How Ru-de! Drag star in a Twitter boo-boo
CONGRATULATIONS were not in order when a Twitter account mistook the identity of Emmy winner RuPaul.
Palms collided with faces as the Television Academy’s social media site tweeted a picture of music director Rickey Minor, referring to him as the world’s most famous drag queen.
The post was promptly deleted but not before an eagled-eyed fan tweeted: ‘That is Rickey Minor who looks NOTHING like RuPaul!’
Seeing the funny side, Minor said: ‘I don’t look that good in a dress!’
RuPaul 56, won his second best host Emmy for cult show RuPaul’s Drag Race.
