Bebe Zahara Benet Receives Major Racist Attacks Post Drag Race Elimination
The racist trolls were apparently not happy with Bebe Zahara Benet sending home Aja on the most recent episode of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars and decided to voice their disgusting opinions about it on her social media.
Bebe, who is black, wound up in the top two for this week's episode and won the lip sync against fellow competitor Trixie Mattel. She had the option to send one of the bottom two home: Shangela or Aja. She opted for the latter.
This prompted some disgusting racists to leave hateful messages on her social media including “hope you die n***a ass bitch” and “Suck my vagina dirty n****r.” Other people left monkey emojis. These have been deleted.
Aja went in on these trolls emphatically on her Twitter the day after the elimination occurred.
Although Bebe hasn't spoken about it on her social media, this Andy Warhol tweet sort of references not paying any of those trolls no mind.
Bebe isn't the first RPDR queen to experience some sort of racism. Nina Bo'Nina Brown dealt with a ton of racist trolls after Valentina's shocking elimination, as well as Jasmine Masters, who got it so bad that RuPaul had to chime in and tell fans to knock it off.
Stay strong Bebe, we love you.
