Meanwhile, Season 5 star (and All Stars
champ) Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 issued a statement echoing a similar take on the issue with Unicorn Booty
, a blog for LGBTQ news. "Frankly, I think the decision to make Wendy Williams one of the hosts of the weekly spots framing commercial breaks for RuPaul’s Drag Race’s
weekly broadcast is tone deaf, untimely and incorrect," Alaska writes. "I used to watch Wendy’s 'Hot Topics' daily, and some of the things she said during Caitlyn Jenner’s very public transition were beyond questionable...Wendy repeatedly spouted ignorance and transphobic rhetoric to a daily audience of millions." She continued, "I certainly don’t [Williams] is the right person to be hosting our community’s flagship television program."
