A fan came at actress Rebel Wilson for claiming she was the first plus sized actress to play the lead role in a romantic comedy, during in interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The fan brought up Mo’Nique and Queen Latifah, which ultimately led to a back and forth between Wilson and Mo’Nique via social media. “Hey girl! Yeah I of course know of these movies but it was questionable as to whether: 1. Technically those actresses were plus size when filming those movies or 2. Technically those films are [categorized]/billed as a studio rom-com with a sole lead. So there’s a slight grey area,” Wilson responded to the fan.
Mo’Nique caught wind and chimed in. ““Hey my sweet sister. Let’s please not allow this business to erase our talent with giving grey areas and technicalities,” she said. “Take a moment and know the history. DON’T BE A PART OF ERASING IT. I wish you the best.”
Wilson responded, “Hi Monique, it was never my intention to erase anyone else’s achievements and I adore you and Queen Latifah so so much x I support all plus size ladies and everything positive we are doing together ❤️”
Hopefully there’s no bad blood between the two actresses.
