RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Sherry Pie has apologised after five actors came forward accusing the queen of catfishing – pretending to be someone else online.
Joey Gugliemelli, known as Sherry Pie on the US reality show, allegedly posed as a casting director and asked the men to record themselves.
One of the victims claims to have performed an act on camera which was ‘particularly sexual and awkward’ as part of a fake audition process.
He explained on social media that he was duped into believing he was auditioning for a part in an upcoming New York play.
Sherry has now issued an apology on Facebook, stressing she’s sorry for causing so much ‘trauma and pain’.
‘I know that the pain and hurt that I have caused will never go away and I know that what I did was wrong and truly cruel,’ she said. ‘Until being on RuPaul’s Drag Race, I never really understood how much my mental health and taking care of things meant.
‘I learned on that show how important “loving yourself” isand I don’t think I have ever loved myself.
‘I have been seeking help and receiving treatment sincecoming back to NYC. I truly apologize to everyone I have hurt with my actions.I also want to say how sorry I am to my sisters of season 12 and honestly thewhole network and production company.
‘All I can do is change the behaviour and that starts withme and doing that work.’
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Drag Race for comment.
