When fake news and the most surreal side of our existence come together, things happen like the one that happened to Katya Zamolodchikova, a drag queen who rose to fame for participating in the seventh edition of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and in the second of ‘All Stars’. Her personality as a Russian woman has ended up eating the person who gives her life and his image has been circulating on the Internet for days together with an accusation of being an agent of the Russian left.
Katya Zamolodchikova, accused of being a Russian spy
For some strange reason, several accounts from Chile have spread the following message accompanied by several photographs of Katya. « Attention! Russian narco-chavista groups and their failed coup attempts will not bring Chile down. This is Yekaterina Petrovna Zamolodchikova, better known as Katya. She is a Russian agent (yes, from a movie … incredible) who gave information to left commandos to provoke a coup« , informed the publication.
« However, the Investigative Police discovered her and deported her. Be careful! This will not appear on TV because they are with the progressive campaign. Spread it so that it is known! These bastard communists try to destroy Chile, let’s not let them« The message warned. Several media echoed this information, some of which denied it and uncovered that, in reality, Katya is a fictional character who gained popularity in 2015 thanks to RuPaul.
Nothing to do with Russia
His real name is Brian Joseph McCook and he was born in Boston (United States). There is nothing that unites Russia and when it created its drag identity in 2006, was simply inspired by various comics and took the last name of her favorite gymnast, Elena Zamolodchikova. « Never again a Russian whore! » Katya wrote on her social networks when several users sent her the surreal hoax that she is actually a Russian spy. Her sense of humor, along with her provocative Soviet identity, was undoubtedly what made the talent show team look to her to compete twice in the Werk Room, and what made her a one of the most beloved queens of the format.
