Lucian Piane has taken to Twitter in what some are calling an odd rant that is not only filled with seemingly racist sentiment, but anti-Semitic, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic as well.

Piane is a music producer and a regular guest judge on Ru Paul’s Drag Race. He sometimes writes the music for the weekly drag challenges. 

The meltdown began after Piane faced some criticism saying he would vote for Donald trump over Hillary Clinton. He ended up ticking his ballot for Jill Stein instead.

His Twirade seems to want to incite some feelings by using questionable speech such as “Tranny Chaser” and referencing people with AIDS: “You’re [expletive] hot for a parasite infected fa**ot.”

He then posted a picture of his own alleged penis with the message: “Check out my AIDSY hobo d*ck China!”

His commentary continues, making use of the n-word several times, seemingly trying to advocate for African Americans to reclaim it, or suggesting that white people use it more to rid it of its derogatory meaning. 

“If it takes a pansy ass queer cracker homo fa**ot to tell ni**ers they are loved, so be it. You are loved.”

He responds to several people who criticize him for using the ephiphet:

"No. Holding onto a "racial slur" is arming racists. THAT is racism. And it's perpetuated by the liberal media."

Later he mentions Ru Paul saying, “I love @RuPaul, and he's the wisest ni**er I know!!!”

This caused Ru Paul to respond on his feed mentioning concern about mental illness, although he doesn't name Piane personally: 

"Please show some compassion. We are ALL just a few blood sugars away from a psychotic breakdown." -@RuPaul


"People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. We ALL walk a fine line when it comes to mental health. Please show some compassion." - @RuPaul

Some have wondered if Twitter admins will shut down Piane's account as they have done with several alt-right members for inciting hate and harassment. 

As of this writing Piane's account is still active.
