Rebel Wilson Has Been Blocking Her Critics On Twitter

November 5, 2018 / Posted by:

Rebel Wilson has done such a bad job managing her latest publicity crisis that’s she’s inspired her own hashtag on Twitter. If you can’t post to #RebelWilsonBlockedMe, are you even trying? Rebel’s troubles began when she appeared on the Halloween episode of Ellen. She was there to talk about her upcoming romantic comedy Isn’t It Romantic . Rebel excitedly noted that she was “first plus-size woman’ to play the lead in a romantic comedy”, which is not true.

Even though Rebel has been known to tell a fib or two, I wouldn’t call that a straight-up lie, maybe it was more of an oversight. Quite a few folks on Twitter, many of them black women and women of color, kindly reminded Rebel that Queen Latifah, Mo’nique and Ricki Lake had all been in rom-coms before her. And here’s where Rebel could have said, “point taken, I misspoke” but that’s not how Rebel rolls. Instead she doubled-down, and got to blocking the haters/information sharers.

Here’s Rebel’s first response to somebody bringing up the fact that Mo’Nique and Queen Latifah had both starred in rom-coms before her.

Rebel, Rebel. How are you so bad at this?! Where is this alleged grey area where you aren’t sure if a Fox Searchlight movie called Phat Girlz starring Mo’nique isn’t a rom-com starring a plus-size woman? Even Mo’nique herself had to chime in on that one.

Rebel responded to Mo’Nique later.

After that, she really should have just sat there and ate her rice, but she didn’t. She started blocking people instead.

And folks started seeing a pattern in who she chose to block…

And who she chose to respond to…

Well, at least Rebel can now brag that she’s the first plus-sized actress to ever have a hashtag dedicated to her to be gleefully worn as a badge of honor.
