RuPaul claps back at ‘Twitter trolls’ and DENIES ‘rivalry’ with Brazilian drag queen Pabllo Vittar

RuPaul claps back at 'Twitter trolls' and DENIES 'rivalry' with Brazilian drag queen Pabllo Vittar 2

11-time Emmy winner RuPaul Charles has denied having any rivalry with Pabllo Vittar after blocking Twitter user @vittarwest over a request to acknowledge the Brazilian drag trailblazer’s success.

The 61-year-old drag icon tweeted a picture of the 28-year-old singer on Wednesday captioned: ‘I love and support @PablloVittar and shame on you catty Twitter trolls trying to create a rivalry.’

Pabllo (born Phabullo Rodrigues da Silva) then retweeted Mama Ru’s post and replied with a teary-eye emoji and a heart emoji: ‘I love you mother!’

On Saturday, Vittar made history as the first drag queen to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA; and she’ll return next Saturday for weekend two.

The Follow Me songstress – who came out as gay at age 15 – has released four albums and collaborated with two-time Grammy nominee Charli XCX and Grammy nominee Major Lazer.

And in 2018, Pabllo made history as the first drag queen to be nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for best urban fusion/performance for her track Sua Cara.

Vittar was first inspired to start dressing in drag, at age 18, after watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, which is executive produced and hosted by Charles.

On Wednesday, Newsweek asked the LGBTQIA activist how it felt to have three times the social media followers as her San Diego-born, Atlanta-raised idol.

‘RuPaul is an icon,’ Pabllo stressed to the mag.

‘[I’m in drag because] RuPaul opened so many doors. I love my fans and love all the support. But you know, girls, don’t forget who open[ed] the doors for you.’

Back in 2020, Vittar scolded her fans for pitting her against RuPaul over his silence about her career achievements.

‘This is ugly as hell. The fact of following [someone] or not doesn’t take away the respect I have for mother Ru!’ Pabllo tweeted in Portuguese.

‘If I am a drag queen today, it was because her show showed me that it was possible. I love and respect and hope to meet her one day.’
