Aquaria Calls Theresa May Tweeting About Drag Race a 'Mess'

Aquaria Calls Theresa May Tweeting About Drag Race a 'Mess'

Aquaria and Theresa May

The RuPaul's Drag Race winner slammed the British prime minister over Brexit and her conservative views.

The British prime minister has tweeted about RuPaul's Drag Race -- and not everyone is gagging.

Theresa May mentioned the VH1 reality competition in response to news that she had sent a letter with a signed photograph to Amber Dextris.

Dextris, whose real name is Ben Tye, was a participant in Miss Drag U.K., a charity drag pageant that supports the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society.

When asked by BBC reporter Chris Gibson on Twitter, who linked to this article, if she was also a fan of Drag Race, May responded, "Must admit I haven't had a chance to catch up on @RuPaulsDragRace, but wishing Ben all the best in raising money for a great cause @SandsUK."

May, currently embroiled over Brexit, surprised many with the reference and sparked jokes on social media about how the prime minister may be gunning for a possible guest appearance on the upcoming RuPaul's Drag Race U.K.

Aquaria, the winner of season 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race and reigning America's Next Drag Superstar, slammed the leader of the Conservative Party over the tweet. "Honestly thanks for the support but no thanks," Aquaria tweeted. "Get your policies together and then feel comfortable enjoying our art. Mess."

In follow-up tweets, Aquaria -- after some defended May for supporting a drag performer and charity -- doubled down on her criticism and said, "We don't need some conservative fool to pretend like an ally and then act opposite."

"Always soooo skeptical about 'adults' and leaders being down with the kids and knowing how my fans and personal beliefs disagree with a LOT of what this person stands for, it was such a cheap @ to include ru and the franchise into the mess," she added.

"I know that my fans and followers complain all the time about her and her conservative views so I thought it would be more than fair to respect that. But trash me if I'm wrong and I will totally try to understand where I'm out of line."
