Mayhem Miller responded to fans sending hateful messages after her run on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs the World season 2.

Mayhem Miller is setting the records straight when it comes to RuPaul’s Drag Race fans who are acting a fool on social media.

Despite her short stint on the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs the World, Mayhem had nothing but a great sense of humor and positive attitude after her Variety Show number landed her in the bottom two and subsequently led to her elimination. Unfortunately, the Riverside, California queen is still getting a flood of negative messages from fans — and this time, she chose to respond.

“Well… I guess being the nice guy isn’t working,” Mayhem wrote in an Instagram post. “Apparently, I need to go back to my old ways to get the point across cuz too many motherf*ckas think my kindness is a sign for weakness. I'm no punk ass bitch. So don’t be confused. I fight.”

She continued, “I choose violence for now on. I’ve had it! The problem is some of you ain’t never had your ass kicked or been dragged down the street before. And I wanna fix that so there’s no more confusion. LEAVE ME THE F*CK ALONE!!!”

A few Drag Race alumni left comments under Mayhem’s Instagram post to show their support and also denounce the hateful messages that fans are sending.

Tia Kofi, the newly-crowned UK vs the World season 2 winner, commented, “Truly feels like nobody’s listening and I am so disappointed at how we haven’t been supported by some of our sisters.”

Drag Race season 5 and All Stars 2 star Coco Montrese wrote:

“Girl don’t let them get you out of character. We’ve been dealing with the toxic racist fandom for over a decade now, just know it’s a very very small %. Most of the fanbase loves what POC do. What needs to happen is that the true fanbase needs to make the toxic fans feel uncomfortable when they show their racist side. Let them know it won’t be tolerated or accepted. Because, without them speaking up, many of your performers / artists will start to disengage and cut ties or delete access to them, and that will not just affect the [bad] ones, but the good fans who love what you do will also end up losing out and losing access. Do what I do so I don’t internalize negative remarks or people calling me the N-word, I immediately cut off their access [so] they don’t get a response, because that’s what they want. They immediately lose seeing or making contact with me and my day goes unaffected in a very positive place. No negative vibes.”

Mayhem’s other UK vs the World costars also chimed in. Hannah Conda wrote, “I bloody love you and I’m so sorry this is all happening. I’m so done with it!! You are too magical to have anyone try and dim your light. I love you so much! We don’t stand for this nastiness and hate. Get it out of the fandom.” Choriza May commented, “Always here for you sister! Who we fighting?”

La Grande Dame left a comment with a face-vomiting emoji. Jobers Blonde wrote, “It’s so uncalled for, [you’re] include babe. Love you [heart emoji.]”

Reality TV viewers are entitled to have opinions and preferences, but it’s always disappointing when those perspectives are informed by prejudice and/or spill into sending hateful messages to contestants who filmed a TV show. Oftentimes, this flood of hatred leads queens to quit social media for their mental health, when the whole ordeal could’ve easily been avoided in the first place.

We’re sending Mayhem Miller all the love and support right now.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs the World season 2 is now streaming on WOW Presents Plus.
