Rebel Wilson Apologizes After Being Accused of Blocking Black Critics Over ‘Isn’t It Romantic?’ Debate
After being criticized for both claiming that she’s the first plus-sized woman to star in a romantic comedy and blocking those who pointed out her error on Twitter, Rebel Wilson has issued an apology. “In a couple of well-intentioned moments, hoping to lift my fellow plus sized women up, I neglected to show the proper respect to those who climbed this mountain before me like Mo’Nique, Queen Latifah, Melissa McCarthy, Ricki Lake and likely many others,” the star of the upcoming “Isn’t It Romantic?” tweeted.

“With the help of some very compassionate and well-thought out responses from others on social media, I now realize what I said was not only wrong but also incredibly hurtful,” Wilson continued.
