On Monday, May 27, the 29-year-old reminisced about her time in Las Vegas with some famous drag queens. “I lived my dream this weekend at @rupaulsdragcon. Since 23, I have been a bystander to the queens who put their heart (and charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent) on stage and watched those who continue to bring so much joy, entertainment, design and art to the world even when the world doesn’t always understand,” she captioned several photos on social media. “To me, they are beautiful, they are strong, they are poised, courageous, genuine and witty as hell. They are an inspiration to me, and I’m so beyond grateful to have been asked to join a panel alongside so many stunning beauties.”
She added, “It literally left me speechless, and I can honestly say I’ve never fangirled so hard in my life. Thank you to all of the amazing queens, supporters, adults, kids, dogs and beautiful souls who made this event one of the most fun and positive experiences of my life. My heart is fat and happy.”
However, one fan couldn’t help but bring up her man’s past. “How does Garrett feel about that @bkoof? I know he has been fairly open about his bigoted leanings in the past,” they wrote. “@Rupaulsdragcon seems like something he would have been OK with making fun of.”
Naturally, the reality star stuck up for the 30-year-old. “Well, you can always ask him directly. But seeing as he asked if he could come and seemed to enjoy it, I’d say he feels pretty good about it,” she wrote. “He’s apologized for his offending’s in the past and is trying to move forward. This seems like a good step in the right direction, but I guess we’ll always have people like you focused on the negative.”
As fans recall, the California native “liked” some controversial Instagram posts in the past including images and memes that mocked trans people, Parkland high school students and undocumented immigrants.
After the news broke, Garrett apologized via Instagram in May 2018. “I am sorry to those who I offended, and I also take full responsibility for my ‘likes’ on Instagram that were hurtful and offensive,” he wrote at the time on his new account and explained he deleted the old one. “I decided to take it down and start fresh because I have learned an extremely valuable lesson and am taking steps to grow, become more educated and be a better version of myself. I am not perfect, and I will never be anywhere close, but now I will always be more informed and aware of what I am and supporting, not just on Instagram but in life.”
Well, it seems like nothing can come between these two. Nobody’s perfect, right?
