There’s a deeper reason why TikToker Remy Bader called out the ranch after she claimed she was mistreated and “made fun of” by employees…
As her video went viral, the ranch made fun of Bader in response.
And it will only get worse…
The incident took place last week at the Deep Hollow Ranch in Montauk, New York.
Remy Bader showed up with a few others for a ride together.
However, the influencer has since shared that she was not allowed to ride and was even sent home due to her weight…
Something, she admitted, was “very embarrassing.”
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.
“Thanks to Deep Hollow Ranch in Montauk for making me leave because I weigh over 240 pounds,” she wrote in her post. videowhich quickly went viral.
In the caption, she explained that she “never had this problem.”
Adding, “Please advertise this on your signage in the future.”
She later explained in the comments section to her followers after receiving hundreds of messages: “It’s a fact that it wasn’t advertised and how badly it was treated.”
She went on to write, “That was my experience, not yours.”
“It was very embarrassing [sic] to be told that I need to leave in peace when everyone else should stay lol,” she added.
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 shame and distress on social media and in person on a daily basis, and it’s really just exhausting.”
Bader then shared another video referring to tik tak did one of the ranch staff, @Broudy.Keogh, who said, “If you’re not a fat bitch, you can ride Deep Hollow Ranch.”
Bader captioned the video: “Imagine it’s a deep void.” [sic] the ranch’s response to your experience.”
While another commented, “Lol it took this dude 3 seconds to ruin his family’s business.”
“Are we ready to leave these one star reviews ladies??” wrote a third.
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.”
One outraged user wrote: “Teenager employee… in no way matches the views of the owners.” He is the son of the owner, who was incorrectly brought up and clearly trained by someone in these “views”. Absolutely disgusting.”
While another repeated: “This is your son. Makes me wonder where he could get this behavior from. Publicly shaming someone online with the profanity they used is just disgusting. Love your cute little Facebook apologies, but that’s about it. You will not hold your own son accountable for his actions. Gross.”
Unfortunately, the Bader experience is something that many plus-sized Americans deal with on a daily basis.
And the ridicule they experience only exacerbates the problem.
Fat shaming is not healthy “motivation” and should never be used as such.
This behavior, directed at those with weight problems, often makes them worse and can lead them to relapse into bad eating habits.
This kind of mental bullying can cause depression, anxiety, and even eating disorders, causing people to be less likely to leave the house, resulting in less physical activity.
This is the worst kind of domino effect.
I think it’s time for people to be a little kinder to each other, right?
