Drag Race star Luxx Noir London has opened up about her haters in a new interview.
Early this year, the New Jersey-based queen earned worldwide recognition as a competitor on Drag Race‘s herstoric 15th season.
During her run on the series – which included a place in the top 4 – the beloved talent delivered an array of sickening looks, showstopping lip-sync performances and one of the franchise’s shadiest runway reads.
While Luxx has made an unforgettable impact on the Drag Race universe, she has also been subjected to unwarranted hate from “fans” on social media.
In a recent interview with Pride, the 23-year-old spoke about the number of trolls that target her and how she navigates their critiques.
“For me, I don’t really care if people drag me through the mud on social media. Their tweets don’t live on forever in my mind, but the impact that I had on Drag Race will live on forever,” she explained.
“Me on Drag Race has more reach than somebody else’s tweet. So if I could be a fixture in this iconography of television, why not.”

While Luxx has been able to ignore the hate on social media, she admitted that she’s not above clapping back.
“I’m not Beyoncé. I don’t take the high road. I get down and dirty like the rest of them. If I feel like I have to do that, I’m never doing it because I’m mad – I’m doing it because I know I can,” she explained to the news outlet.
“And it’s kind of just me taking back the autonomy that I feel a lot of the time is taken away from you when you become famous because everybody expects you to be perfect or not have an opinion.”
Luxx’s interview comes a couple of weeks after World of Wonder re-released season 15 in its intended 90-minute form on WOW Presents Plus.
“You asked for it, and you got it – and we’re thrilled to deliver 90-minute episodes for all of season 15, showcasing the joy and genius of this legendary cast,” Drag Race executive producers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato said in a statement.
