Rebel Wilson is “deeply sad” for last week’s comments landing her in hot water.
On “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” last wednesday, Wilson claimed she was the “first class girl who was the star in a romantic comedy” while discussing her new movie “Is not It Romantic”.  Social media users jumped on Twitter to disprove Wilson’s statement, pointing out as comedian Mo and Nique and rapist Queen Latifah. (Nique recorded in 2006 the romantic comedy “Phat Girlz” and Queen Latifah led 2006 “The Last Holiday” and 2010 “Just Wright”.)
Bridesmaids breakout continued on Twitter’s flames by arguing for a “weak gray surface” on the movies before their time: “It was doubtful about: 1. Technically, these actresses were plus size when they filmed the movies or 2. Technically, these films are categorized / billed as a studio room com with a single lead. “

“Hello my sweet sister. Let’s not let this company erase our talent by giving gray areas and technical features,” Comedy Tweeted Saturday. “Take a moment and feel the story. DO NOT BE A PART OF ERASING IT. I wish you the best.”
