This is so not OK. Social media trolls recently called singer Bebe Rexha “tubby” — but the way she responded to the haters makes us so proud. And you better believe fellow singer (and body-positive icon) Demi Lovato has her back.
It all started on Thursday when Instagram users body-shamed the “I’m a Mess” songstress in the comments section of her post.
“Unapologetically me. thank you for everything @spotify,” she captioned the flawless photo of herself rocking it on stage at a recent performance.
However, some people had very mean things to say — so the 29-year-old singer fired back.
“To all the people tweeting mean things to me about my weight you just want a response and you will not get it,” she wrote in response to the haters’ comments. “Unless you are completely perfect you have no f-cking right to talk about anybody else’s body. The hate you breed that stems from Insecurity don’t look pretty on you.”
To all the people tweeting mean things to me about my weight you just want a response and you will not get it.

You tell ’em, sis!
She added, “I don’t give a two sh-ts about what people think about my weight. I care about what I think about my weight.”
Not long after this all went down, Demi then came to the singer’s defense by calling Bebe “an inspiration” in a sweet Instagram comment.
“You are GORGEOUS, strong, authentic and an inspiration to me and so many. Thank you for being you you BEAUTIFUL, beautiful woman. I love you,” the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer wrote.
This isn’t the first time Demi supported Bebe against haters.
In January, Bebe was nominated for two Grammys and claimed that designers didn’t want to dress her because she was “too big.” SAY WHAT?
She took to Instagram at the time to fire back at fashion industry, stating, “So I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it’s like the coolest thing ever, and a lot of times artists will go and talk to designers and they’ll make the custom dresses to walk the red carpet, right? Like you go to any big designer. So I had my team hit out a lot of a designers, and a lot of them do not want to dress me because I’m too big.”
The “Skyscaper” singer couldn’t believe the news and supported Bebe by sending some love in the comments section of her post.
“F–king preach!!!” the 26-year-old star said. “Love this and you for speaking your mind and using your voice!!!”
Women supporting women — that’s what we love to see!
