After being accused of transphobia, Emma Roberts issued a sincere apology, which has garnered public appreciation from Angelica Ross.

It all began when Roberts shared a meme that was considered transphobic, sparking backlash from the LGBTQ+ community. The meme featured a photo of an individual whose gender identity was ambiguous, accompanied by a caption about people being unable to determine if they are a man or a woman. Upon realizing the insensitivity of the post, Roberts quickly deleted it and issued an apology.
In her apology, Roberts emphasized her regret for sharing the meme and admitted she was unaware of the implications and harm it could cause for her transgender friends and the larger community. She stated, “I’m so sorry for any pain I may have caused. Please know that it was purely ignorance, but I promise to do better. I truly mean that.”
Ross responded by tweeting about her gratitude for Roberts’ candid response and her commitment to do better. She acknowledged that everyone makes mistakes and emphasized the importance of learning from them. Ross wrote, “Thank you Emma Roberts for making this authentic apology and understanding that what’s happening right now is really about people’s lives and well-being.”
By expressing her gratitude publicly, Angelica Ross aims to demonstrate the power of sincere apologies and understanding in combating ignorance and fostering a more inclusive society.
