Chromatica, Paramore and Brexit buns: the funniest tweets and memes from this week’s Drag Race UK
Well, what a week it’s been.
Biden’s done more positive things for the LGBT+ community, Donald Trump got roasted on Twitter, a platform he’s not even allowed to use anymore, and, of course, Handforth Parish Council’s Jackie Weaver became the moment of light relief we all need in our lives.
However, all of these pale into insignificance compared to the absolute bombshell that dropped on last night’s Drag Race UK (and this time, we’re only slightly kidding).
If you’ve not watched this week’s Drag Race UK yet, the usual “go away/why did you click on this/what were you thinking?” comments apply. If you have watched it, you’ll know that Ginny Lemon made Drag Race herstory by refusing to lip sync, instead walking off into a neon yellow sunset with a cheeky wave. What. A. Legend.
Ginny Lemon and Jackie Weaver should definitely get their own Zoom chat show.
The reactions were absolutely hilarious, as usual, and almost as funny as Drag Race UK itself. Definitely funnier than Veronica Green and Sister Sister’s goth baking sketch, that’s for sure (sorry ladies, it was a shocker).
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite Drag Race UK funnies to brighten up your Friday below. Enjoy!
Someone did a Chromatica edit of Ginny walking away, but of course.

We also need to talk about how Tia Kofi went from basic to epic.

It wouldn’t be a Drag Race UK meme round up without the hilarious official Twitter account.

Someone noticed this striking similarity.

This was – well, will be – very relatable.

Back to Ginny’s shock exit, and this definitely sums up the judges’ reaction.

This was spot-on, as well (we assume).

However, Sister Sister really does deserve to have the last word on the topic.
It took me half the song to realise she’d swanned off.
I just thought she was doing the worm behind me. #DragRaceUK

See you all next week, when we’ll have not one, but two episodes to joyfully react to.
