Bebe Rexha called out TikTok for highlighting a suggested search about being overweight.
“Seeing that search bar is so upsetting,” she tweeted above a screenshot which shows “bebe rexha weight” written into the related search history. “I’m not mad cause it’s true. I did gain weight. But it just sucks. Thank you to all the people who love me no matter what.”

Fans showed support to Bebe Rexha, wherein one wrote, “I love her for being so unique and real, she loves herself inside and outside and we can see it.” Another wrote, “Beautiful she is.”.
People also called out TikTok’s interface for suggesting the search terms. “Someone at @tiktokus’s policies team needs to change what comes up on the related search bar, right now! This is toxic and terrible!” YouTuber Kandee Johnson wrote. “@TikTokSupport you need to do better. Care about the people on your platform and not make it toxic like this.”
Bebe Rexha’s self-titled third album ‘BEBE’ will be out this month, and is preceded by the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 David Guetta collab ‘I’m Good (Blue)’ and follow-ups like ‘Heart Wants What It Wants’ and ‘Call on Me.’
