Season five winner and All Stars 7 alum Jinkx Monsoon is no stranger to the spotlight. However, after a recent increase in body shaming comments, Monsoon opened up to PopBuzz to talk about her experience.

Monsoon stated that while the majority of comments have been filled with love from her fans, some have been less than complimentary.

The star commented that, “for a very sensitive, highly-anxious Virgo with OCD, I have been affected by things”.  “My weight has nothing to do with the things that I’m good at, I’m a singer, an actor and a comedian,” expressed Monsoon. “Nowhere in the job description of being a singer, an actor, and a comedian does it say you have to be thin.  “But for some reason, people really love commenting on the way my body has changed over the last decade and I don’t think that even needs to be part of the discussion.” The Drag Race star was then asked about being in the spotlight and how their fame doesn’t make the discourse any easier.
