Phi Phi O’Hara On Almost Quitting Drag: “I Didn’t Feel Safe Going Anywhere”

Check out a clip from tonight's all-new episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars."

Phi Phi O’Hara explains why she almost quit doing drag in an exclusive clip from tonight’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.

Kiking with the ladies in the workroom, Phi Phi reveals that someone in Los Angeles actually threatened to “throw acid in her face” after watching her throughout season 4.

Phi Phi also revealed that Detox, who hadn’t yet appeared on Drag Race at the time, was one of her worst critics online.

“I literally had one breakdown moment, and I remember crying in the car,” said Phi Phi.

“After season 4 there was a slight period of time I almost quit drag. It was just too much to handle, I didn’t feel safe going anywhere. People really take it seriously and they wanted to hurt me, so they were like, ’maybe it’s best you just show up.'”

Alaska added: “I just hope there’s a movement toward people being a little less awful and hateful oin social media. Treating that way is so unacceptable.”
