During the 2013 MTV Video Awards, A$AP Rocky was on stage with Jason Collins – who famously came out to the media this summer – and introduced Macklemore’s “Same Love” which deals with the subject matter of equality and having an open mind towards people of varying sexuality.
Inadvertently, the rapper gave Collins a strange look while they were introducing Macklemore, and it instantly became meme fodder, and spread all over the internet. Wanting to set the record straight, the Harlem rapper apologized to the NBA big man.
Yesterday the NBA, entire sports world, and North America as a whole, was talking about NBA center Jason Collins decision to come out as a gay man while his playing career is still going on. For the most part, the response in the media and across social networks, has been exceedingly positive, and Jason himself has said that he is moved by the support.
