Candace Owens says parents supporting drag queens are 'unqualified to have children'
The Candace Owen Show
A TalkTV panellist has criticised McCain Foods over its use of a drag queen in an advert for oven chips.
Writer and broadcaster Emma Webb appeared on the show where she slammed the frozen food company for using a “very vivacious drag queen” in its oven chips commercial.
Iconic drag queen Baga Chipz featured in the ad that has now been pulled following complaints, according to Campaign Live.
Webb explained that in the ad, Baga created a dish using potato smilies and used pieces of meat to create “massive knockers”.
She criticised the ad, claiming that she saw comments from women who argued that “this is ‘womanface’, like blackface” and said women were offended.
Webb continued claiming: “Drag queens are something that are inherently sexualised, they’re a sexualised performance, like burlesque.
“We’ve seen all throughout Pride these images of people who are doing sexual things and being sexualised around children at Pride events.
“And now to have a drag queen, as if that somehow represents the gay community, but to have a very sexualised drag queen presenting and advertising a children’s food, I think there are a lot of people who are very annoyed about it.”

Someone else pointed out: “Emma, most children are aware of drag courtesy of Pantomime Dames, a British tradition that dates back to 1806.
“If they don’t, being exposed to drag is no safeguarding issue unless you hold the homophobic opinion that #LGBTQ+ culture is detrimental to children?”
