Previous racist tweets from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK third season contestant, Charity Kase, have surfaced again, forcing the drag queen to apologize.

Tweets by the London-based queen are circulating on the internet, who use the N word and joke about the slave trade. There are also images of Charity Kase wearing outfits in drag that are culturally appropriate. The tweets are from 2013 and 2014.

Charity Kase apologized on Twitter and Instagram earlier this week and took full responsibility for their actions.

“I was 16 years old and uneducated at the time, without being aware of the cultural misappropriation and the effects of my language use. I absolutely accept that this does not excuse my behavior, “said Charity Kase.

” I want you to know how sorry I am. I’m not the same boy today. I take full responsibility for these unacceptable tweets and I hope you can understand that they don’t represent me now or what I stand for today. When I saw her again, I was ashamed. I would like to apologize to all of my fans who are disappointed or insulted by me, especially to those who have suffered any trauma. “

” Please forgive me. I have changed and grown and I am determined to move on to grow by using the platform and privilege I have to amplify the voices of colored people, “added Kase.

There were mixed responses to the apology from Charity, with social media users said her actions were inexcusable no matter how old she was when she did them.

Meanwhile, other people, including Drag Race Season 1 contestant Crystal, have been defending charity, saying, “People shouldn’t be judged for things they said on the internet as a child. “

It should go without saying if you followed me, but: 1) don’t use the N-word 2) obviously it’s okay, hurt to become when people do – I’m not trying to d as.

“I think we live in an incredibly racist world and all whites are in the process of unlearning white supremacy to some extent. I think expecting all 16 year olds to be familiar with anti-racism diminishes the idea of ​​structural racism and its implications, “Crystal said on a Twitter thread.

” I understand this is not my excuse – but as someone who actually knows you, I think that there might be useful information for you on Twitter that you don’t know. “

However, Crystal later tweeted thinking that her Twitter thread in defense of the charity may have actually minimized the effects of racism.

I reflected. Yesterday when I vouched for a friend I minimized racism and its effects and I took up a lot of space in an arena where I have no right to take up space. I’m sorry, and I’m sorry it took me a minute to get here. I’ll do better next time.

“I’ve taken up a lot of space in an arena where I have no right to take up space. I’m sorry, and I’m sorry it took me a minute to get here. Next time I’ll do better. “

The third season of Drag Race UK was also called by Tayce, the participant of the second season, or there is a lack of variety.

The finalist of the second season wrote in the Social Media: “I’m so proud to see so many familiar faces and I’m happy to get to know the unknown. That being said, I’m a little surprised at the lack of diversity that was cast, especially as I personally have so many incredible Poc, Trans – and know fabulous actors. ”

Earlier this year, the finalists of the Drag Race Down Under, Scarlet Adams and Karen From Finance, were also embroiled in a racism controversy.

Scarlet Adams had to apologize after the photos the drag queen appeared in a variety of insensitive costumes, including a Native American headdress, a burqa disguising himself as a Bollywood star, and several cases of yellowface and blackface shocking photo showed Adams in a black face with two blackened teeth and a shirt with the Aboriginal flag on it.

Karen From Finance had to apologize after people noticed she had a Golliwog doll tattoo, a piece which she claimed she did because of her collection of toys. The Golliwog, depicted as a children’s cloth doll, is considered a racist caricature by black people. The meanwhile “covered” “Golliwog tattoo” and the offending collection ends up on “landfill”.

Such terrible memories … I had this tattoo covered up and deleted years ago. I was ashamed to finally realize how ignorant I had been in learning about its origins and consequences, and was devastated at the thought of any pain she could possibly have caused others

The controversy was brought up on the show when RuPaul asked Scarlett to raise the issue on the main stage of Drag Race Down Under.

The third season of Drag Race UK is expected to air this September. An official release date will be announced.
