"I apologize to Jason for that, because people was laughing and s–t, and you know... I really don't think that's funny," he added. "I saw they were making all the memes and pictures and making fun of him. There's people out there that think I was doing that to be funny, and truthfully I got gay people in my family. I don't give a f–k if you gay or you not, I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this n—a when they are talking about gay people, that's all. You know what I'm saying?"
He went on to compare Collins to bisexual singer frank Ocean.
"That's his business," Rocky said. "I respect men more for coming out. People joke on Frank Ocean a lot but at least he's not out here fronting. It's a lot of people, a lot of motherf*ckers be out here, they be the closet motherf*ckers, you know? I don't respect them. I respect gay men who identify it and who are out with it. I don't have a problem with gay people at all. So it's like, that's his business. It don't concern me. Number one, I barely get to watch basketball like that as it is. Number two, I don't even know who this n*gga is that you talking about. Dead a**. He probably has ten times more money than me but I don't know who he is. We got the Frank Ocean of the NBA now who came out and did what he had to do. Shout-outs to him."
