DRAG QUEEN pop icon, RuPaul, owns 66,000 acres of prosperous land in Wyoming, and leases the mineral rights to oil and gas operators.
In an interview with NPR, RuPaul Andre Charles (RuPaul) revealed she owned a "modern ranch" and had no problem leasing the mineral rights to oil and gas operators.
The interview was conducted by Terry Gross and centred on RuPaul's "recipe" for a successful life.
RuPaul, who became a household name by creating reality television series RuPaul's Drag Race, noted a major step in her success was owning the ranch along with her Perth-born husband Georges LeBar.
"A modern ranch, 21st-century ranch, is really land management," RuPaul said.
"You lease the mineral rights to oil companies. And you sell water to oil companies. And then you lease the grazing rights to different ranchers."
Social media exploded following RuPaul's transparency that she benefited financially by leasing mineral rights to energy companies.
Thousands of Twitter users accused RuPaul of promoting "dangerous" fraccing.
"Finding out RuPaul fucking fracks is like being slapped across the face after being shoved to the ground by coronavirus and kicked by boomers," one twitter user said.
