Wilson did respond to Mo'Nique when she directly reached out, but that doesn't seem to have stopped her from blocking people for saying exactly what Mo'Nique is saying.
The Australian actress was criticised for claiming she was the first plus-size actress to lead a studio rom-com, when both Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique have led their own in the past.
"In an interview on the Ellen show, she said: "I am proud to be the first-ever plus size girl to be the star of a romantic comedy", Wilson told DeGeneres, also mentioning that the film is her debut as a producer".
MoNique then responded to Wilson writing, "Hey my sweet sister". Technically those films are catorgorized/billed as a studio rom-com with a sole lead. Let's please not allow this business to erase our talent with giving grey areas and technicalities, ' the 50-year-old commented.
At the time, Rebel doubled down and replied that there is a "slight grey area" in the debate, causing more friction with the online community and a reaction from Mo'Nique herself. There were even people creating hashtags like #RebelWilsonBlockedMe and #RebelBlockMeParty to commemorate being blocked by the actress.
While Wilson has yet to apologise, in another tweet to playwright Claire Willett she promised that she "will address [the argument] when promoting the film in proper forums".
'I support all plus-size ladies and everything positive we are doing together, ' the actress concluded.
Many on Twitter accused Wilson of ignoring the achievements of black women and blocking them when they pointed it out.
Wilson sat down with DeGeneres Oct. 31 to chat about the film, which co-stars Adam DeVine and Liam Hemsworth and opens on Valentine's Day 2019.
