RuPaul's Drag Race star Gia Gunn is back with another controversial opinion and her fellow queens are all weighing in on it.
Over the weekend, RuPaul’s DragCon LA 2022 took place in Downtown Los Angeles' Convention Centre and it's safe to say that it was one of the largest Drag Race events in RuPaul herstory. Not only did almost all of the drag queens from seasons 12, 13 and 14 attend, but all eight winners who will compete in All Stars 7 also appeared at the three-day extravaganza.
DragCon is a chance for queens to show off their best looks but it turns out that Gia Gunn wasn't a fan of what she saw.
Yesterday (May 16), Gia logged on to Twitter and chose chaos. She tweeted: "Say what you want but I saw 0 beauty at this year’s dragcon…what happened to the glamour?".
She then added, "On the other hand…I think I was giving? Rate my look 1-10 if you have the nerve!" with several shots of her all-black ensemble.

Naturally, the tweet immediately set the internet on fire. Some queens found Gia's tweet hilarious, others found it hurtful and it immediately inspired thousands of memes and reactions. With that in mind, here are just a few of the responses so far.
1) Trixie Matell stans Gia the troll!
2) Shea Coulée also found it hilarious.
Drag Con 2022 will one day be remembered as the year where no measurable or quantifiable beauty was seen.— Shea Couleé (@SheaCoulee) May 16, 2022
3) Heidi originally called Gia out but then joined in with the memes.
Now I usually don’t say anything especially when it comes to messy, foolish, and clearly incorrect social media post, but this time Ms @GiaGunn I feel like this is a step too far. As sisters we should build each other up not tear each other down. Until you learn that take a seat https://t.co/IADOPuqzCN— Heidi N Closet (@HeidiNCloset) May 16, 2022
