“Harry Styles, I apologize to you for having your name in my mouth. It’s not about you. The conversation isn’t about you. The conversation is actually deeper than that. It’s about systems of oppression and erasure of people of color that contribute to culture,” the actor reportedly said on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Thursday.

“I’m sorry Harry. I meant no harm. I am a gay man. We love Harry Styles, he’s cute! Porter added.
Harry Styles made headlines after wearing a Gucci dress for Vogue’s December issue. Although he was praised for the bold fashion move, Porter, who has been wearing dresses on red carpets for several years, wasn’t happy about it.

“I changed the whole game. And it’s not ego, it’s just a fact. I was the first to do it and now everyone is doing it. I feel like the fashion industry accepted me because they have to. I’m not necessarily convinced, and here’s why: I created the conversation, and yet Vogue still put Harry Styles, a straight white man , in a dress on her cover for the first time,” Porter reportedly told The Sunday Times last month.

“I’m not trolling Harry Styles, but he’s the one you’re gonna try to use to represent this new conversation? He doesn’t care, he’s just doing it because it’s the right thing to do,” Porter added. .

For Billy Porter, he said, embracing fluid fashion is about more than having a moment on the red carpet.

“It’s politics to me. It’s my life. I had to fight my whole life to get to the place where I could wear a dress at the Oscars and not be shot. All he has to do is be white and straight,” he said.
