“RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3” wrapped its season after Trixie Mattel’s win but some fans still aren’t over Shangela not taking the crown.
In a video posted on Facebook, Shangela surprised some of her young fans, who were left in tears at her loss, with an uplifting message.
“I hope you can find inspiration in my journey to NEVER GIVE UP. No matter what is thrown your way, no matter what challenges you must face…. Keep your head up. Feel the feelings, and then find a way to press forward. Let your resilience be your Win,” Shangela captioned the video.
One fan sobs as her mother tries to console her with the hope that RuPaul might invite Shangela back for another All Stars season.
“But that might be a long time,” she cries.
The “Drag Race” star sends her a message thanking her for the support and encouraging her to stay positive.
Another fan cries in despair over the eliminated queens receiving the power to choose the winner.
“But I wanted her to know she deserved it more than Kennedy,” she cries referring to Kennedy and Trixie Mattel landing top two instead of Shangela.
The girl receives a special video of Shangela featuring fellow “Drag Race” contestants Aja, Kennedy Davenport and BeBe Zahara Benet.
