RuPaul's Drag Race stars slam "transphobic" host Wendy Williams

RuPaul's Drag Race stars slam

Our video editor Lewis, who happens to be one of the biggest Lady Gaga fans, will be recording a reaction video for every episode of the season.

According to Stephanie, the TV host once had drag performer Erickatoure Aviance removed from the audience of her show for being attending in a black dress and wig.

Former "RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars " victor Alaska Thunderf--k wants Wendy Williams to "sashay away" from hosting a show about the drag queen competition. Speaking on RuPaul's Drag Race, the 30-year-old songstress, who is a vocal supporter of LGBTQ rights, praises the community for being a source of inspiration for her, reported FemaleFirst.

Most tellingly, a comment from RuPaul's best friend, Michelle Visage, underneath the post simply read: "Yep". "But instead Wendy repeatedly spouted ignorance and transphobic rhetoric to a daily audience of millions", Alaska said. At that time, much of the nation was learning to navigate trans visibility for the first time and needed guidance and clarity from the media.

After the first episode of season nine became the most watched in the show's long history, the competition's new broadcaster picked Wendy to front their new show, which airs before new episodes of Drag Race and during the ad breaks.

Wendy Williams has been appointed the host of VH1's Drag Race viewing party - and people aren't happy.
