She wrote: “Thank you, @Beyonce !! Genesis and I love

Davis and her Genesis weren’t the only people who received the collection from Queen B. But, the feedback they received on social media has been phenomenal.

“That brown & copper on her skin >>> VIOLA DAVIS ate that Icy Park. Beyoncé should just permanently book her for Ivy Park campaigns. PERIOD,” commented @DecoloniseZA.

But his wasn't well-received as tweeps dragged him, and accused him of stealing opportunities from drag performers who have been in the industry for a much longer time.

However, he did clarify that it wasn't a paid shoot.

“As an Adidas ambassador, I was sent two outfits. In hindsight, as a heterosexual man, I should have worded the caption differently. I do understand the issue that people have, but give me the benefit of the doubt. I am a drag queen , and I hope that we can get to a point where different rules don’t apply to me because I am straight," he told IOL Entertainment.
