In the latest installment of Billboard Pride’s “Spillin’ the Tea” video series, Jasmine Masters, Tammie Brown, Shea Couleé, Ginger Minj, Eureka O'Hara and Miz Cracker discuss the growing prevalence of racism within the RuPaul’s Drag Race fandom, which was brought to light by The Vixen during the current season of the reality show.
Shea Couleé asks her fellow queens what their thoughts are on the subject, with Jasmine Masters revealing that she does not read what people post about her on social media. Therefore, if people write anything critical of her, it does nothing to her. “It's not bringing me down, 'cause I'm a strong person,” she adds. “I already know who I am.”
Couleé shares that she considers herself to be fortunate that she received a lot of support from the show’s fandom, but that at the same time, she was also the target of race-based hate. The most difficult aspect of that, she says, it that in the outside world, it’s already “so nasty” for them because they are marginalized people, “especially in the LGBT community.”
