‘that is not the T! calm that shit the fuck down.
‘It’s a god damn show. A fucking show about mostly men in dresses. And in my case, a beautiful woman from St Tropez – I don’t like seeing hate. ‘It’s tacky and nobody deserves it.

Other stars have also slammed the bigoted portion of Drag Race’s fandom.
Season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez called the fans ‘psychotic’ in a Reddit AMA.
‘White queens are always the favorite. Black queens deserve hateful tweets. Queens should be stoned or tarred and feathered even if they deserved the win. ie.: Nina Bonina Brown or me.’
