Drag queen Tatianna was placed in ‘Twitter jail’ after she came for notoriously far-right commentator Tomi Lahren.
“Let’s be clear, I’m not with Taylor and I’m not with Kanye. I’m not for celebrities that pop off of sh*t they don’t understand.”
Let’s be clear, I’m not with Taylor and I’m not with Kanye. I’m not for celebrities that pop off of sh*t they don’t understand. Period.

Tati, however, was quick to point out that Tomi is a vocal supporter of Donald Trump, who would also fall under the category of “celebrities that pop off of sh*t they don’t understand”.
The drag queen tweeted:
“@TomiLahren But wait you dumb fucking bitch…wasn’t Donald a fucking reality star? Aren’t you out here to become a fucking celeb? Trash ass bitch.”
Tatianna soon found herself temporarily suspended from the social media platform. The Same Parts singer took to Instagram to share a screen grab from the site, informing her that she had violated Twitter rules against abusive behaviour.
Tatianna shared the screen grab and said:
“I didn’t threaten or harass…just responded to a dumb ass tweet from a trash ass bitch lol.”
When the 12-hour ban was lifted, Tati shared a gif echoing her joy:

Tomi Lahren has been called out in the past for her controversial far-right views. The Daily Beast has referred to the commentator as a “right-wing provocateur”. In July 2016, the climate-change denier compared Black Lives Matter to the Klu Klax Klan. Later that year she released a video of herself criticising Colin Kaepernick for taking the knee during the National Anthem. Tomi believes “left-wing feminists” are not “real women”, and when she accidentally revealed she was pro-choice, she was suspended with pay from her show TheBlaze. She refuses to identify as a feminist, but claims to support women’s empowerment.
