Conservatives Pressed that Lactatia Is Getting Her Money As Face of Clothing Designer

Some people just get mad when someone else is getting their check.

Faux outrage hit new levels when conservative media outlet The Daily Caller attempted to call out clothing brand The House of Mann for featuring nine-year-old drag queen Lactatia as its Covergirl.

The campaign features Lactatia in a sequined onesie. According to House of Mann designer Brandon Hilton, he woke up to several tweets telling him to commit suicide and calling him a pedophile for featuring Lactatia in his campaign.

Conservative blogger Matt Walsh, who thinks trans people are ill, quote tweeted Hilton and said, “I don’t want you to kill yourself but I do want you arrested and jailed for the sexual exploitation of a child, you sick, deranged predator.”

At the crux of the issue is that House of Mann, aside from selling onesies, also sells harnesses and other fetish-inspired fashions, along with harem pants, sunglasses, and bodysuits.

This is the part of the article where we note that Lactatia was only ever pictured wearing a onesie and not any of the other gear.

Lactatia first took the internet by storm in June when she told Bianca Del Rio to her face that her favorite RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant was Ginger Minj.
