'Drag Race' Alum Tempest DuJour Shades Trixie Mattel With Election Day Joke

November 6, 2018

RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Tempest DuJour shaded her season 7 sister Trixie Mattel in an Election Day tweet. The queen, who was the first eliminated queen of her season, tweeted, “Voting is important ⁦@trixiemattel⁩, even if the wrong people win,” accompanied by a photo of fellow Drag Race alum and A Star Is Born star Shangela.

Mattel won All Stars 3 earlier this year, but not without controversy. Several fans were outraged by a twist that allowed the season’s eliminated queens to whittle down the top four by voting for the final pair -- effectively eliminating Shangela, who was perceived as Mattel’s biggest competition for the crown.

Mattel took DuJour’s burn in stride, responding, “I will tear your other leg off you whore.” Her joke references a near-fatal car accident DuJour was involved in pre-Drag Race, which nearly severed her leg.

In related news, Mattel posted a video "outside a school" sharing that she had to vote in drag due to her busy schedule. "Wow that sucked but I couldn’t miss my opportunity to be that bitch," she tweeted with the video.
