Of course, the internet is at war over the Drag Race UK winner
Drag Race UK found its first-ever winner, baby, and the internet naturally had feelings.
When historians try to pin point the exact moment that our nation changed irrevocably, they won’t look to Brexit or any general election, but to the night that RuPaul crowned The Vivienne the UK’s First Drag Race Superstar.
It was the shock result that divided a nation, with Divina De Campo fans lamenting that their queen had been the victim of a vicious robbery.

Meanwhile, team The Vivienne were elated that their queen had snatched the crown.
Shed a tear when The Vivienne won. I was rooting for her since the beginning, to see her ups and downs and learn about her journey, and to see all her hard work pay off, I just loved it. #DragRaceUK pic.twitter.com/RzcNixMO0I

It’s Alaska v Katya all over again. Divina & Katya are amazing, but Alaska and The Vivienne were better. Sorry bout it. They’re all going to have success, so wipe those bitter tears and let @THEVIVIENNEUK bask in her glory! It’s what she deserves. #DragRaceUK #teamthevivienne pic.twitter.com/9YEDiO5tyD

Ultimately the best take of the night was that both queens are deserved winners, who contributed to one of the best Drag Race seasons in memory.
In truth, we’ll probably never get a perfect season of Drag Race. There are just too many variables; even my beloved season 5 has weak points.
