Drag Race fans and Vittarlovers, unite! RuPaul has nothing but love for Pabllo Vittar.
After a wave of social media posts from Vittar fans wanting RuPaul to acknowledge the Brazilian queen’s history-making performance at Weekend 1 of Coachella 2022, the Drag Race host has now taken to Twitter to squash a beef that never even existed between them. Ru tweeted, “I LOVE & SUPPORT @PablloVittar + Shame on you catty Twitter trolls trying to create a rivalry.”
Shortly after, Vittar took to social media to react to RuPaul’s tweet. “I LOVE YOU MOTHER!” the Brazilian queen wrote.
This past weekend, Vittar made herstory as the first-ever drag queen to perform at Coachella, which was a landmark achievement for the LGBTQ+ community and for drag performers around the world. As a result, fans wanted RuPaul to acknowledge the Brazilian queen and celebrate her success. While Mama Ru wasn’t directly involved in Vittar’s rise to fame and her Coachella set, fans still wanted to see the ultimate Queen of Drag sending some love to Vittar for this legendary achievement.
Vittar has never made it a secret that RuPaul is a major inspiration for her career. Given all the success Vittar has had in the past few years, many fans wanted Ru to acknowledge the Brazilian queen at some point in time. Alas, Vittar herself had already asked her fans – the Vittarlovers – to stop creating a non-existing rivalry between the two queens. Vittar wrote in a tweet shared in 2020:
“Stop [pitting us against each other as rivals]. This is ugly as hell. The fact of following [someone] or not doesn’t take away the respect I have for mother Ru! If I am a drag queen today, it was because her show showed me that it was possible. I love and respect and hope to meet her one day.”
Peace will now hopefully reign in the Queendom. The two most successful drag performers on the planet are openly loving and supporting one another, so it’s time for fans to celebrate this unity and enjoy it.
