Rebel Wilson Faces Backlash Over Comments Made On 'The Ellen Show'

The "grey areas and technicalities" Mo'Nique spoke of were brought up by Wilson herself after a Twitter user pointed to Mo'Nique and Latifah's films.

She did, however, respond to Mo'Nique when the Oscar-winning actress joined the conversation to remind her not to erase black women.

Rebel has not addressed the fan reaction to her original comments, but in another Tweet told playwright Claire Willet: '[I] will address when promoting the film in proper forums'.

A Twitter user saw the quote and quickly pushed back on the statement, noting that Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique have both starred in rom-coms.

As Georgia Byrd in 2006's "Last Holiday", Queen Latifah fell for LL Cool J's Sean Williams after embarking on a luxury European vacation assuming she had just weeks to live. Technically those films are categorised/billed as a studio rom-com with a sole lead.

The Aussie actress, who shot to fame thanks to the Pitch Perfect franchise, is no doubt hoping this negative backlash won't affect the release of her new movie Isn't It Romantic. "Let's please not allow this business to erase our talent with giving grey areas and technicalities", the Oscar victor said. I wish you the best, ' the 50-year-old wrote.

Explaining her words, Rebel replied: 'Hi Monique, it was never my intention to erase anyone else's achievements and I adore you and Queen Latifah so so much x. 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.

She plays a New York City architect Natalie who after a bump on the head discovers her life has become a living romantic comedy and it won't end until she falls in love.

The movie also stars Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, as well as Adam DeVine and Priyanka Chopra.
