It was an accident, but still… šŸ¤®

Drag Race superstar Vinegar Strokes is freaking out after an ultra gross encounter with a super fan.

According to the Drag Race UK Queen, a fan described herself as a “huge fan” before spitting in her face, apparently by accident.

Eugh. Just gross. Particularly as we’re living through an outbreak of Covid-19.

The DQ said that she was “freaking out” and had to “sanitise [her] lips”.

She also uploaded a clip of her smearing disinfectant on her lips!

Response from her fans on Twitter ranged from a strong “no” to one commentator who urged the queen not to publicly shame the fan.

We reached out to Ms Strokes to find out whether it was an accident or done on purpose, who told us, “It was an accident, she was just excited, which I don’t blame her for hahaha!”

Guys be careful when talking to people, remember – “say it don’t spray it”.

A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated Ā£2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating Ā£2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
