RuPaul’s Drag Race legend Shea Coulee revealed some devastating news on Tuesday, March 17, related to the Coronavirus pandemic that has completely shaken our world over the past couple of months.
The season 9 finalist said that one of her cousins has died from it in a now-deleted tweet. “I just learned that a cousin of mine died today from Coronavirus,” she wrote. “No one knew she had it, and I’m growing concerned for my other family members in her household.”
She, like many other celebrities, also urged her followers to look out for one another as the death toll continues to rise over this disease. “This is serious. Please stay safe everyone.”
