Controversial Trump-supporting drag queen Elaine Lancaster, who we profiled earlier this year, won’t be performing at her weekly drag brunch gig in South Beach, Florida anymore.
“I quit Brandon yesterday, Sunday. I can come back anytime I want to come back. There’s a lot of hate that’s been generated for him and is making him uncomfortable,” Lancaster told the Miami Herald. “I just got my inheritance. My mother is still alive, but I got it anyway. So I don’t have to work another day if I don’t want to.”
“Brandon” refers to Brandon Voss, a party promoter who hosts popular drag brunches across the country in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Orlando, Fire Island and Miami. Tiffany Fantasia will be replacing Lancaster as the show’s host.
“I have nothing against Tiffany,” the drag diva said. “She’s not as articulate as I am. She’s not as intelligent as I am on the microphone. But she still has a little bit of charisma.”
Instead, Lancaster says she will be going on the road with newlywed Milo Yiannopolous to support the right-wing gadfly on his “free speech” tour.
“It’s a free-speech rally promoting Milo’s free-speech book. It’s going to be a love fest. I’m going to tell my story, how I came into doing drag,” said Lancaster, known off-stage as James Davis. “First we’re going to Orlando on Friday. The next one is in Australia. International destinations. The tour hasn’t been laid out yet.”
The Trump-supporting drag queen came under fire recently when she posted posted on social media that San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz would be “lucky to get a job at Amigos discount stores” and that Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg “colluded” with Clinton’s campaign. Lancaster published a tweet with the hashtags “JewishCollusion” and “FacebookFraudsters.”
Lancaster claims she is over the left.
“I would rather sit in a room with ten people than sit in a room with these people,” Lancaster said. “Everything the far left says they are has a string attached. If you don’t get in lock step, we’re going to destroy you. We’re going to get you fired from your job. We’re going to look up your friends on social media and destroy them.”
