Pitch Perfect Actress Rebel Wilson Responds to backlash over “Plus Size” comments

Rebel Wilson released statements on Sunday 4 November, responding to backlash over her “plus size” claims, tweeting that she “never wants to disrespect anyone.”  When Rebel featured as a guest star on The Ellen Show last week, she stated that she is proud to be the first ever plus-sized girl to star as the lead of a romantic comedy. However, Rebels’ comments received backlash from viewers who pointed out that Queen Latifah and Mo’Nique had both stared on romcoms before. Mo’Nique has since called Rebel out on Twitter asking her to “please not allow business to erase our talent.”  Rebel Wilson stated that she would address all arguments when promoting for her film, Isn’t It Romantic, on proper forums.
