Nearly A Month After Controversy, "RuPaul's Drag Race" Commits To Stop Using Transphobic Slur

“We did not intend to cause any offense, but in retrospect we realize that it was insensitive. We sincerely apologize.”


Following backlash from the trans community, RuPaul's Drag Race announced the term "she-male" will no longer appear in its programming.

We wanted to thank the community for sharing their concerns around a recent segment and the use of the term 'she-mail' on Drag Race.


Logo has pulled the episode from all of our platforms and that challenge will not appear again.


Furthermore, we are removing the 'You've got she-mail' intro from new episodes of the series.


We did not intend to cause any offense, but in retrospect we realize that it was insensitive. We sincerely apologize.
