A reporter questioned black drag queen RuPaul over the lack of diversity in the star’s team after RuPaul received an Emmy award Sunday.
“I have a question for you about the hot-button term diversity, because that always gets thrown around. We’re looking at your team — I don’t see a lot of diversity,” Young asked RuPaul. (RELATED: Drag Queen Challenges Rep. Adam Schiff For His Seat In Congress)
“I’m curious about how you feel, especially as someone who represents so strongly for the LGBT+ community … ” the reporter continued. “Do you feel like it’s important for that to be represented behind the scenes as well for a show like yours?”

“First of all, the host of our show is black, gay and a drag queen, so check, check and check,” RuPaul responded. “But we’re pretty diverse, there are lots of different types of people here. Is it important? Absolutely.”
Young later complained in a tweet that RuPaul thinks because he is “black, gay, & a drag queen, that somehow is diversity is met.”
