RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars producers sued an anonymous leaker on Thursday (15 February).

Primarily on Reddit, Instagram, and Twitter, the person posted clips and images from unaired episodes on social media. The user operated under the name RealityTVLeaks.

Per the lawsuit, the producers at World of Wonder Productions provided numerous examples of leaks. They include costume reveals, challenges, and even the names of future eliminated contestants.

It’s not the first time World of Wonder sent notices to this user. However, after they made the Instagram account private, it made it harder to track the copyright infringements.

Now they are suing to unmask the person behind RealityTVLeaks and also for damages.

The damages the producers are seeking are $150,000 per infringed episode and $25,000 per violation or the ‘actual damages and Defendants’ profits’.

When asked about the spoilers by another user, RealityTVLeaks answered: ‘I’ll be here every Thursday with bomb leaks to keep ya quenched until the episode lol.’

Drag Race Season 10 recently revealed its premiere date and first teaser.
