Late-night US television host Jimmy Fallon has explained why he thought he was going to be canceled after a clip from an interview with drag queen RuPaul went viral.

RuPaul is one of the most notable drag queens in the world, thanks largely due to the huge success of his show RuPaul Drag Race, and had appeared on The Tonight Show to promote the new season of the show.

In the viral clip, Jimmy had called RuPaul a drag queen, and was immediately cut off by the star saying “drag queen?!” Jimmy looked terrified, thinking he had got something wrong, before RuPaul clarified that he is “the queen of drag.”

Jimmy’s face was priceless, and the internet immediately started joking about how clearly he had thought he had messed up, with the clip amassing over 7 million views throughout the weekend after it happened.

Though Fallon sees the funny side now, he reiterates how terrified he was during the conversation, saying that he “honestly thought it was over.”

“That’s it, I’m canceled,” he said. “I started my own hashtag, #JimmyFallonIsOverParty. I was like ‘I had a good run, I had 10 years in the business.’ But it was so funny.”

Jimmy went on to repeat RuPaul’s appalled “drag queen” exclamation with a brilliant impersonation, before extending his thanks to the Queen of Drag and calling it a “very funny moment.”

Jimmy wouldn’t be the first person to have a hashtag to celebrate canceling them – earlier in January 2020, #DuaLipaisOverParty was trending on Twitter because of her appearance at a Los Angeles strip club.

This might be one of the greatest pranks we’ve seen pulled on national television, and Fallon will no doubt think twice before he dares call RuPaul a drag queen again.

A number of TikTok stars have hit out at paparazzi, asking them to stop “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson after a video of them at the airport was uploaded to YouTube. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a number of creators like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae, and Bryce Hall have become stars thanks to their viral videos. 

However, the fame and popularity that social media brings, fans want to know more. They’re desperate for updates on relationships, where their favorite stars are living, and how they’re getting on away from the TikTok videos. 

Many of TikTok’s stars will conduct interviews with paparazzi and other media outlets on a regular basis, but one has come under fire from TikTokjers for apparently “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s biggest star, and garners the most attention.

Kevin Wong posted a video of Charli and Chase reuniting at LAX. However, it didn’t go down well with some of the pair’s fellow TikTok stars. 

“You’re taking stalking to a new level. Give them some privacy,” Hype House founder Thomas Petrou said. He also added a simple message, asking Wong to stop as well. 

Additionally, Mia Haywood and Bryant Eslava posted similar messages as Petrou. “Did you really follow them to the airport? Chill with that,” said Mia. “Damn, this is too far Kevin,” added Bryant.

Wong responded with a comment of his own, claiming that he was already at the airport waiting for somebody else, and hadn’t actually followed the D’Amelio’s anywhere. 

“I was already at LAX waiting for someone to show up, then I saw a big white Rolls Royce drive around and saw Mr D’Amelio & Charli,” he said. 

Neither of Charli or Chase have responded to the drama themselves, and it might just be a case of others fighting the battle for them. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if any similar responses come up in the future, or if the pair decide to respond themselves.
