Billy Porter slammed Harry Styles’ Vogue cover again — after previously apologizing for his initial comments — and called Anna Wintour a “bitch.”
During an interview with the Telegraph the “Pose” alum, 53, spoke about his disdain for Vogue using the “Watermelon Sugar” singer as the face of genderfluid and non-binary fashion back in 2020.
“It’s not Harry Styles’ fault that he happens to be white and cute and straight and fit into the infrastructure that way,” Porter, who is openly gay, said.
“I call out the gatekeepers.”
As for Wintour, 73, Porter said that he spoke to the magazine editor-in-chief about how to use Vogue to push forward the “de-gendering of fashion movement” before Styles, 29, was given the cover.
“That bitch said to me at the end, ‘How can we do better?’ And I was so taken off guard that I didn’t say what I should have said,” which was, “Use your power as Vogue to uplift the voices of the leaders of this de-gendering of fashion movement.”
“Six months later, Harry Styles is the first man on the cover.”
“This is politics for me. This is my life. I had to fight my entire life to get to the place where I could wear a dress to the Oscars and not be gunned down. All he has to do is be white and straight.”
