'Deeply sorry': Rebel Wilson apologises for plus-size claim

Share

Wilson responded with a lawsuit which she won but was later forced to pay back a substantial sum.

However, Twitter users quickly pointed out that others have already achieved that milestone, with one now-viral tweet referencing Queen Latifah in "Last Holiday" and "Just Wright" and Mo'Nique in "Phat Girlz".

The 38-year-old Australian actress will star in the upcoming film, Isn't It Romantic, about a New Yorker who bumps her head and wakes up in a world characterized by romantic-comedy clichés and jokes. Technically those actresses were plus size when filming those movies or 2.

Varadkar separately told reporters that an expiry date of that nature would not be worth the paper it is written on. She has insisted that any backstop agreement would have to include a mechanism to bring an end to the backstop.

It wasn't long before Mo'Nique herself got involved requesting Rebel "not allow this business to erase [their] talent with giving grey areas and technicalities". "Technically those films are [categorized]/billed as a studio rom-com with a sole lead", she wrote.

Wilson has now reportedly blocked a number of critics of her "Ellen DeGeneres Show" claims on Twitter, inspiring a #RebelWilsonBlockedMe hashtag. So there's a slight grey area, ' she replied. "I wish you the best", Mo'Nique tweeted. Film critic ReBecca Theodore-Vachon summed up the deeper problem of Wilson's claim and behavior succinctly, saying, "Black women's bodies don't matter when it comes to White women like Rebel Wilson". Wilson eventually responded to a tweet from playwright Claire Willett and said she will address what happened "while promoting [Isn't it Romantic] in the proper forums". "I support all plus size ladies and everything positive we are doing together". Next, Wilson's choice to block people of color for criticizing her also makes her seem not only unwilling to listen, but unwilling to listen to voices different from her own.

Liam Hemsworth, Priyanka Chopra, and Adam DeVine also star in the rom-com set for release on Valentine's Day, 2019.
