RuPaul’s Fans Are Upset After He Deletes All Of His Social Media Content
RuPaul’s fans aren’t happy with him. Page Six reported on Thursday that the 59-year-old wiped clean all of his Instagram accounts as well as his Twitter page without any explanation. Not long before he eliminated all of the content from his pages, fans began noticing that he slowly started deleting them one by one.
Fans initially thought that his account was merely hacked. Earlier this week, a Twitter user wrote that someone had hacked into his social media and started eliminating all of his old content.
Interestingly, other fans started noticing that the Drag Race alum, Kameron Michaels also eliminated much of the content from his IG account. This all comes at the same time as Thursday’s debut of Canada’s Drag Race, which marks the fourth rendition of the reality series.

RuPaul’s show was in the headlines this year for other reasons. Jeff Goldblum, who appeared in Jurassic Park as well as the sci-fi movie, Independence Day, made his way into the headlines as a contestant on RuPaul’s show, Drag Race.
During his appearence, Jeff asked a question about the tenets of the Islamic religion, and whether or not it fostered a culture of intolerance to gay people and the general LGBTQ community.
Goldblum’s questions were asked during a runway walk in which Dauris Rose wore a blue hijab with silver stars on it as well as a red and white caftan. The Iranian-Canadian, Cox, stated that a person could be an American citizen even if they were a Muslim or from the middle east.
Cox alleged that it was crucial for her to represent the minorities in the United States. At this point in the conversation, Goldblum questioned whether Islamic societies were tolerable to LGBTQ communities after saying he was just “thinking out loud.”
Social media users weren’t happy with the actor’s comments. They pointed out that anti-LGBTQ rhetoric persisted in many societies throughout the world, even predominantly Christian nations.
It’s not clear if Goldblum’s comments contributed to RuPaul’s social media cleansing, but sources say it likely played no role.
