Robbie Turner Has Broken Her Silence About That Car Crash, and Well, We Still Aren’t Buying It
It was Wednesday, April 18, that we reported on a fatal car crash involving Drag Race Season 8 alum Robbie Turner. The Seattle-based queen took to Twitter to say his Uber home from a gig had been hit by a drunk driver. He had made it out fairly unscathed, but his driver wasn’t so lucky.
Then the speculation about the Robbie Turner car crash began.
The very next day it turned out that authorities were unable to corroborate Turner’s story. Seattle Gay Scene sought a response from official sources and spoke with a Seattle Police Department spokesman who said, “I am not aware of anything like that occurring, nor are any of my colleagues aware of this accident.”
We at Hornet reached out to Turner’s publicist for comment on the incident, but the queen nor his people responded to any outlets’ request for comment. The days after were filled with speculation about what really happened, and many fellow Drag Race alums took to social media to criticize Turner himself.
People felt hoodwinked by the Robbie Turner car crash, a lie.
Well now Turner has broken his silence, granting Entertainment Weekly an exclusive interview in which he shares his side of the story more than a week on. After reading his new play-by-play, we have to say, something is still fishy.
