Rebel Wilson Responds When Mo’Nique Calls Her Out On Claims To Be ‘First-Ever Plus-Sized Girl’ To Star In A Rom-Com

- Halfapintdoll (@Halfapintdoll) November 1, 2018 Wilson responded to the tweet, but only to defend her already incorrectly proven statement. One Twitter user wrote, "I love @RebelWilson as much as the next girl, but she isn't the first plus sized woman to play the lead in a romantic comedy". Technically those actresses were plus size when filming those movies or 2.

And on Tuesday, Australian actress Rebel Wilson apologised for her controversial comments, after copping backlash from fans and after American actress Mo'Nique spoke out to correct her.

Rebel Wilson, who has openly discussed and joked about her weight, will soon star in Isn't It Romantic, a romantic comedy about romantic comedies.

It was during an interview to promote the film on the Ellen show, that criticism of WIlson began after she said: "I'm proud to be the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy".

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".

At the time, Rebel doubled down and replied that there is a "slight grey area" in the debate, causing more friction with the online community and a reaction from Mo'Nique herself.
