Tamron Hall is facing backlash for an upcoming interview with disgraced drag queen Sherry Pie, who was disqualified from RuPaul’s Drag Race last year.
Sherry Pie, whose real name is Joey Gugliemelli, was accused of catfishing by many men. Gugliemelli allegedly posed as a casting director to have actors send him videos of themselves performing sexual acts as audition tapes. He later released an apology, seemingly admitting to the abuse.
Now, Tamron will be interviewing Sherry Pie on the Tuesday (February 16) episode of her talk show.
Tamron says in a promo, “On the next Tamron Hall, one of the breakout stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Sherry Pie, booted from the show after being hit with lewd accusations of catfishing men. For the first time Sherry Pie comes clean. What really happened, next Tamron Hall.”
The talk show host is being slammed on Twitter for giving Sherry Pie a platform and for the language used in the promo, which diminishes the victims.
