'Project Runway' Star Geoffrey Mac Breaks Down Over Best Friend's Death Due to Coronavirus
Project Runway season 18 winner Geoffrey Mac is mourning the death of a loved one due to coronavirus.
On Monday, the 42-year-old designer took to Instagram to share that his best friend, Nashom Wooden, has died. Wooden was a well-known drag performer in New York City, who went by the name of Mona Foot. Mac tearfully relayed the news in a video, clearly distraught over Wooden's death.
"Hi, it's Geoffrey Mac. I lost my best friend today from the coronavirus, Nashom Wooden," the designer says, choking back tears. "And I just want to make sure that everybody out there stays healthy and takes care of each other because the virus is really real. And, I'm just so sorry."
On Twitter, more people mourned Wooden's death.
