In response to this Tweet from RuPaul, occasional RuPaul's Drag Race judge Lady Bunny has unleashed a scathing invective against her one-time pal. From Lady Bunny's Facebook page:
BOYCOTT RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE AND LOGO! Can you believe they actually allowed this slanderous statement to be said on the air about me? And then tweeted it to zillions of followers to quadruple my pain? This is wholly insensitive to the fact that I may indeed lack class because of my humble upbringings at the foot of the Appalachians in Chattanooga, Tennessee. So it wasn't a cosmopolitan hot spot that forms the backdrops of fashion shoots. Not everyone can be a supermodel, RuPaul. It just so happens that lower income families from backwards regions develop poor eating habits — so I may grunt and burp a little while I overeat. But if you must know, my weight issues stem from traumatic childhood experiences. From the age of 11, I was repeatedly humiliated in sexual situations: My father, my brother, my sister and even the family dog — NONE OF THEM WOULD DO IT WITH ME! Thankfully it was before cellphones, but the whole neighborhood got to see me with dog food smeared all over my @ss as even starving strays ran away from me whimpering in disgust. So I still attempt to eat my pain away. This is classist and fat-shaming and making light of mental health issues by a overly thin, wealthy model-type queen who can afford pricey therapists. Not to mention that any reference to class or any of her affected, grand manners are a slap in the face to an entire nation struggling to get back on its feet after recession and a mortgage crisis. And how does this heartless monster rub in the fact that we're experiencing the worst unemployment since the Great Depression? With her callous cry of "You'd better work!" It's high time this monster was knocked off her high horse once and for all before more irreparable damage is caused by her unparalleled cruelty.
If you're waiting for a Rupology, Bunny, don't hold your breath.
