“You all get so f***ing hyped up on this shit of a drag competition on TV!”
Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams has hit out at Drag Race fans following the season 10 premiere last Thursday.
The self-described “wicked stepsister” of the Kardashian family made a memorable impression in her debut for her twerk-tastic lip-sync to Christina Aguilera’s 2006 anthem, Ain’t No Other Man.
Her performance resulted in the elimination of breakout queen Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, which didn’t sit too well with Drag Race fans.
The uproar resulted in Kalorie making an official Facebook statement on the issue, and hennies, she isn’t happy…
“I’m officially done,” she vented. “You all get so fucking hyped on this shit of a drag competition on tv! GET HYPED ON SHIT THAT MATTERS! You don’t have this much passion for gun violence. Shit like that?!”
She then addressed the controversy surrounding Vanessa’s elimination: “I won the lip sync. The whole point of it, just like RUPAUL says. “This is your last chance, to impress me and to save yourself from elimination.” That’s exactly what I did! I’m sorry that I wasn’t the choice everyone wanted but I wasn’t there to impress you! I was there to impress Ru!
“You’re so mad Vanessa didn’t get to stay! Well god fucking dammit I was too! I was also mortified that Vangie had to leave. I wasn’t just crying because I was safe. I was crying because she was leaving. This hate, these hateful comments need to stop, negative opinion all need to disappear. You wonder why the world is, the way it is, look in the mirror.
“Be the change you want in the world. Online hate is going to get you nowhere. I may not have the best drag, it may not be as polished as some. But god dammit I made it to Drag Race. Did you? On your first try?? I think not. So stick that in your tea and drink it right up.”
Season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race airs Thursdays on VH1, and one day after on UK Netflix.
The season features 90 minute episodes and the return of Untucked on television, to celebrate ten years since Drag Race premiered.
In a statement, Mama Ru said: “To celebrate a decade of Drag Race we’ve pulled out all the stops. The queens, the challenges and the shenanigans are off the mother-tucking charts. And I’m thrilled that Untucked is back on VH1.
“‘Cause, henny, if you ain’t watching Untucked, you’re only getting half the story. Okurrr?” She added: “While preparing for season 10, I realized that one of our contestants was 11 years-old when we first launched Drag Race.
“The fact that we’re still here and still going strong is because of our talented queens. They are the heart and soul of the series. And as they continue to evolve and push the boundaries of drag, so does Drag Race.”
