RuPaul's Drag Race stars targeted with homophobic abuse in Newcastle

Farah Moan and Shea CouleƩ were confronted by two women after performing in the city on Tuesday.


Two former RuPaul's Drag Race stars have been targeted with homophobic abuse in Newcastle.

Season 9 contestants Farah Moan and Shea Couleé claim they were confronted in a kebab shop by two women who called them "faggots" following a performance in the city.

Footage of the incident posted by one of the women to Snapchat shows 24-year-old Farah, real name Cameron Clayton, appearing to defend the pair, who were out of drag at the time.

The US performer can be heard telling the women: "We’re touring the world being gay while you’re living in Newcastle with your crusty ass eyelashes".

One of the women then tells Farah she's a "walking STD", and asking: "Why are you so gay?"

Farah later took to Twitter to comment on the incident, writing: "I didn't maintain my classiness to well in the video..."

She continued: "I was drunk as hell and some lil girl came up to Shea and I with her phone calling us faggots, walking stds cuz my hair was pink and I guess she was white girl wasted."

Farah, who became the seventh queen to be eliminated from season 9 of Drag Race last year, added that she had nothing but love for Newcastle itself.

"so I didnt wanna bring attention to the negativity that happened to me and shea last night in Newcastle at a kebab shop but the vid is spreading," she wrote.

"No need to apologize on behalf of the city- our show was amazing and theres homophobic twats all over the world. Love you guys!"
