The 26-year-old TikTok star later took to the social media platform to share her experience at the ranch, detailing how she was mistreated by the staff.

Bader captioned the video: “Imagine it’s a deep void.” [sic] the ranch’s response to your experience.”
The ranch later apologized for its employee’s TikTok. writing“We have come to know that a rancher video was posted on TikTok and a teenage employee posted a response that in no way reflects or aligns with the views of the ranchers.” […] “We would like to apologize to everyone this offended and we do not condone or agree with any part of this employee’s video.”
After the whole ordeal, Bader spoke to PEOPLE, where she addressed the situation, sharing that she appreciates “every kind word and support since yesterday. I also want to say that I would never want to ruin or ruin a small business unless I REALLY felt it was necessary.”
Although she has gone so far in accepting and loving her body, she also acknowledged in her statement that it is moments like these that are negatively impacting her progress.
“I really feel like every time I’m at my best and feeling a surge of confidence, he immediately shuts down with those experiences. […] It has become normal for me to come to terms with body shaming and suffering on social media and in person on a daily basis, and it’s really just exhausting.”
I hope this can be an example for businesses of how No play.
