didn’t fare much better as Michelle accused her of throwing insults not jokes. The difference is subtle, but she pointed out-jokes offer you a pass only if they are funny.
Once she has sufficiently scared all the contestants one-on-one she let loose the final bombshell. The roasting was done in front of a live audience. Every bad joke would now be 100 times worse.

and Coco refused to accept Jinkx’s mild mannered routine. “Many jokes and two faces. Jinkx Monsoon,” said Coco.
