Fans Are Accusing A Former ‘Drag Race’ Queen Of Lying About An Uber Car Crash

Former RuPaul’s Drag Race season eight contestant Robbie Turner is being accused of lying about his Uber driving dying due to a car crash.

Turner, who’s given name is Jeremy Baird, tweeted that he woke up in a hospital totally unaware of how he ended up there. He was told he was in a car accident and the driver “did not survive.” Turner credits wearing his seatbelt for being the thing that saved him.

A handful of hours later Turner tweeted again explaining in greater detail what happened. He said that a drunk driver crashed into the Uber he was in the night before. He said that he closed his eyes, could hear the crash, hit his head and that was it. He awoke in the hospital and only suffered a few bruises, a jammed shoulder and his right eye hurt.

Turner’s mentions were filled with fans and other drag queens offering their support. But things got fishy when fans started to look into the accident, some have concluded that it didn’t even happen.

A Drag Race stan Instagram looked into the accident because an Uber driving dying at the hands of a drunk driver is a big deal. Turner lives in Seattle, Washington, so the account did some digging and found some major holes in Turner’s story.

They figured “SOMEONE had to have called 9-1-1 for her to be taken to hospital” and he claimed to be unconscious so he couldn’t have called himself or driven himself to the hospital. Turner tweeted on April 15 that he had a gig last night. Drag shows are typically very late in the night so he probably wasn’t in an Uber until after midnight.

The stan account checked the Seattle Police Department’s 911 Incident Response website to check the 911 calls from that morning/night. There was only one report on April 14 at 10:40 P.M. about a motor vehicle collision with one injury. The accident doesn’t line up to what Turner said, nor does the injury report. The account came to the conclusion that Turner is lying.

Turner has yet to clear the air on his fake Uber death and injuries. Drag Race fans have been having a field day with his unraveling lie. Even some former Drag Race contestants got in on it.

The day after tweeting about the incident Turner tweeted, “The show must go on…” with a link to buy tickets to his upcoming performances. Fans are now believing he created this lie to stay relevant and sell tickets.
