Again, I am deeply sorry'.

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

"I'd like to make it known that every Black woman (and others) who was blocked, including myself, was very gracious and took the time to educate her on why she was incorrect and wrong in her erasure of plus-sized icons Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique-though we didn't need to", Kent explains.

Rebel Wilson has taken to Twitter to apologise after she claimed to be the first ever plus-sized woman to lead a romantic comedy.

While on her press tour to promote her new film Isn't it Romantic, the actress sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and made a bold claim that she was the "first plus-size girl to be the star of a romantic comedy".

Wilson responded with a lawsuit which she won but was later forced to pay back a substantial sum.

There's a clear chance Samsung could also tease its foldable phone at the event to gauge the interest of the developer community. So, we are not sure if it'll be available globally or will be introduced in select markets only, if it ever gets announced.

While the shift in the entertainment business is welcoming a progressive and more accepting approach in films at a frequent pace, Hollywood star Rebel Wilson may have told herself she is the first-plus sized actor to appear in a rom-com. The Pitch Perfect star went on to say that she supports everything plus-sized women have done over the years.

Instead of responding to the critiques or posting a screenshotted apology, she dismissed them, calling the films starring Mo'Nique and Queen Latifah a "slight grey area".

Which led to Mo'Nique urging Rebel to "know the history". "To which Wilson replied, it was never my intention to erase anyone else's achievements and I adore you and Queen Latifah so so much".

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

Rebel replied by insisting she never meant to erase anybody else's achievements, and added, "I support all plus size ladies and everything positive we are doing together".
