“RuPaul’s Drag Race” stars Farrah Moan and Shea Coulee faced a homophobic attack in a U.K. kebab shop on Sunday night. The incident was captured in a Snapchat video.

Moan and Coulee were on tour in Newcastle, U.K. and stopped to eat at a kebab shop. An allegedly drunk customer began verbally harrassing them with slurs like “slut” and “f*ggott.”

“Why are you so greasy?” Moan asks the woman.

“Why are you so gay?”, the customer replies.

“We’re touring the world being gay while you’re living in Newcastle with your crusty-ass eyelashes,” Moan says.

The customer calls Moan “a walking STD” and starts touching Moan.

“Don’t touch me,” Moan says moving away from the woman.

The video began circulating online causing Moan, real name Cameron Clayton, to explain the situation on Twitter.

“Hahaha I didn’t maintain my classiness to well in the video… I was drunk as hell and some lil girl came up to Shea and I with her phone calling us faggots, walking stds cuz my hair was pink and I guess she was white girl wasted,” Moan tweeted.

When Newcastle residents began apologizing for the incident, Moan made it clear the woman’s behavior didn’t reflect on the whole city.

“so I didnt wanna bring attention to the negativity that happened to me and shea last night in Newcastle at a kebab shop but the vid is spreading. No need to apologize on behalf of the city- our show was amazing and theres homophobic twats all over the world. Love you guys,” Moan tweeted.

According to the BBC, Northumbria Police are aware of the altercation.

“We do not tolerate this type of behaviour in our city,” the police said in a statement.
