“I have been unhappy with myself since that night but I’m going to do my best to make it right.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race star Asia O’Hara has apologised for her final, controversial lip-sync from the season 10 finale.

The revered performer planned to reveal a number of hidden butterflies from her wrists and chest, but unfortunately, the insects never got to – let’s just say – fulfil their potential.

“I just want to let everyone know how sad and heartbroken I am by the way my lip sync performance during the finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race turned out,” Asia told fans in a heartfelt statement on Twitter.

“Despite months of research and rehearsing with a professional company, what I hoped would be an amazing and safe display of optimism, and a surprise for everyone including production and the network, it did not go as planned.

“I would like to publicly offer the entire world my deepest apology. It’s important that everyone knows that I would never purposely hurt any living being and have the utmost respect for all animals.

Asia explained that she’s been unhappy with herself since, and has chosen to donate over 100 volunteer hours to ASPCA, “an organisation dedicated to the fair treatment of animals since 1866”.

“I can’t apologise enough for what happened. I want my fans and the world to know that I’ll continue to be humble, own my mistakes, and lead with love and light.”
