Here's The "Period Gown" Rupaul Wouldn't Let A "Drag Race" Contestant Wear Because It Was In "Bad Taste"

We love a little BTS drama.

In case you are one of the few sorry people who don't *get Drag Race* or one of those tragic gays that think *not watching Drag Race constitutes as a personality,* then you know that this season of All Stars 4 is pretty great so far (minus Ru basically ignoring Naomi.)

That being said, Manila Luzon is *truly* slaying the Drag Race game this season.

She's given us bondage bunny.

She's given us one of the few truly great lip syncs of the season*.

And honestly, we can all agree, this runway look was one of the greatest of all-time.

Anyway, this week the runway theme was "curves & swerves." The challenge required the queens to play with proportions, making them more exaggerated using padding.

Manila came out looking like this, which like, cute.

But this wasn't her first choice of outfit...

Manila explained that she wasn't allowed to wear her first choice because "Ru said my ORIGINAL Curves & Swerves Runway look was in 'bad taste' and production told me to wear my back up."

So, she posted it to Instagram.

This was the look that Ru said was in "bad taste." Introducing Manila's banned "Period Gown":

The full caption explains her intentions:

In the words of legend Tammie Brown:

Needless to say, the reaction on Manila's post has been overwheeeelmingly positive.

The main takeaway being that periods are normal, so like, who cares?


And right?

I also just want to say, Manila posting this wasn't exactly a dig at Ru. This was merely Manila using her platform that Ru gave her to express herself.
