Migos are not strangers to homophobia claims. The trio received a nice/nasty drag earlier this year after making comments about fellow Atlanta rapper iLoveMakkonen, who had recently come out as gay. Migos joined Katy Perry for an awkward Saturday Night Live performance of Bon Appetite which fueled the latest homophobia claims.
The story, initially posted by World of Wonder, has been deleted but not before sparking interest. World of Wonder or WOW is the production company that employed the two of the Drag Queens for Katy's SNL performance.
One is quoted as saying: “I was one of the performers on that table with them the whole time, during the rehearsal for 3 days. On the day of the filming, when I got there, I was told to leave. I wasn’t on the set at the time, but we were asking what happened. They said it was because Migos doesn’t feel comfortable with having drag queens there.
The other drag queen is quoted as saying: “I heard it from the stylist. They changed the queens out in the ‘Bon Appétit’ number, and they didn’t seem too thrilled during rehearsal either, with us there.”
How much truth are in these statments? Another drag queen that performed with Perry and Migos, Brita Filter, said there was no drama.
It was incredible performing with Katy Perry. She wanted to have all walks of life at the table. I was happy to represent all the drag queens. There was numerous changes throughout the rehearsal process. They chose to have only people of color at the table. There was no drama with Migos.
Since then reps from Katy Perry and Migos camp have come forward to say those claims are completely fabricated.
