RuPaul’s Drag Race star Tatianna turns mugshot after dramatic arrest into sickening new merch line
We’ve heard of turning lemons into lemonade, but RuPaul’s Drag Race star Tatianna is turning mugshots into actual mugs.
The drag star, who appeared on the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, was arrested for “disorderly conduct” after an altercation at a nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia, on Monday.
TMZ reported that Tatianna had followed a nightclub employee through an employees-only door at the club, and was escorted out of the club in handcuffs on a disorderly conduct charge after refusing to “leave peacefully”.

Tatianna, who appeared in the music video for Taylor Swift’s ‘You Need to Calm Down‘ earlier this year, has since sought to make the best of the situation – on Tuesday releasing a range of clothing and mugs featuring her real-life mugshot.
She said: “You asked so you shall receive! The Disorderly Conduct Collection! Buy yours TODAY!”
The drag star previously assured fans of the arrest on Twitter: “im fine! It was a dumb situation that I wish didn’t happen but s**t happens and people make mistakes. There was no violence or ridiculousness.
“I’m crying in the picture because I was scared and had never been in that position before. wish I would have just smiled.”
