‘I know the pain and injury I inflicted on myself will never go away and I know that what I did was wrong and really cruel. Until I was on RuPau’s Drag Race, I never really realized how much my mental health and caring about things meant. In that show, I learned how important it is to “love myself” and I don’t think I’ve ever loved myself.

He continued: ‘I have been seeking help and treatment since returning to New York. I sincerely apologize to everyone I have hurt by my actions. I also want to say how sorry I am for my sisters from season 12 and honestly the whole network and production house. All I can do is change my behavior and it starts with me and doing that job. ‘

The original New Yorker was subsequently disqualified, after filming of the season had already been completed.

Many on Twitter targeted Hall because he gave Gugliemelli a platform to restore his image, after he had already admitted his guilt.

Jackie Cox (real name: Darius Rose), 35, who also competed in the 12th season of the hit competition series, issued a lengthy statement for Twitter.

In part, she wrote: “Being a performer and a public figure is not a right, it is a privilege. Sherry waived these privileges by her actions. Giving Sherry a spotlight without intending to reach out to the victims is irresponsible, immoral, and wrong. I stand by the victims of Sherry’s actions. ‘

David Mack, who published the story for Buzzfeed last year, wrote further Twitter: ‘I’m the journalist who first wrote about Sherry Pie. There are things here that point to a worrying lack of research (accusations? She admitted her behavior), but the biggest one is that one victim has already contacted me in trouble because there seems to have been no effort to hear them.
