However, Rebel had a change of heart on Monday night and issued a lengthy apology in a series of tweets, admitting that she "neglected to show the proper respect to those who climbed this mountain" before her, listing Mo'Nique and Queen Latifah as well as Melissa McCarthy and Ricki Lake. She claimed that she was the "first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy".
A Twitter user saw the quote and quickly pushed back on the statement, noting that Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique have both starred in rom-coms.
Others went a step further, and said Wilson's comments amounted to another example of black erasure in popular culture. Rebel was quick to respond, detailing what she meant from her comment: "Yeah I of course know of these movies but it was questionable as to whether: 1".
Still, Wilson stood her ground amid the backlash, insisting on Twitter there were some "grey areas and technicalities" around what constitutes a rom-com, and proceeded to block critics on Twitter who said otherwise.
Commentators took to Twitter to point out that actresses such as Mo-Nique and Queen Latifah have paved the way before her, but Wilson refused to be corrected, questioning whether "technically those actresses were plus size".
