After the incident, she took to TikTok with a video that saw her call them out for making her leave because she weighed "over 240" even though she had successfully ridden horses before and the ranch has a list of choices suitable for plus-sized riders.

REMI BADER FIGHTS BINGE EATING DISORDER
In May 2022, Bader shared a candid three-minute video that revealed to her fans that she's looking into treatment for a binge eating disorder she suffers from.
The video started with her explaining how happy she is for the success she has enjoyed so far in her career as an influencer and stating that she genuinely loves what she does.
Afterward, she confessed that she had struggled with her self-image over the past couple of months. According to her, things were getting worse where her body and confidence were concerned. Then, she admitted that much of it stems from her binge eating, which she says is not getting better.
To that end, she said she planned to start a six-week outpatient program, where she would spend a few hours on some days to help her get it under control.
For confidentiality reasons, she said she would not be able to share what happens there with her fans but promised to give them an update the moment she completes the program.
The TikTok star reportedly started binge eating to deal with the stress she had to endure while working her former job in the music industry. Mayo Clinic defines binge eating as an eating disorder that makes someone regularly consume "unusually large amounts of food" with no ability to stop.
WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN REMI BADER AND THE RANCH?
On May 11, 2022, Bader joined a bunch of other TikTok influencers on a trip that saw them visit Deep Hollow Ranch in Montauk, New York.
Unfortunately, according to a video she shared on the famous app, the establishment denied her the chance to ride any of the horses because of her size.
The caption that followed the video revealed that she had ridden horses before but had not experienced the issue. Then, she advised them to advertise it on their signs for future purposes.
She also stated that she did not need opinions and was madder at how terribly the situation was handled. She wrote:
"It was very embarrassing [sic] to be told I need to leave alone when everyone else got to stay lol."
To add insult to injury, a TikTok user who has been confirmed to be a teenage employee at the ranch called her "fat" and told her when she was no longer that way, she would be allowed to ride.
The video has since been deleted, and Deep Hollow has apologized even though they did not specify to whom they referred.
