Note to self: Never wear H&M around RuPaul.
RuPaul has officially had it and the straw that broke the camels back? H&M.
Thursday night's (Feb 11) RuPaul's Drag Race UK saw the queens return after a seven-month break because of coronavirus. Things had changed, though. Veronica Green wasn't able to continue in the competition (don't worry, she'll be back for Season 3!) after contracting coronavirus, Joe Black was back after being voted in by her fellow queens and Sister Sister got a new set of teeth.
The gals were thrown in the deep end straight away, splitting off into two groups for a Eurovision-themed challenge, which involved creating their own catchy pop anthem, UK Hun. After performing for the judges, the United Kingdolls (Bimini Bon Boulash, Lawrence Chaney, A'Whora and Tayce) won the competition, leaving Bananadrama (Joe Black, Tia Kofi, Sister Sister and Ellie Diamond) in the bottom.
RuPaul was particularly critical of their outfits during the performance, especially Joe's dress. Joe then bravely revealed that the pink turtleneck dress was from highstreet store H&M. Big mistake.
RuPaul went off on Joe for her fashion faux pas. She said: "That outfit, off the rack, was a huge disappointment to me. That's what everyday people do, and you should know that because you are a star. This goes to all of you up here. If it is from H&M you better glitter the fuck out of it and make it something special. We’re looking for Great Britain’s Next Superstar. Don’t waste my time. I don’t want to see any fucking H&M. What say you, Joe Black?"
Joe agreed with the critique, but Ru wasn't done: "I came all the way across the pond. I want more. I want more! Is that asking for too much? I don’t think so. I don’t think so. This is the biggest stage for drag in the world. This is the Eurovision of drag. So, I think we’ve heard enough." Yikes.
Ru's unexpected outburst left Drag Race fans shook and the H&M memes were honestly out of control.

Sadly, Joe's H&M mishap sent her packing in the end. Joe failed to beat Tia in a lip-sync battle to 'Don't Leave Me This Way' by The Communards and was sent home for the second time.
