Bebe Rexha: My dad’s not a bad guy

Pop star defends her father over his ‘stupid pornography’ remarks
If you’re doing what you love or feel comfortable doing, NOBODY, your parents included, should make you feel lesser about it. Bebe Rexha recently got a earful (or the message equivalent of it) from her father Flamur Rexha when he told her he was “embarrassed” because she was posting “stupid pronography” (his words, not ours).
The pop star posted that message from her father on her Instagram Stories only to quickly delete it after getting critical comments from fans picking on her father for making those remarks about his daughter.
The singer later deleted the screenshot from social media and took to Twitter to defend her dad. “Don’t say mean things about my dad please he is an amazing father,” she told her followers in a now-deleted post, adding that her dad is “not a bad guy.”
“I should of never have posted that screenshot,” she tweeted. “I’m disappointed in myself. I was being sarcastic. I understand where he is coming [from] as a father and that’s why the text was a bit harsh. I am upset that he still isn’t speaking to me, but he is still my father.”
This comes just days after Bebe shared that her Last Hurrah music video was flagged as “sensitive” on YouTube.
“My video was flagged as ‘sensitive’ on YouTube,” she tweeted last week. “So it can’t trend now.”
“I am woman who is living unapologetically. I’m not gonna be made to feel bad about making ART,” she added in a second tweet. “And yes, art to me is my beautiful ass out, boys kissing boys, girls kissing girls, crosses on my body. IF A MALE RAPPER PUT OUT THAT VIDEO OUT IT WOULD BE FINE.”
