“stop throwing stuff at artists!! asshole behavior,” one person said. “Assaulting celebrities is too normal and not ok,” someone else wrote, as more users went on to recall similar injuries recently endured by artists like Harry Styles and Lady Gaga.

Several Twitter users then went on to discuss the way that Bebe has been mistreated by the public over the years. Just a few months ago, for example, the star was left upset and “discouraged” after seeing that she was trending on TikTok over her weight.

“I literally feel so bad for her. The way she gets treated by the general public & music industry is so horrible. I wanna give her a hug so bad,” one person wrote.
