Kennedy Davenport Responds to Adam Rippon’s Tweet Quoting Her

Adam Rippon just got an All Star response to one of his tweets.

Bronze Olympic medal winner Adam Rippon had a message for the haters on Twitter today. On the social media site, he wrote, “To all those who tweet at me saying that they ‘hope I fail,’ I have failed many many times in my life. But more importantly, I’ve learned from every setback, proudly own up to my mistakes, grown from disappointments, and now I’m a glamazon bitch ready for the runway.”

For those who don’t get the reference, Rippon is referring to drag queen Kennedy Davenport’s infamous Drag Race season 7 undead look.

Davenport saw the tweet and responded.

“Yes Baby NOW Walk to your blessings.. a greater door shall be open unto you.. Believe and receive,” Davenport said.

Seeing Davenport supporting Rippon led some people to tweet about the legendary meeting.

Though Rippon has gotten mounds of love for his performance at the Olympics, his most vocal opponent has been vice president Mike Pence, who has been in a feud with the Olympic skater, leading Rippon to forego going to the upcoming White House Olympic team reception.
