On March 4th, 2020, 25-year-old actor Ben Shimkus made a post on Facebook detailing his experiences being sexually coerced by Sherry Pie, real name Joey Gugliemelli, a drag queen competing on season 12 of RuPaul's Drag Race.[1] After Shimkus' post multiple other victims came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Gugliemelli.[2] On March 6th, 2020, Gugliemelli admitted to sexual misconduct in a Facebook post made to the official Sherry Pie account,[3] and on the same day VH1 released a statement announcing that Sherry Pie had been disqualified and would not be appearing at the season finale scheduled to be filmed in spring 2020.[4] VH1 also announced that the rest of season 12 would air as planned out of respect for the work of the other competing queens.

Despite VH1 claiming that they would air season 12 as planned, footage of Sherry Pie has been removed from the episodes following her disqualification; her confessionals, her Frozen runway and the #TeamSherry segment at the end of episode 12 did not air, and have yet to be released or shown to the public in any capacity.
