While promoting the film “Avengers: Infinity War,” actor Tom Holland sent Twitter into a meltdown for confusing “RuPaul’s Drag Race” with car racing.
In an interview for Absolute Radio, Holland and co-star Benedict Cumberbatch were playing a game of “Showbiz Scenarios.” The game gives three celebrities and has the guests choose which celebrity would be best in that scenario.
Cumberbatch and Holland are asked “Who would win ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’? Tom Hiddelston, Bradley Cooper, or Robert Downey Jr.?”
“I think Downey would win at Drag Race because he has the fastest cars,” Holland replies.
Cumberbatch corrects Holland saying “Ah, it’s not that kind of Drag Race. RuPaul, man.”
Holland’s answer was also ironic considering he went viral for dressing in drag and lip-syncing to “Umbrella” on “Lip Sync Battle.”
Twitter reactions ranged from shock and awe to sympathy.

Now has distinct visual of Tom Holland going to a ‘Drag Race’ themed party in a little racing outfit, looking at all the wigs and high heels and going: “Where are the cars?”
