What did Patricia Quinn say about Aiden's impersonation of her?

In her official Facebook statement, Patricia wrote, "I am disgusted beyond belief at how I was portrayed on RuPaul's Drag Race. I was flattered that a young person wanted to portray me on a popular TV show but unfortunately this is where the flattery ends." She added, "I did not respect being described as a 'old cookie woman' or being depicted as a washed-up actress who has taken too many drugs... I wish Aiden had given me the common courtesy of a 'heads up' and maybe I could have given him a few lines etc, to say on the show."

Patricia also posted a comment on Facebook from her own account (Patricia married the late Sir Robert Stephens and took his name), saying, "Disgusted beyond belief liar I do not know this utterly untalented person shite." Ooooof.

Patricia also added that aside from Aiden's distasteful impersonation, she also didn't appreciate contestant Sherry Pie for her portrayal of the late actress, Katherine Hepburn. Sherry Pie had used a tremor, which Patricia felt was "making fun of Katherine Hepburn's neurological disorder." FYI, Sherry Pie was disqualified from RuPaul's Drag Race after it was discovered that they catfished a bunch of guys and tricked them into submitting "disturbing" audition tapes. Double yikes. 

Fans agree with Patricia and are glad Aiden got called out for her behavior.

People on Twitter are definitely on Patricia's side.
