"Drag Race" alum Manila attempted to top Naomi's views with her “Go Fish” music video, but she sadly lost this race as well.

Despite some intense backlash from the Drag Race community for her decision to send home All Stars 4 front-runner Manila Luzon, Naomi Smalls is resting pretty with 1 million views for the "Pose" music video. Manila attempted to top Naomi's views with her “Go Fish” music video, but she sadly lost this race as well.

Earlier this week, Manila took to Twitter to challenge Naomi to see who could reach 1 million views first. She reached out to fans on social media to help her hit the goal before Naomi. “Naomi’s music video has been out for a month & is at 970K views,” Manila tweeted. “My music video ‘Go Fish’ has been out for 3 days & is at 550K views! I bet I can reach a million views before her! But I need the help of my fans! Don’t be bitter, just share.”

Smalls retweeted Manila’s post and jokingly commented, “Act a fool.” In the end, Naomi got the last laugh when her video hit 1 million views on Wednesday morning (Feb 6).

“Go Fish,” Naomi tweeted, with screenshots of Manila’s original tweet and her video with the “1M” counter circled.

It’s safe to say that despite the unexpected elimination and the shade throwing, the two queens share no bad blood -- especially considering Naomi made an appearance in Manila’s video.
