Veronica Green has revealed that she left a WhatsApp chat for the RuPaul's Drag Race UK Series 2 queens, after her sister on the series, A'Whora, was filmed calling her a "c*nt".
Recently, footage was shared widely on social media of A'Whora on stage playing Snog, Marry, Kill. She says: "I would kill Veronica Mean. Why? Because she’s shit. She’s annoying and she’s a little c*nt backstage."
Veronica was eliminated in the latest episode of Drag Race UK after failing to impress the judges with her two camp-inspired lewks and being outmatched in the lip-sync by Vanity Milan.
While speaking to Attitude and Tia Kofi for Tea Time, in association with Taimi, the world's largest LGBTQ+ social and dating app, Veronica confirmed A'Whora had reached out to her privately saying, "I ignored I and then left the season 2 WhatsApp chat.
"The timings not right. When I feel ready, I will talk to her. We can have a proper chat about it and talk about it," she added. She also said that she doesn't mind people having their opinions of her recognising you can't please everyone.

"People are free to say whatever they like about me behind my back because people’s opinions of me is [sic] none of my business. So, I don’t actually hold that against her. It’s not nice to listen to when you’re being tagged in by a million and one people, but she can say that and that’s her right to have that opinion of me."
Veronica reveals the issue she had with the video was that A'Whora discussed spoilers for the current series of Drag Race UK and revealing that Veronica went out early. This, Veronica says, was a "bridge too far" and a "low blow".
Lastly, she says: "I’m sure we’ll talk about it at some point. It’s something that is not resolved. It’s not. But I couldn’t speak about what I was bothered about because I’m under contract and couldn’t say anything until I was eliminated. We will talk at some point, but I’m not ready for that yet."

Discussing her season three Drag Race sisters, Veronica told Tia and Attitude that there is a close bond between them all and that she had hung out with some of them.
"I’ve been out to watch musicals with River, I’ve been out with Ella, I talk a lot with Anubis as well. I’ve got a connection with Elektra. Me [sic] and Charity are going to have a hang-out once the whirlwind of the show dies down.
"There is not a single queen that I do not talk to. Every single one of them I’ve bonded with. Every single one of them I want to get to know more. I can’t wait for that to happen."
Asked about who she thought her biggest competition was on the show Veronica said it was Victoria Scone, Krystal Versace, and Charity Kase. She also saw Ella Vaday as a contender, coming from a similar musical theatre background.
Reflecting on her journey on the show Veronica said: "I thought I was making it to the end. I did. I looked around the room and I thought ‘I can do this’. But it wasn’t meant to be.
"I’m at peace with the journey on the show. And who knows, if it’s the right time and the offer came in I wouldn’t turn down an opportunity."
