It looks like the Migos are not okay with everyone’s “Bad & Boujee!”

Katy Perry’s performances of “Swish Swish” and “Bon Appétit” from last weekend’s season finale of Saturday Night Live are back in the headlines, but this time it has nothing to do with Katy’s awkwardness — it’s all about Migos’ alleged homophobia.
According to a new report from World Of Wonder (which was later deleted, but not before Uproxx circulated the information), there were supposed to be a lot more drag queens around the table set up for “Bon Appétit,” but they were pulled because Migos refused to perform with them.
According to two anonymous queens (and one SNL staffer) from the show:
Queen #1: “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.”
Queen #2: “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.”
Queen #3:“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. Additionally, Katy Perry didn’t invite any of the queens to the afterparty… So, none of them were allowed in.”
This is not the first bout of homophobia the Migos have been accused of. As you may recall earlier this year they made some controversial statements about iLoveMakonnen’s coming out. However, they quickly pointed out they have a song with Frank Ocean, which means they just could not be homophobic at all (Yes, there’s sarcasm in that statement). Capital Music has come forward to call the queens’ claims “completely false and fabricated.” What do you guys think? Sound off below!
