity.'"
Roberts' representatives had not responded to requests for comments.
