'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12: Rock M Sakura's elimination outrages fans, they say Aiden deserved to go home
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 was off to a great start when it premiered earlier this month. But now, with just three episodes down, fans and viewers are already outraged with how the season is turning out.
Rock M Sakura has been a fan favorite since day one when she opened up about her painful memories and why she had been shutting down in the competition. But now, fans are upset and outraged that RuPaul eliminated the contestant this week, affirming that she did not deserve the boot but it was Aiden who did.
Last week the queens said goodbye to Dhalia. Returning on Friday night for an all-new episode this week, former SNL star Leslie Jones took her seat as the guest judge. This week's maxi challenge was a sports-themed fashion ball.
Each contestant had to create three runway looks — a 'Lady Baller', 'Basketball Wife Realness' and a final look that screams balls with 'Balls-to-the-Walls Eleganza'. While there were a slew of queens who aced their runway looks, there were a few who didn't quite make the cut.
Now that’s what you call lip syncing for your LIFE! 🔥😱#DragRace pic.twitter.com/tNHvGvi74P— RuPaul's Drag Race (@RuPaulsDragRace) March 21, 2020
Britta looked clueless in the workroom as she just patched an outfit that vaguely resembled a pineapple. Aiden Zhane slapped together some white and black popcorn yarn balls on a corset and even managed to sneak in a nap. And for some reason, the judges weren't in favor of Sakura's look either because it had too much of everything.
While fans speculated that Sakura would sashay to safety, with Aiden and Britta heading to the lip-sync for life challenge, everyone was shocked to see that RuPaul sent Aiden to safety.
Sakura and Britta had to battle it out by lip-syncing to Rihanna's 'S&M'. From the second Sakura removed her puffy skirt, there was no stopping her and her splits. Britta, on the other hand, took a comedic spin to her performance, which seemed to have impressed RuPaul.
In the end, RuPaul made his decision and booted Sakura, sending Britta to safety. This decision left fans outraged, who affirmed that Sakura didn't deserve to be eliminated but Aiden did.
"How was Aiden safe and not Rock M?!?! and why do this season’s lip syncs SUCK?!? #DragRace," a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "Rock M Sakura leaving #DragRace while Aiden is still there is one of the greatest tragedies of this century."

"Bring Rock M Sakura back & take Aiden, NEOW. #DragRace," a fan said. While another shared, "why wasnt Aiden in the bottom, Rock M did not deserve to go home."
"Aiden Zhane is lazy, her drag is simple and weak. Rock M Sakura had that pinch of SPECIAL, she shouldn’t have gone home #DragRace," a fan shared. Another wrote, "aiden zhane confidently stood there in a corset and panty lookin like a foot locker employee headass while Rock M SWUNG HER HAIR TETHER BALL SHAPED HAIR AROUND AND YALL STILL MADE AIDEN SAFE AND SENT ROCK HOME?? SHOW ME THE DRUGS YALL ARE ON NOW! #DragRace. (sic)"
