Bebe Rexha Says A Big ‘F*ck You’ To Designers Refusing To Dress Her For The Grammys Because She’s ‘Too Big’ ????

It’s self worth in the key of Tyra Banks!

Back in 2007, Tyra Banks told paparazzi who were making fun of her weight gain to “kiss [her] fat *ss”.

Now, 12 years later, singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha, who has both recorded her own music and written songs for Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas and Eminem, is heading to her first Grammy Awards, but has found herself the subject of hurtful judgment on the way.

Bebe Rexha took to Twitter on Monday after a series of hurtful comments directed at her size—not by paparazzi, but by industry professionals, who are refusing to make dresses for her because she is “not a runway size.”

“So I finally get nominated at the Grammys, and it’s like the coolest thing ever,” she starts. “A lot of times, artists will go and talk to designers, and they’ll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet, right? Like, you’ll go to any big designer.”

“So I had my team hit out a lot of designers, and a lot of them do not want to dress me because I’m too big.”

“Literally, I’m too big.”

Rexha’s dress size is 6 or 8, depending on the make.  For reference, the average dress size of an American woman is between 16 and 18.

“If a size 6-8 is too big then I don’t know what to tell you. I don’t wanna wear your f–king dresses ’cause that’s crazy!” she continues. “You’re saying that all the women in the world that are size 8 and up are not beautiful and they cannot wear your dresses?”

“All the people that say I’m thick and I can’t wear dresses: F–k you! I don’t wanna wear your f–king dresses.”

Rexha’s story has caused such a stir online that other celebrities have come to her with suggestions:

Her story has also attracted the attention of other designers, who would be happy to take business away from these pretentious designer brands:

Rexha’s story is sadly not unheard of.

In 2016, Leslie Jones tweeted about a similar struggle to find a dress for the Ghostbusters premiere.

That is, until Christian Siriano stepped up to the plate.

And a few other… offers as well.

Other celebrities who have been refused dresses by designer brands over the years include Melissa McCarthy, Christina Hendricks, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jennifer Hudson, and Gabourey Sidibe.

Needless to say, this is ridiculous.

Hopefully Rexha’s post will bring some much needed attention to the issue.

The Grammy Awards will air on February 10th, 2019.

Tune in then to see who dressed Bebe Rexha. Take notes.
