In a recent Instagram Live, according to screen recordings, Angelica said, "Almost every actor on the set of American Horror Story: 1984 was irritated" by "Miss ER."

In another moment, Angelica recalled a moment where she was talking to Emma. "She goes, 'John, Angelica's being mean.' I know she's not being for real," she began.

It's possible that Angelica is referring to John J. Gray, an executive producer on the season.

"John is like, 'Okay ladies, that's enough, let's get back to work,'" Angelica continued. Emma then allegedly replied, "Don't you mean lady?"

Emma then allegedly walked away, to which Angelica continued, "My blood is boiling. Boiling. Because if I say something, it's gonna be me that's the problem. And I know this because there was someone who spoke up about what she was doing, and they got repercussions from it. Not her, they did."

"So when I saw that happening, I was just like, I am done. I didn't speak to that bitch the entire time after that. We had scenes together, and I never spoke to her. She said to me that she could feel the energy coming off of me," Angelica alleged. "Bitch, don't play me. You've been playing mind games with everybody on this set, and everybody's been waiting for the moment that you would get me."

Angelica then further alleged in a tweet that Emma copied Angelica's voice by dropping it by "several octaves," leading her to be "self conscious about [her] voice on set after that."

Yesterday, Angelica further alleged that Ryan Murphy ghosted her after saying he'd go ahead with her idea of a season of AHS starring Black women — even after Angelica had worked on two AHS seasons and the entirety of Pose.
