Patricia Quinn calls out drag queen Aiden Zhane for disrespectful portrayal on Rupaul's Drag Race


  • During RPDR's Snatch Game, a challenge where queens impersonate famous celebrities, Aiden Zhane decided to portray Patricia Quinn, famously known as Magenta on The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

  • On this episode, Aiden Zhane claimed to have had breakfast with Patricia Quinn, though miss Magenta said: "I do not know this utterly untalented person"

  • Aiden Zhane essentially depicted Patricia Quinn as a demented drug addict.

  • In a Facebook post, Patricia states she is "disgusted beyond belief" at the portrayal."I was flattered that a young person wanted to portray me on a popular TV show but unfortunately this is where the flattery ends. I did not respect being described as an "old cookie woman" or being depicted as a washed up actress who has taken too many drugs."

  • She also criticized Sh*rry Pie (who you may recognise as the queen that was eliminated for sexual misconduct) portrayal of Katherine Hepburn: "I hope I am not associated with this TV show again. From my portrayal to making fun of Katherine Hepburn's neurological disorder I found the show tasteless." Said predator queen was rated at the top for her "performance".
