The 'RuPaul's Drag Race' season 6 winner made jokes about the timing of Blair St. Clair's admission of rape during season 10 and received significant backlash from fans and St. Clair herself.
If there’s one thing RuPaul’s Drag Race season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio is known for, it’s her unfiltered comedy. The queen has famously been unafraid to tackle almost any subject when doing stand-up shows, ranging from politics to gender and even race. But now it seems that the drag star has crossed a line, even for some of her own fans.
During her set at Montréal Pride last week, Del Rio made fun of the queens of season 10, saying that they were "all crying" throughout the season. "You got the one going 'Ugh, I'm fat.' Then you got the other one going 'Ugh, I'm a black queen,'" she said, referencing season 10 contestants Eureka O'Hara and The Vixen. Del Rio then mentioned a standout moment when contestant Blair St. Clair opened up about being sexually assaulted. “Then you got that other bitch, 'I was raped!' No, fuck you,” the queen said. “You notice she wasn’t raped until she was in the bottom two? Think about that, bitch -- that’s fucking strategy … And if you weren’t raped, remember this -- you’re ugly.”
