Billy Porter Responds to Speculation That He Shaded RuPaul at Emmys 2019

Billy Porter is responding to speculation that he threw shade at RuPaul after RuPaul’s Drag Race won at the 2019 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 22) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

During RuPaul‘s win, the camera panned to Billy and showed what appeared to be some side-eye. You can watch a video of what viewers saw on Twitter.

Later, in the press room, Billy wanted to clarify that there was absolutely no shade.

“Let me make this clear right now in this room to everybody. Right now. There was never a side-eye coming from me. There’s never anything negative coming from me. You’re never going to get from it. Okay. It’s all love, all love, it’s all positivity. Don’t come to me with that,” Billy Porter said.

Billy won an Emmy of his own last night and he made history in the process!
