RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs The World Season 1 Episode 1 features a talent show. Canada’s Drag Race star Lemon performed an original music number with plenty of choreography. Meanwhile, Drag Race Thailand host Pangina also delivered a performance to a song. Unfortunately, Lemon ended up in the bottom alongside Janey Jacké. Pangina and Jimbo earned the top placements.

Pangina turned it out in a gag-worthy lip-sync and earned the power to send a bottom queen home. She ultimately chose to send home Lemon after developing a close friendship with Janey. However, Pangina explained that she sent Lemon home partly because that performance isn’t anything that she hasn’t seen before.

Lemon ‘fans’ are sending ‘racist remarks and death threats’ to Pangina Heals

Pangina took to Twitter to explain how the RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs The World fandom attacked her following Lemon’s elimination. “Okay now it’s racist remarks and death threats … ,” Pangina tweeted. “Please be kind to other humans. You may not agree with my decision and I can respect that BUT violence or threats are not okay.”

Lemon quickly jumped to Pangina’s defense in two tweets.

“It’s never deep enough to send hate to my friend yall!!,” Lemon tweeted. “I love Pan and she had to pick someone!! If you disagree just send me a dollar and stfu.”

Next, Lemon posted, “YOU’RE NOT MY FAN IF YOU’RE DOING THIS S***!!!!!!!!!!!”

Pangina responded thanking Lemon for her support. RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs The World isn’t the first season in the franchise to have fans take to social media to personally attack queens over reality television show placements and drama. However, it’s always great to see queens come to each other’s defense.

Lemon wasn’t the only RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs The World queen to come forward in support of Pangina. Baga Chipz and Janey Jacké both expressed their love for Pangina and disgust with the fandom’s hate over a reality television show competition.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK queens Divina de Campo and Choriza May also came to express their disapproval of the fandom’s behavior toward Pangina.

Unfortunately, this won’t be the last time that fans attack a queen based on All Stars rules. When a queen leaves the show, it’s important to show support instead of sending hate to the queens who stayed in the competition.
