Pop singer Bebe Rexha snagged a Grammy nomination and, thus, began her search for the perfect custom dress to wear on the red carpet.
Unfortunately, the fashion world is aÂ bit critical andÂ narrow-minded.Â
Bebe’s team was told by a number of designers that they wouldn’t dress her because she was “too big.”
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. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys. #LOVEYOURBODY pic.twitter.com/0nqdjXf0Dw

Bebe wasted no time calling out the shameful situation on Instagram and Twitter.
Fans of Bebe and her team came to her side. Rexha, who is a size 6/8 in dresses was appalled that a designer wouldn’t dress her, or anyone for that matter, over their size, especially when her size is totally standard.
Thanks everyone for the love! We have dressed @BebeRexha a few times and would love to do it again!

Then, two Project Runway contestants came to her rescue, offering to lend theirÂ skills to dressing Bebe for the big night.
Size discrimination is so last year.
