Mo'Nique responds to Rebel Wilson's 'plus-sized' romantic comedy claims

- Mo'Nique Worldwide (@moworldwide) November 3, 2018Rather than acknowledging that she was wrong, Wilson responded to Mo, saying she wasn't trying to "erase anyone's achievements". "I'm proud to be the first ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy".

Twitter was quick to point out, however, that Wilson overlooked a number of plus-size actresses who've starred in romantic comedies before.

For one, Just Wright and Last Holiday starring Queen Latifah, as well as Phat Girlz with Mo'Nique.

During an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show, the 38-year-old explained she was "proud to be the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy".

"Hey my sweet sister".

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". "I wish you the best", Mo'Nique tweeted. "Technically those films are categorized/billed [sic] as a studio rom-com with a sole lead", she wrote. "So there's a slight grey area", Wilson tweeted.

Gary Lineker sends message to Arsenal fans about Unai Emery
We know that we can still do better and the League is very tough - you have to fight for every game. "Millie is a proper leader". Coming away from Arsenal and being disappointed with a draw is a positive, and also the amount of chances we created".

Mashable also reported that Wilson began blocking critics on Twitter, specifically critics of color.

When several people pointed out how incorrect her statement was on Twitter, Rebel responded to her white critics but blocked several critics of colour, causing the #RebelWilsonBlockedMe hashtag to start trending.

Wilson did tweet in a reply to playwright Claire Willett Saturday that she will address what happened "while promoting [Isn't it Romantic] in the proper forums".

"I blocked people on Twitter because I was hurting from the criticism, but those are the people I actually need to hear from more, not less. I support all plus size ladies and everything positive we are doing together".

Liam Hemsworth, Priyanka Chopra, and Adam DeVine also star in the rom-com set for release on Valentine's Day, 2019.
