Bebe Rexha got a little upset when some “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestants didn’t recognize her at VH1’s Trailblazer Honors.

Rexha, 28, opened the show with a performance of “In the Name of Love” but tweeted that things weren’t so friendly backstage.

“I met some of the contestants from ru Pauls drag race and I wasn’t in Hair and Makeup so they didn’t know it was me and they were COLD af,” she tweeted.

“The funny thing is they actually presented my performance. But ladies it doesn’t take much to be nice. Eureka was the only one to hug me,” she continued.

Rexha elaborated on her experience saying that “They just were cold and didn’t talk to anyone like they were the shit. And they seemed exhausted, but try my schedule and let’s talk ladies.”

Eureka responded to Rexha tweeting “We love you!!!!! Trust me and we were so honored to announce you if anything we were a lil nervous and Anxious. I hope to meet you again so we can change this opinion. Love you.”

Aquaria also replied directly to Rexha saying she was “mushy brained” during their interaction.

“I totally was so mushy brained that I didn’t realize until it was too late but lady you sounded INCREDIBLE in ur performances and I am living for the new album!!! Congrats and we need a picture next time,” Aquaria tweeted.

Rexha accepted the apology tweeting back “It’s okay sis. I get it. I was just really sad, cause I really love you guys, I just want to be you’re best-friend.”

However, in a Twitter thread Aquaria sounded off on Rexha slamming the “Drag Race” girls.

“We’re really just artists who were being swept through a crazy week in our lives where we nearly had a second to take things in,” Aquaria tweeted. “I don’t think any of us would intend to be rude or shady to any other performer and if people knew anything about us it’s that we are far more humble and real than anyone else would expect. Instead of being grateful and enjoying the night. We’re now on twitter complaining about the same thing everyone always tries to pit on drag queens that we’re stuck up bitches who don’t have time for the people who enjoy our work. We were all so impressed with the performances at the trailblazers and so grateful to be included.”
