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

Rebel Wilson had been talking about her film Isn't It Romantic on The Ellen Show last week when she made the comments about being plus-sized.

'Hey my sweet sister. Let's please not allow this business to erase our talent with giving grey areas and technicalities.

Year Old Son Charged With Murder In Mother's Death
Gregory's two friends, both 17-years-old, are facing charges of being accessories to a crime after the fact, authorities said. It is not clear yet whether the teenagers will be charged as adults, and none of the defendants have entered any pleas.

'I love @RebelWilson as much as the next girl, but she isn't the first plus sized woman to play the lead in a romantic comedy, ' one wrote.

Fans have also pointed out that actress and rapper Queen Latifah, 48, also starred in the 2006 rom-com Last Holiday.

Apple holiday forecast misses on iPhone demand, shares fall
For its full fiscal 2018 ended in September, Apple reported revenue of $265.6 billion, beating analyst estimates of $264 billion. Shares in Facebook Inc, Amazon.com Inc, Netflix Inc and Google-owner Alphabet Inc all rose on a generally buoyant Wall Street.

Wilson responded, writing that "it was never my intention to erase anyone else's achievements and I adore you and Queen Latidah so much..." That same year, Mo'Nique starred as the "succulent" Jazmin Biltmore in "Phat Girlz", where she romanced a buff Nigerian doctor, Tunde Jonathan (Jimmy Jean-Louis), at a Palm Springs resort.

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. In particular, numerous critics of color - many of whom brought up Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique in their comments - reported being blocked by Wilson over the weekend. Technically those actresses were plus size when filming those movies or 2. "So there's a slight grey area".

In upcoming film Isn't It Romantic, Rebel stars opposite Liam Hemsworth as a woman who is struck on the head and wakes up in a romantic comedy.

No, the president cannot end birthright citizenship | Marc Thiessen
According to the Constitution Center, there was no time period for ratification of a proposed Amendment by the states. When a Mexican mother gives birth in the United States of America , that child is automatically an AMERICAN citizen.

Rebel also said she would be addressing this controversy when she's starts doing press for the film (clever girl!), but the fact that several black Twitter users claimed they were blocked by the actress for trying to start a dialogue with her certainly doesn't help her case.
