Trump-loving, drag queen–hating Republican Kari Lake has now lost the Arizona governor’s race to Democrat Katie Hobbs, and drag performer Barbra Seville is happily trolling Lake.Richard Stevens, who does drag under the Seville name, called out Lake for hypocrisy during the campaign, noting that he had frequently performed for her, at a party in her home and elsewhere, and considered her a friend — but she had tweeted, “They kicked God out of schools and welcomed the Drag Queens.
They took down our Flag and replaced it with a rainbow.” Lake also used the “groomer” slur against LGBTQ+ people.Lake, a former Phoenix TV anchor, responded by claiming at least one performance by Stevens was not a drag show and by sending a cease-and-desist letter.
Stevens continued criticizing Lake, however.The governor’s race was called Monday for Hobbs, currently the Arizona secretary of state.
The official Barbra Seville Facebook page was filled Tuesday with slams against Lake. Posting as Seville, Stevens put up a picture of a Chinese food carton labeled “Kari Out” and a photo of him as Seville saying, “Tell Kari, I want her to know it was me,” a Game of Thrones reference.Lake has not conceded the election.
