Drag Drama: Tyra Sanchez (Falsely) Announces The Death Of Morgan McMichaels, But That's Not The Whole Story

Late last night, there was some piping hot RuPaul's Drag Race T brewing, and it involved season two queens Tyra Sanchez and Morgan McMichaels.

Morgan's fans and friends were shocked and alarmed to encounter a Facebook post that appeared to announce her untimely death.

However, it wasn't long after the post, shared by Drag Race season two winner Tyra Sanchez, went up, that it was deduced that the entire thing was a lie. 

Paulo Arabejo (aka Jiggly Caliente) was among the first Drag Race queens to condemn Tyra's post.

In fact, an hour after Tyra shared the above photo, Morgan, herself, gave fans some insight as to what was happening behind the scenes.

Shortly after performing in her birthday show at Toucans Tiki Lounge in Palm Springs, last night, Morgan went live on Facebook to explain that Tyra's offensive post was likely her way of lashing out over the loss of a booking at Micky's nightclub in West Hollywood.   

Evidently, Tyra had recently shared a (now edited) post in which she demeaned Morgan's good friend and fellow Drag Race season two queen, Raven.

"When you attack one of my family, and one of my friends, then I take issue."

In response to Tyra's offending post, Morgan contacted the management at Micky's to say that she'd like to withdraw from her forthcoming birthday show at the West Hollywood nightclub, in which she, Tyra, and Raven had all been booked. 

"After that post, I called the manager of Micky's this morning, and I told him, 'Look, I'm not happy with this situation. I'm going to take myself out.'"

However, according to Morgan, the management at Micky's decided that ultimately, they'd rather retain her booking.

"It was decided by the management that more people would come to see me at Micky's than they would Tyra. 

"It's my birthday....They are gonna come for my birthday, and I'm grateful for that."

Then this morning, Tyra went live to share her side of the story.

"I apologize for posting the picture that Morgan McMichaels passed away.

"I understand that was wrong, and I understand the magnitude of what I have caused to many of you, reading your comments." 

Tyra then proceeds to explains why she's not taking the post down.

After that crazy ass, music producing douche Lucian Piane, Tyra remains RuPaul's biggest mistake. Raven, Jujube, and Morgan all have more of an internet presence, and do so much more to Make Drag Race a respectable and popular venue to forward Drag.

She doesn't look very sorry and what she did,  not good, it was wrong . Playing with human being life. You are the image of Rupaul Drag Race you become another stuck up person oh well you are coming from florida of course and then from a country didn't have anything to eat and now you think you are a celebrity uhmm not to me actually I didn't know you exist. Back to earth girl and you should use all your money and fix those Teeth of the lower jaw not cute and oh God those lips the person did it hates you . Anyway back to reality because at the end you will not have friends or fans , family in this case your sisters always are there to cover your back. You are a bad person, bad human being, bad gay and bad drag queen.

I agree with everything you said except that line about Florida.  Ginger Minj is from Florida and she is nothing like Tyra.  Roxie Andrews is from Florida and now Trinity Taylor is here in Florida.  Tyra had a bad attitude when she was in the show and continues, probably out of insecurity more than anything else.

I didn't like Tyra when she was a contestant on RDR and I still don't like her. She is a tasteless winner that did not deserve the crown with her horrible attitude! She made an appearance here in Dallas a few years ago at JR's and she was very ungrateful to the people tipping her, didn't even smile.....just took the money and walked off. She didn't even look good and I have seen her make appearances on RDR and looks awful.....when you're ugly on the inside, you're ugly on the outside!!

I found his wallet years ago in Orlando and returned it the moment I saw him. Not only was he rude af he threw in a comment "let me guess you took all my money" I was shocked as most people would be thankful. His personality sucks and never should have NEVER been given the opportunity to carry the legacy of a winner on RuPauls Dragrace.

Tyra is, and always has been, garbage. She provided yet another example of this by unnecessarily coming for raven, and again for coming after Morgan for defending her friend.

Tyra is lucky that she was even booked in the first place, because if she didn't win the title in season 2 (widely considered one of Ru's rare, and most glaring mistakes) no one would even remember her name. Girl needs to have several seats and count her blessings that she's getting gigs anywhere.

Yawn! Morgan butting in where she doesn't belong. She should've talked with Tyra privately about this matter. That's what professionals do to avoid drama when they want to avoid drama. Why get involved in Tyra and Raven's drama?

Morgan was wrong for sticking her nose in a situation that had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with her. Mama need ti understand when she made that call... for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. MORGAN... IT'S REAPPING SEASON LOVE. SIT IN IT! YOUR CHOICE...YOUR ACTIONS.

Purely immature and unprofessional. Unacceptable! You're not some local only queen. You're a RPDR queen so you longer have the privilege of lashing out in the manner that you do without consequence. You have an image and a title to uphold and smearing your drag family name in the process is simply not an option. If you can't love yourself enough to understand boundaries then you need not beat your mug ever again. Also consider that you have a child who may some day read this and pays attention to how you carry yourself as this is how children learn to build their own character - through their parents or parental figures.

I think that Tyra is very much in the wrong, no one should ever post anything of this nature about a fellow performer, much the less a sister, as a gay society we need to always lift each other up, not bring each other down, words hurt worse than any form of abuse, wounds can heal but healing the mind and soul is a very difficult thing, I hope that in the future we all remember to choose our words and actions carefully.
