Migos have landed themselves in hot water (again) over comments that have been labeled homophobic. Over the weekend Katy Perry performed two songs on SNL, one of which was ‘Bon Appetit’, which has a guest feature from Migos who appeared with her. It’s now being reported that the performance was meant to feature a number of drag queens dancing, but three queens were removed at Migos request.
One of the removed drag queens told World of Wonder (in a now deleted article), ““I was one of the performers on that table with them the whole time, during the rehearsal for three 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.”
Another drag queen is also quoted, ““I work at SNL and the rumors are true! Migos held up rehearsal because they ‘weren’t comfortable with the drag queens’ being there. There were initially more drag queens on the set for that song, but after Migos threw a fit, Katy Perry’s team removed some of the queens from the performance.”
While nothing’s been confirmed yet, it’s not a good look for Migos who not too long agao had to backtrack homophobic comments they made about iLoveMakonnen. As yet there’s been no comment from Migos, Katy Perry, or SNL.
