Chicago drag queen Trannika Rex has invited Phil Robertsonthe star of the TV show Duck Dynasty who has been embroiled in a public debate on free speech after uttering anti-gay remarks in an interview with GQ Magazineto one of her shows.
And, of course, the drag queen does it with a splash of sass.
"Despite your recent comments in GQ about gay people and our anuses, as well as your comments about how Black people were happiest in the Jim Crow South, I still think you're great. An inspiration even," Rex wrote in her letter to Robertson. "I'd like to personally extend an invitation to you to attend my drag show [on Jan. 20] and hell, I'll even pay for your flight to Chicago. It seems that you're very educated in gay culture so I'd like you to come see our interpretation of your culture in all of its beauty. Do you know a place to buy reasonably priced pink camouflage by the yard?"
Rex will host "Trannika's Most Wanted: Tuck Dynasty" on Jan. 20 at Scarlet Bar in Lakeview.
"This month's theme is a tribute to your glorious television show and my biggest drag inspiration, Duck Dynasty," Trannika Rex said in the letter, which was sent to Robertson and personnel at A&E, which airs Duck Dynasty.
Trannika Rex said on Jan. 12 that she had not yet received a reply from Robertson, his personnel or the TV network.
