​'RuPaul's Drag Race' Star Farrah Moan Target of Hate Crime in Newcastle
Farrah Moan, a popular queen from Season 9 of RuPaul's Drag Race, was attacked with homophobic language after a show in Newcastle, UK, on Monday night (April 2).
 
Video footage of the confrontation has now surfaced online, and it shows Farrah Moan (real name Cameron Clayton) and her fellow performer and Season 9 contestant Shea Coulée in a kebab shop post-show.
 
A woman can be heard taunting Clayton, asking "Why are you so gay?" He retorts with a few insults of his own, before the woman repeatedly shouts, "You're a walking STD."
 
As Shea Coulée noted on Twitter, a bystander named Steph stepped in and allegedly punched one of the people the harassing woman was with.
 
The BBC reports that Northumbria police have seen the video and said it "appears to show people being verbally abused" and that "we do not tolerate this type of behaviour in our city."
 
Despite saying that the video appeared to show a hate crime, the police also said that the verbal incident had not been officially reported. They are, however, investigating an assault in connection to the incident.
 
Clayton has since commented on the ordeal via Twitter (as Farrah Moan), telling fans that there is "no need to apologize on behalf of the city" — and adding that "our show was amazing and there's homophobic twats all over the world."
