Video footage has emerged of RuPaul Drag Race season 9 alumni Shea Coulee and Farrah Moan receiving homophobic abuse in a kebab shop after a show in Newcastle, UK (4 April).
In the video which was filmed by the abusers themselves, the queens are repeatedly called "slut", "faggot" and "walking STD's" by a group the unidentified females. Farrah Moan doesn't take it lying down, however, who claps back by saying, "We're touring the world being gay while you're living in Newcastle with your crusty ass eyelashes".

Tell 'em, Farrah!
Not long after the incident, Farrah tweeted about what happened and reassured Drag Race fans that there's "no need to apologise on behalf of the city- our show was amazing and theres homophobic twats all over the world. Love you guys!” She also trying to track down photos of the abusers.

No need to apologize on behalf of the city- our show was amazing and theres homophobic twats all over the world. Love you guys!— 👑 Farrah Moan (@farrahrized) April 3, 2018
Hahaha I didn't maintain my classiness to well in the video... I was drunk as hell and some lil girl came up to Shea and I with her phone calling us faggots, walking stds cuz my hair was pink and I guess she was white girl wasted 😬— 👑 Farrah Moan (@farrahrized) April 4, 2018
It was complete madness I've never used the word "greasy" so many times in my entire life— 👑 Farrah Moan (@farrahrized) April 4, 2018
It's a sad reality that homophobic and transphobic abuse is still a daily reality for so many in the LGBTQ community but it's heartening to see Farrah Moan fight back like that and watch all the love the pair are receiving on social media. Keep on slaying, queens!
