Bianca Del Rio slams ‘blonde b*tch’ who filmed her West End performance

Hurricane Bianca warning! Bianca Del Rio was “thrilled and excited” to return to the cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie earlier this month… but less thrilled and excited to see one theatergoer videotaping one of her recent performances in the West End musical.

“Dear blonde bitch with glasses, Thanks for distracting the ENTIRE CAST and SEVERAL PEOPLE AROUND YOU as you filmed during all of ACT ONE with your phone in your hand,” the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 winner tweeted on December 28. “This is not a concert, theme park or even a cruise ship…… it’s THE THEATRE! RESPECT IT !”

Then, after one Twitter user deemed it “acceptable” to film a “comedy” show, Bianca set the misguided fellow straight, writing, “It’s a musical in the WEST END. The equivalent to BROADAWAY…….you F*CKTART.”

In the musical — based on the 2011 BBC documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16 — Bianca plays Hugo a.k.a. Loco Chanelle, a retired drag queen who mentors a teen from a small English town who wants to attend his school prom in drag. (Drag Race judge Michelle Visage recently played Jamie’s teacher in the show.)

Bianca, a.k.a. Roy Haylock, returned to London’s Apollo Theatre on December 9 to start a 12-week reprise. “I had such a blast playing Hugo/Loco Chanelle earlier this year,” she said in a statement, per NewNowNext. “I’m honored and beyond grateful to have the opportunity to work with such an incredibly talented cast and crew once again.”
