Ariel Versace Might Be the Most Controversial Queen in 'Drag Race' Herstory

By Anna Quintana

The queens on RuPaul's Drag Race are known for their over-the-top personalities and even bigger performances, but Season 11 might just have the fearless queen of all time: Ariel Versace

The self-proclaimed life-sized Bratz Doll and Lisa Frank princess is known for her love of bright colors and wigs, and she's already one of the favorites to win RPDR (or at least our pick). 

However, that doesn't mean the 26-year-old from Jersey hasn't hit a few bumps in the road to drag-race greatness. There was that one time Ariel performed dressed as what appeared to be a Muslim woman wearing makeshift bombs set to R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly." Oh, and did we mention it was on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks?

Now, Ariel wants everyone to know she's done talking about her 9/11 controversy... 

"Okay so before my eyes burn out of my head and my fingers bleed, let’s address this ‘9/11 Number’ nonsense," she wrote on social media. "I knew this was going to arise with me now being in the public eye and it being one of the first things that pops up when you Google me. Gotta love the internet!" While she defended her routine since the theme of the night was "Offensive Comedy," she does admit she went too far.
