Conchita Wurst, a drag queen who represents Austria, is being blamed for causing floods in three countries! She… or he, whichever they prefer, has been put to blame by religious leaders for the floods that killed as many as 50 people.
Mr/Miss Wurst was the winner of Europe’s biggest singing contest, the Eurovision Song Contest which takes place annually. Her real name is Tom Neuwirth and she won the competition easily while beating out the Dutch and Swedish entries.
A Serbian Orthodox cleric, Patriach Amfilohije, stated, just after Conchita Wurst’s victory that: “This is not a coincidence, but a warning… God sent the rains as a reminder that people should not join the wild side,”
There were an additional 150 000 forced to flee their homes from the floods. What a ‘drag’.
