Demi Lovato showed support to fellow singer Bebe Rexha after she publicly slammed designers for refusing to dress her for the Grammy Awards because she wears size 8! Now, Demi praised Bebe for speaking out and using her platform to bring awareness to fat-shaming.
‘F***ing preach! Love this and [love] you for speaking your mind and using your voice!!!’ Demi commented and made sure to add some clapping emojis as well!
As fans know, Demi Lovato has been very open about body image issues as well so it makes sense that she is showing love and support to another celeb doing the same and going through things she can relate to.
Bebe Rexha took to her platform on Monday to express her frustration in a video.
She made sure to slam all of those designers who have been rejecting her requests for a dress since they consider her figure too full for their creations.
‘So I finally got nominated at the GRAMMYs and it is like the coolest thing ever. And a lot of times artists go and talk to designers, and they would make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet in. So I had my team hit out many designers, and a lot of them don’t want to dress me because I am too big. Literally, like, I am too big,’ she said in the footage.

Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest. If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing. But don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys. #LOVEYOURBODY
She went on to tell them she would not want to wear their dresses anyway since they deem size 6/8 to be too big.
‘That is crazy. You are saying that all the women in this world that are size 8 and up are not beautiful and they cannot wear your dresses.’
