'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12: Crystal Methyd says her Mexican mom voted for Trump and fans are shocked
Crystal Methyd revealed her parents are supporters of Donald Trump, adding that they had voted for him in the previous election
Crystal Methyd opened up about her family being Trump supporters and fans are stunned.
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 returned on Friday night for an all-new episode, titled 'Choice 2020'. This week for their maxi challenge, the drag queens had to take part in a debate as to who will become America's next drag president. Last week we said goodbye to Jan Sport as she was eliminated after she lost the lip sync battle to Widow Von'Du. Fans were upset with her elimination, and are still not over it even a week later.
Back again for Episode 9, we were in for an intense episode as things got heated up way more than we can imagine. Tonight 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 elected its first American drag president with Jeff Goldblum and Rachel Bloom as the guest judges. It was an entertaining episode just as usual without a doubt, but along with that came some painful revelations from the drag queens.
Prior to their challenge, while they were getting ready, the drag queens opened up about their political beliefs, if they've registered to vote. That's when Crystal Methyd opened up and revealed her parents are supporters of Donald Trump. She also added that her parents had voted for him in the previous election and they still stand by their vote.
Crystal Methyd wasn't the only drag queen to open up. The other drag queens including Jackie Cox and Widow Von'Du also opened up. But watching Crystal's revelation has fans shocked, especially since she is half-Mexican from her mother's side.
Taking to Twitter, a fan wrote, "Crystal Methyd's mom is Mexican and is a trump supporter? #DragRace." Adding to that another fan said, "Not crystal is mexicain and his parents vote for trump wtf so mexicains like trumps now ??? #DragRace."
"Oof. Crystals parents supporting Trump did NOT age well. #DragRace," a fan shared. While another added, "Crystals parents voted for trump.... she’s Mexican like.....????? #DragRace."
"Ugh! It's so unfortunate to hear that Crystal's parents are both Trump supporters, especially after hearing him say such wonderful things about his father and how his parents are supportive of his Drag career. #DragRace," a fan shared. Another fan said, "Crystal’s parents are Trump supporters? Oh chile. #DragRace #RPDR #RPDR12."
