The 'Drag Race' presenter's Twitter and Instagram accounts disappeared offline on Thursday (02.07.20), with no prior warning.

The Twitter account no longer exists and the Instagram profile - which has over 4.2 million followers - is visible online but all the posts have been removed, with fans noting they were taken down one by one.

The 59-year-old star previously attributed his success to being adaptable to change.

He said: "In this life, if you can stay flexible, you have a really good chance of navigating a really rich experience for yourself on this planet."

And the drag star claimed identity is an "illusion" and he's always been drawn to what he was as "irreverent".

He said: "It's all a lie -- this world is a lie. So don't base your value on the lie.

"I've always been attracted to things that were irreverent, [like] Monty Python, I thought, 'Oh, there's my tribe!'

"Because even as a kid, I knew that I had a sense that none of this was real, that it was all an illusion and that it would be a mistake to base my value on the lie: Boys, go here. Girls go there. Blacks over here, whites over here ... all these superficial rules we come up with are just BS!"

And he explained how he turned to drag as a form of "social commentary" and has never set out to "pass" as a woman.

He said: "We did drag as a social commentary. It was a reaction to the Reagan '80s, and it wasn't trying to look real or pass [as a woman]. It was a rebellion against the status quo."
