Last night on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, BenDeLaCreme was once again tasked with sending home one of her fellow contestants home, but also had the power to bring an old contestant back. When it came to bringing a queen back she chose to give Morgan McMichaels another chance but, to the surprise of everyone watching, scribbled her own name down on the lipstick for elimination.
We. Were. Shook.
Shortly after the episode yanked our collective wigs, DeLa hopped on Instagram to address her self-appointed elimination to her half a million Instagram followers. “Thank you everyone for your ongoing love & support,” she writes. “I may have stepped out of the competition, but I will never stop sharing the art that I make and the passion that drives me.”
Trixie Mattel spoke out to applaud their sister DeLa for her graceful bow out.

What say you, gals? Did Ben make the right choice by saying “see ya later” or should she have stuck it out?
