Contributor: PEDESTRIAN.TV

Jeff Goldblum is coming under fire for comments he made about a contestant’s outfit on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Goldblum was a special guest judge on the recent “Stars And Stripes” episode, which featured NYC-based queen Jackie Cox in this incred outfit:

“You can be Middle Eastern, you can be Muslim, and you can still be American,” Jackie said in the voiceover, according to

When facing the judges, Joff Goldblum asked Jackie “Are you religious, may I ask?” to which Jackie responded ‘I’m not. To be honest, this outfit really represents the importance that visibility for people of religious minorities need to have in this country.”

But Jeff continued, saying:

“Is there something in this religion that is anti-homosexuality? And anti-woman? Does that complicate the issue? I’m just raising it and thinking out loud and maybe being stupid.”

Things got DEEPLY awkward, as you can see in this clip.

His comments raised a lot of questions on social media, with fans getting pretty upset.

Many people made the point that there are a lot of religions with homophobic laws and teachings.

Jeff Goldblum has not made a comment at the time of publication.
