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.”
How do you feel about the decision?
