Transgender Actress Angelica Ross Criticized After Sharing Story About Meeting DaBaby: He Had His Gaze Stuck On Me + Later Responds To Backlash: Men Will Be Attracted To Trans Women
She tweeted earlier this week,
“Story time…I actually met DaB*by earlier this year. Flew home to ATL and had his gaze stuck on me as I walked towards him because he was standing next to my limo driver. He looked at the sign, then back at me, “Miss Ross” he read aloud. I just laughed & left with my driver.”

Her story comes after DaBaby was pulled from several festivals for controversial remarks he made about the LGBT community and those battling HIV/AIDS.
Her mentions were full of skepticism from fans who seemingly questioned if the incident actually happened and others who questioned why she told the story.
She later replied to the criticism and wrote,
“One thing folks know about ME…I don’t have to lie to kick it! I don’t make up stories unless I’m being paid to thru SAG-AFTRA for film & television”
When asked what the purpose of the story was, and what she was trying to say about DaBaby, she replied:
“It’s not what it says about him, but what it says about me and other trans women. We don’t ALL entertain these men & their nonsense. The universe was speaking to me. Had NOTHING to do with him. The moral of every story doesn’t center around y’all is the point.”
She also responded to criticism she received in her Instagram comments about her appearance.
“Folk have been commenting under my IG photos saying “you can tell it’s a dude, he wasn’t looking at her”…and that is ALSO the point. Choosing not to date trans women is one thing, denying your attraction to us is another. On my BUMMIEST day these dudes be thirsty for it.”
She went on to tweet,
“People proving my point & then some in the comments Like it’s WILD. I’m being told both I look like a dude AND that no one cares, while the reality is y’all expected a messy trans story but got plain dry FACTS. We are women. FACT. Men will be attracted to trans women”
