“Drag Race” star Trinity The Tuck slams Caitlyn Jenner's views on separating trans women in sports: 'She's an oxymoron'

"I think she's a joke, and it's very sad that we have somebody like her that has such a large platform," Trinity tells EW's "Quick Drag" podcast.

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 4 winner Trinity The Tuck is taking the name of her new horror comedy Slay literally when it comes to decimating anti-trans ideology — even when they come from prominent members of her own community.

In an exclusive interview alongside Heidi N Closet for Entertainment Weekly's Quick Drag podcast (below), the Tubi flick's costars break down filming the campy vampire movie — which also stars fellow RuGirls Crystal Methyd and Cara Melle — as well as Trinity's thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner's views on new laws that seek to separate trans women from select sports groups around the country.

Trinity previously beefed with Jenner on social media, leading to the drag queen finding herself banned on X (formerly Twitter). "I'd basically told her a suggestion, if you will, to throw herself in front of a bus. I didn't say that I was going to push her, I merely suggested it as something to do for the community — community service, if you want to call it that," she tells EW when asked for an update on her online feud with Jenner, which began in early 2023, when Trinity (who identifies as trans-nonbinary) tweeted that she wanted to "spit in" Jenner's face after the Olympian called liberals "the least tolerant" group.

"I got banned on Twitter for that, for violence. Girl, I didn't say I was going to do it. I would never push anybody in front of a bus — maybe a van, but not a bus," she jokes.

Trinity's social media posts about Jenner came four years after she satirically portrayed the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and athlete, who came out as trans in 2015, during the RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Snatch Game, a celebrity impersonation challenge.

Since announcing her gender journey, Jenner also became more involved in conservative politics. She ran for governor in California in 2021 before ultimately receiving roughly 1 percent of overall votes in the recall election, while running on a platform that included support for barring trans women in women's sports. Following her gubernatorial loss, Jenner was hired as a Fox News contributor in 2022, and in a 2023 interview with comedian John Cleese, declared that trans women are not "real" women. Just this month, the gold medal-winning decathlete publicly backed a New York county's recent ban on trans women competing in sports alongside cis women.

"I think she's ridiculous. She's a prime example of what the Republican party has turned into. It's a circus, it's all for show," Trinity continues. "I don't even know if she really believes all of this. I think she does all of this for clout, to stay relevant, to keep her name in the press. She hasn't had to live through the same things that most trans women have had to live through. She's very privileged, she got to transition very quickly and [is] accepted into the same spaces that she ran in before."

Trinity also speculates that "Republicans have accepted her because she's a bigot, just like them," but that they "laugh at her" behind the scenes because Jenner is still part of the queer community "regardless if she wants to claim it."

"She's a punchline for them. I think she's a joke, and it's very sad that we have somebody like her that has such a large platform, that people have to listen to speak about these horrible untruths. She's an oxymoron in herself, being a trans woman saying that trans women aren't women. It's ridiculous. She's absolutely ridiculous," Trinity finishes. "And I stand by, if I ever see her in public, I will spit on her."

EW has reached out to a representative for Jenner for comment.
