'RuPaul's Drag Race': Has Derrick Barry made the show unwatchable? Fans call him 'cancer among the ladies'
'Didn't like Derrick on S8 or All Stars and I'm still not feeling him,' a fan commented
Derrick Barry, Naomi Smalls, and Asia O'Hara have been part of a backstage drama that has begun to annoy the fans. If Derrick's partner Nebraska Thunderfuck could have avoided attending the queens' ladies night out party, then probably it wouldn't come to this.
Asia has now distanced herself from the queens. She has limited her interaction with them and even has a separate dressing room. The disconnect has started to show in their performance and it's only a matter of time before host-mentor RuPaul Charles gets wind of it.
The queens, especially Naomi, was visibly upset to see that the production unit provided Asia with a solo dressing room, which has an attached restroom and enough room for her to relax even. The crew did it keeping Asia's safety in mind because her make-shift dressing room was stationed in an unsafe area and therefore, needed to be moved.
In the preview, we see the queens continue with the Asia-Derrick-Naomi drama. And the fans are already over it.
"This is a boring show Its just six bitches keep talking shits on how they hate each other by taking turns. This is rupal drag fight not race at sll Just air me an new season of all stars n this sh*t off pls," a viewer commented on the show's official Facebook page, while another pointed out: "Drag Race has moved beyond the need for drama and silliness. This show is sadly a step back. Spin the bottle, really? Sorry, it's a pass."
"I love the Queens but Derrick and Nebraska make this unwatchable for me. Derrick is cancer among the ladies and needs to be removed. Sashay, if you will," a user commented. "Didn't like Derrick on S8 or All Stars and I'm still not feeling him. I feel like the sole reason he keeps getting cast is because he stirs the pot. If the producers want drama the least they could do is cast someone watchable who can start shit with a little more finesse and humor," another shared.
"I bought this on prime but wish I hadn’t. I love all these queens except Derrick and Kameron. Kameron is honestly fine if still a little beige, but Derrick makes this show a chore to watch. Idk if I’ll even watch the rest," a viewer pointed out.
