‘The Queers Are Coming!’ Declares Irish Eurovision Singer Bambie Thug

Ireland’s self-described “queer witch” Eurovision contestant declared that the “queers are coming” after the victory of fellow “non-binary” performer Nemo from Switzerland.

In a tearful press convention following the Grand Finale of the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sweden, Bambie Thug (actual identify Bambie Ray Robinson) declared a victory for the LGBTQIAP2S+- group, as Swiss “non-binary” rapper Nemo was topped the winner of the competition on Saturday.

Thug, who claims to be “non-binary” and goes by “they/them” pronouns, mentioned: “I’m so proud for Nemo for profitable… I’m so proud that every one of us are within the high 10 which were preventing for this shit behind the scenes as a result of it has been so arduous and so horrible for us. I’m so pleased with us.

“The world has spoken. The queers are coming. Non-binaries for the fucking win!”

The 31-year-old singer has been publicly at odds with the organisers of the Eurovision contest, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) over the involvement of Israel on this 12 months’s competitors and has logged a grievance with the EBU within the hopes of getting Israel banned from subsequent 12 months’s Eurovision.

“We are what the Eurovision is. The EBU is not what the Eurovision is. Fuck the EBU. I don’t even care anymore. Fuck them. The thing that makes this is the contestants, the community behind it, the love and the power and the support of all of us is what is making change.”

Bambie Thug has accused Israeli broadcaster Kan of violating the foundations of the competition and having “incited violence” in opposition to her after a commentator on the broadcaster warned viewers on Tuesday that Bambie Thug’s efficiency can be “the most scary” of the night, and contain “a lot of spells and black magic and dark clothing, Satanic symbols, and voodoo dolls”.

The Kan commentator went on to say, according to the Daily Mail, that Bambie favored to “speak negatively about Israel… But we can talk about that later. Prepare your curses.”

“The broadcaster [Kan] has disobeyed the rules and I hope next year they won’t be able to compete because of that,” Bambie Thug mentioned on Saturday night.

“We brought it [rule break] up to the EBU. They said they would follow up,” the Irish singer continued per RTE. “They waited to the last minute, we still haven’t gotten a statement back to us, [they] allowed us to be scapegoats, allowed us to be the spokesperson for standing up for ourselves.”

Despite criticism from Bambie Thug and large-scale protests within the multicultural host metropolis of Malmö in opposition to Israel’s participation within the pop competitors, 20-year-old Jewish performer Eden Golan secured the second most votes from the general public, solely trailing behind Croatian singer-songwriter Baby Lasagna. Golan, who was booed a number of occasions throughout her performances, got here in fifth place within the competitors, besting Bambie Thug, who got here in sixth place.
