Drag Race UK star Vanity Milan has issued a statement after the latest episode of Canada vs the World. 

Spoilers ahead

For this week’s maxi challenge, the queens were tasked with bringing their best spy impressions for the frock-buster movie Spy Queens. 

“Spy Queens tells the story of five bad-ass spy sisters, who, when things get squirrely, band together to save the mother-puckin world,” said guest judge Traci Melchor. 

Because Victoria Scone won last week’s lip-sync, the UK-based queen was tasked with assigning the roles – which resulted in Rita Baga playing The Mother of the House, Silky Nutmeg Ganache as The Lip Sync Assassin, Ra’Jah O’Hara as The Body Ody Ody and Vanity as The Look Queen. 

Following a hilarious read-through of the script, the queens headed to the sound stage to film the action-filled feature. 

While most of the contestants delivered great performances, Vanity, unfortunately, struggled to land her lines – specifically regarding the “My Dressing Room” scene. 

After strutting down the runway in their best Y2Gay 2000s Club Kids ensembles, the contestants assembled on the main stage to watch the final cut of Spy Queens – which resulted in Rita, Ra’Jah and Victoria earning praise for their performances.

In the end, Brooke Lynn Hytes named Victoria and Rita the top two queens of the week, leaving Vanity and Silky up for elimination. 

After the top two queens performed an electric rendition of Estelle’s Freak, Rita was named the winner – which resulted in her sending Vanity home. 

Following the episode’s release, the UK-based queen issued a heartfelt statement regarding her tumultuous time in the Drag Race franchise. 

“After RuPaul’s Drag Race UK S3, I felt the lowest I had ever felt. I received non-stop hate and was constantly made to feel bad for my placement because I was “carried through the season” due to the colour of my skin and being the only Black queen on my season,” Vanity wrote. 

“That stuck with me for a long time, and there were moments where I wanted to quit drag. I pushed myself and continued because I never wanted to disappoint or let anyone down, but deep down in the back of my mind, I felt like a disappointment.” 

The beloved queen went on to thank her husband for noticing that her “mental health needed some attention” and taking care of her during the tough time. 

Towards the end of her statement, Vanity revealed that she wanted to shut down the naysayers with her Canada vs the World appearance by showcasing more of her talent and skills.

“After last night’s episode, I can proudly and loudly say: “I am an icon, I am a legend, and I am the moment, no matter my placement,” she concluded. 

In response to her statement, Drag Race fans flocked to social media to send love and praise to Vanity. 

One person wrote: “A genuine legend. Love to you.” 

Another fan tweeted: “Vanity, you ate! Period!”
