“Today a man harassed 3 teenage girls calling them ‘whores’ outside of Starbucks. I immediately told him that he was inappropriate, and to not speak to young women that way,” Shea Couleé, Ru Paul’s Drag Race All Stars 5 winner tweeted on Wednesday. She said the man called her the F-slur and the N-slur during the altercation. “So I threw my full iced Americano in his face.”

So, winner of AS5 and our hearts. Also, such a chic Starbucks order, and definitely the chicest thing to throw at someone.

She went on in a follow-up post, “Then some crusty old white dude told me that my reaction was uncalled for even though he sat there the entire time while this man harassed these other girls and myself,” and admitted, “I have NEVER in my life thrown a drink on someone. And can I just say, it felt incredible?” Love that for her.

This comes not long after the winner of Drag Race UK season 1, The Vivienne, was attacked in the United Kingdom in June.

“Just been attacked in McDonald’s, Police on way. Homophobia alive and well folks!” The Vivienne tweeted, and later, “He’s been arrested and in custody. Result, it’s so important that as a community we report and take action on hate crimes. Otherwise, it continues to happen. Time to set an example!”

Then, because this year sucks, Drag Race Holland winner Envy Peru was attacked in Holland in July.

“No one should go through this, and these cowardly actions should be punished,” she wrote.

Punished indeed, and hopefully with more than an iced Americano in the face.
