RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Crystal is suing Laurence Fox for defamation after he called them a ‘paedophile’ on social media as he ranted at Sainsbury’s for supporting Black Lives Matter.
The actor and aspiring politician had initially hit out at the supermarket chain over the weekend for creating a safe space for its Black staff, and called upon his followers to boycott it.
‘I won’t be shopping in your supermarket ever again while you promote racial segregation and discrimination. I sincerely hope others join me,’ he wrote.
Mr Fox was immediately hit with backlash and among those calling him out was Crystal, who responded: ‘Imagine being this proud of being a racist! So cringe. Total snowflake behaviour.’
Things took a turn when Mr Fox began replying to those who slammed him over his boycott plans, and he wrote back to Crystal calling them a ‘paedophile’ in a tweet which has since been deleted.
The Drag Race star has now announced she is seeking legal action against Laurence.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Laurence Fox and Crystal’s reps for comment.
