Jimmy Fallon's Face Is A Picture After RuPaul Pretends To Be Offended

Jimmy Fallon's Face Is A Picture After RuPaul Pretends To Be Offended

Viewers of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon often enjoy the host's choreographed skits and features with his celebrity guests - but it was a seemingly unplanned moment between him and RuPaul that got people talking after his show on Thursday.

As Fallon held up a copy of Vanity Fair, featuring RuPaul on the cover, he said: "This was gigantic, this was the first time a drag queen has ever been put on the cover of-"

At this moment, Fallon's guest interjected in a seemingly disgruntled tone: "A drag queen?? A drag queen?!"

The studio then fell silent as Fallon froze, looking deeply fearful he had said something out of line.

Mercifully for Fallon, RuPaul then added: "I am the queen of drag!"

With the awkward silence broken and the tension lifted, the audience broke out in rapturous cheers and applause, while Fallon laughed nervously and took a deep breath before apologising to his guest.

Of course, this could have been a rehearsed little moment between the two, but if it was then it was undoubtedly the most convincing performance Fallon has ever delivered.

Judging by the reaction on social media, it seems most people are in no doubt the 45-year-old s*** himself in that moment.

One person said: "LMFAOOOOOOO Jimmy Fallon thought he was about to get CANCELLED I'm SCREAMING."

Another added: "Fallon: oh no what did I do, isn't the term drag queen, did I offended him... is the lgbtq community coming for me... is my late night career over..."



A third added: "DRAG QUEEN? DRAG QUEEEEN?!?" Jimmy was scared s***less thinking he had given offense."

Another said: "Jimmy Fallon already started seeing #jimmyfalloniscancelled trending when he thought he offended RuPaul"

Well, the host will no doubt be relieved that #jimmyfalloniscancelled is not trending, though #jimmyfallonthoughthewascancelled may as well be.
