Drag queen Trixie Mittel accused of racism


The backlash comes from some fans after discovering comments made by Trixie Mattel at the Haters Roast, a tour featuring Drag Race contestants throwing shade at each other. Fans understood Trixie’s humor, but still believed she had gone too far with her joke about Latrice Royal. “I couldn’t decide what to wear so I wore this. It’s just like a cotton. Latrice picked it,” the performer said. In response, the star said: “Oh, is that too far, Denver? What, did you forget to invite your black friends tonight?” Munroe Bergdorf, the trans rights activist and model, slammed the joke, saying that the problem of slavery is not something to make fun of. The model added that RuPaul’s Drag race is already a racist show because black contestants are treated differently than white ones. But instead of solving this problem they only make it bigger. Yet despite the social media backlash, Mattel stood by her joke, tweeting: “If you think drag queens apologize for jokes at a roast, you watch too much TV.”
