Monica Beverly Hillz Thinks Ex Josh Seiter Was Behind His Own Death Hoax

Earlier this week, the Bachelorette star was presumed dead after his Instagram account shared a statement about his passing, which he now claims was posted by a hacker.

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8 star Monica Beverly Hillz has issued an official statement about her ex-boyfriend Josh Seiter, a former contestant on The Bachelorette, who was presumed to be dead following a statement shared via his official Instagram account on Monday, August 28.

On Tuesday, August 29, Seiter returned to social media with a video revealing that he was alive. He claimed that a hacker had shared the original statement about his death and that he had been logged out of his Instagram. The Bachelorette star apologized to anyone who was concerned.

It didn’t take long for fans to speculate that Seiter had allegedly faked his own death to get attention – which is a thought that Hillz is also contending with. Following the revelation that Seiter was alive, Hillz shared a statement via Instagram reacting to this whole situation.

“I’m happy to hear he’s alive, but I’m so angry at the situation,” the Drag Race star wrote. “It’s infuriating that so many people who care about Josh have been deeply [affected] by this. Everyone deserves grace, but unfortunately, I can’t help but think that he was able to pull this stunt as a cisgender white man ­– acting like he was dead – when so many of my sisters and trans women of color have been brutally murdered this year and the same love and support isn’t show to them.”

She continued:

“Men who do this sh*t are usually trying to compensate for some insecurity or darkness inside them. The dolls know all too well that these men are dangerous and I saw the red flags fast a mile away. To keep it frank: ban his Instagram account. He needs to get help or lock his ass up. Let this example speak volumes to the girls who already know – keep those men who seek our fame and attention far [away] from us. I’ve learned my lesson and now I’m only on to bigger and better things.”

“I’m excited to just come back from LA working with some amazing producers and artists on a project soon to be announced, as well as being involved in activism and organizing as a community advisory board member of transformations,” Hillz concluded. “The special guest at liberation camp for trans BIPOC leaders in the Ozarks at the end of September and being one of the keynote speakers at this November’s national Dolls Are Thriving summit for trans women of color.”

In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Seiter shot down the claims that he faked his own death.

“Those are all ridiculous accusations made up by somebody with nothing better to do with their time,” he told the publication. “As a mental health advocate, issues of suicide are very sensitive for me. To suggest that I would orchestrate a death post around that issue is sickening. I have dedicated the last eight years of my life blogging and raising awareness about mental health, and I will continue to do so. Regardless of what my detractors have to say.”
