Rebel Wilson definitely stepped in it last week while on Ellen. While promoting her new movie the actress made the very bold and very incorrect statement of being the first plus-sized actress to star in a romantic comedy. “I have two love interests in the film…I’mm kind of proud to be the first plus size girl to be the star of a romantic comedy.”

Watch below.

Black Twitter, and frankly all of Twitter quickly reminded the 38-year-old Austrailian just how late she was. Like real late. She clearly forgot about Queen Latifah and Mo’Nique’s characters in Living Single and The Parkers, and social media had a field day letting her know.

Mo’Nique even weighed in.

And apparently, instead of acknowledging the truth, she simply misspoke, Rebel has since blocked critics, namely black ones, that have questioned her stance. And we aren’t surprised one bit. Remember when we talked to the cast of Living Single this summer to celebrate 25 years of their iconic show? Watch below.
