The thing about drag is that everyone has opinions about the queens — their performance, their makeup, their clothes, their personalities, their general existence — even if these people are incapable or unwilling to actually dress up and get on the stage themselves.
The contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race are especially aware of this fact, because the show allows even the laziest of couch monsters to simply sit there and watch an episode, tweeting every stray thought that comes to mind. In this video, Drag Race champs BeBe Zahara Benet, Jinkx Monsoon, Violet Chachki, Raja, Raven, Chad Michaels, Tyra Sanchez and Sharon Needles take the time to read and respond to some of the meaner comments they’ve received. It’s gold. Enjoy.
A highlight? Jinkx reading a comment by one hater who thinks she looks like the Chicken Lady from Kids in the Hall. Her response? After a moment of contemplation, a calm and reserved agreement: “I do.”
A comparison, in case you need it:
