After controversy surrounding a recent mini challenge, Logo has announced its decision to remove the terms “she-male” and "she-mail" from future episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and pull the controversial "Female or She-male" segment.
Here is what the show's executive producers had to say:
“We wanted to thank the community for sharing their concerns around a recent segment and the use of the term ‘she-male’ on Drag Race,” said a network spokesperson. “Logo has pulled the episode from all of our platforms and that challenge will not appear again.”Furthermore, we are removing the ‘you’ve got she-mail’ intro from new episodes. We did not intend to cause any offense, but in retrospect we realize that it was insensitive. We sincerely apologize.”
