HOLLYWOOD, CA - MARCH 10: Musician Macy Gray attends the premiere Of Tyler Perry's "The Single Moms Club" at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome on March 10, 2014 in Hollywood, California.

Macy Gray addressed her transphobic comments hurled at the LGBT+ community on the British television show Piers Morgan Uncensored.

“I have nothing but love for the LGBT+ and transgender community and have been a supporter since day one,” Gray said in a statement to Billboard following the backlash. “My statement on Piers Morgan was grossly misunderstood.  I don’t hate anyone.  I respect everyone’s right to feel comfortable in their bodies and live their own truth.”

During the interview on Monday (July 4), Gray claimed that being a woman requires being born with “boobs” and a “vagina” after Morgan stated that “we’re in an era now basically where most public figures are too terrified to say what they think a woman is.”

She later forwarned that her comments might come with some backlash when she added, “I will say this and everyone’s gonna hate me, but as a woman, just because you go change your [body] parts, doesn’t make you a woman, sorry … I know that for a fact. Like if you want me to call you a ‘her,’ I will, ‘cause that’s what you want, but that doesn’t make you a woman just ‘cause I call you a ‘her’ and just because you got a surgery.”
