RuPaul Got Called Out For Fracking On His Wyoming Ranch

March 16, 2020 / Posted by:

Yes, that’s “fracking” and not “FUCKING.” 2020 is now at “RuPaul involved in a fracking scandal” levels of bizarre.

Drag Queen Extraordinaire, RuPaul, is somehow an alleged enemy to the environment. RuPaul admitted in a recent interview that he actually owns a shit ton of land in Wyoming and that he and his partner, Georges LeBar, make money from leasing “mineral rights” and selling water to oil companies. Well, people figured out what that means and called Ru out for being a motherfruckin’ fracker.

So you’ve probably heard about fracking, but in case you haven’t, here’s a definition from BBC News:

Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside. Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well.

Why is it bad? Also from BBC News:

“Fracking uses huge amounts of water, which must be transported to the site at significant environmental cost. As well as earth tremor concerns, environmentalists say potentially carcinogenic chemicals may escape during drilling and contaminate groundwater around the fracking site.”

While speaking with Terry Gross on NPR’s Fresh Air, Ru admitted that he and Georges lease mineral rights and sell water from their land.

“Well, a modern ranch, 21st century ranch, is really land management. It is – you lease the mineral rights to oil companies. And you sell water to oil companies. And then you lease the grazing rights to different ranchers. So it’s land management. Yeah.”

So while Ru has brought in Green New Deal pusher Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to be a guest judge on the current season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, he is also making a fortune off of killing the planet. In the words of Alyssa Edwards: “You’re that girl–I knew you were.”

Twitter came for RuPaul, who’s previously gotten in trouble for not being inclusive of trans people and a lack of racial diversity in his casting choices.

Can’t wait for more insane news like this to come out, like Dwayne Johnson is actually involved with pharmaceutical companies who overcharge insulin, or how Taylor Swift has deeply-rooted financial connections to the prison industrial complex. I would have preferred if “fracking” were actually some weird gay sex thing (involving felching and fucking), but nope. It’s just regular old environmental destruction. Ru might be telling the polar bears to “sashay away, hunties!”
