Drag Race star Phi Phi O’Hara has branded YouTuber James Charles ‘pathetic’ over a joke he made about the possibility of World War III.
The phrase ‘World War 3’ started trending on Twitter after Iranian general Qasem Soleimani was killed in a bombing ordered by Donald Trump overnight at Baghdad Airport. Naturally, the internet [including Charles] dealt with the news in the best way they knew how – by making jokes.
However, James, 20, faced backlash when he posted snaps of himself in drag, with the caption: ‘Me when the government comes knocking on my door for the draft.’
Phi Phi – real name Jaremi Lee Carey – argued that the joke is harmful to the transgender community after the controversial ban on trans people joining the military.
‘Not cute James,’ she wrote. ‘Some trans men and women would love to be able to serve their country……and this just a pathetic joke for clout with some brushed out photos at the expense of our trans community. ‘I’d say do better……but time and time again you NEVER listen.’
