SUCH A DRAG

RuPaul Fires Back With Love After Drag Race Queen Gets Racist Death Threats

Screen Shot 2015-03-19 at 9.33.46 AMIf you still don’t know who sashayed away this week on Drag Race, you either don’t care or have so much backed up in your DVR you can’t even face turning on the TV.

Either way, we don’t mind saying Jasmine Masters was sent packing with a very unsettling beard painted on her face.

But some fans (fans? do we call them fans? not sure what they are, really) had some truly vile things to say about Martell Robinson aka Jasmine Masters after her departure, and the language and vitriol are unsettling to say the least.

Here are screen shots of some of the nasty Tweets:

GayStarNews also reports another message said “I’m gonna hunt you down you ugly cunt.”

It’s amazing to us that anyone who has enough interest in Drag Race to begin with would fire off such horrific messages to one of the show’s queens. They’re a far cry from throwing shade, and some constitute illegal threats.

RuPaul fired back on the haters via Twitter. She posted:

And Jasmine posted her own response:

“I have many young nieces and nephews 2 cousins and I’m trying to make the world better as much as possible so the things I went through they wouldn’t. And now I feel like all my hard work was for nothing. And I’m just tired of it tired of it all.

I’ve been called all me life so that’s not my problem nor its hurting me. What hurts the most is all the racist comments. Which I am not. I have just about every race in my family. And to read what other people of another race say to me makes me wounder for the first time is this how others sees me.

And think I should kill myself or they want to kill me hang me or what ever else they have told me to do. NOT GOING TO DO.

I do thank you all for the luv and support and for standing up for me. Which I never get that from many people. So I wish you all the best in the world.”
