Rebel Wilson faced backlash over comments she made on 'The Ellen Show'

The actress spoke about her upcoming film 'Isn't It Romantic' admitting her pride in knowing she's "the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy."

This didn't sit well with viewers who later took to Twitter to point out that both Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique played lead roles in romantic comedies.

Wilson later responded to the tweet pointing out the "grey area[s]".

It wasn't long before Mo'Nique herself got involved requesting Rebel "not allow this business to erase [their] talent with giving grey areas and technicalities."

Watch Rebel's full interview on The Ellen Show below:

In the same interview, she hinted at a fourth Pitch Perfect film.
