Looks like Rebel Wilson is not happy being single anymore and isn’t afraid to shout it out loud… even if it evokes the fury of her whole fan base.
The star's fans weren’t at all happy with her choice of words, and even called Rebel out for slut-shaming.
The funnywoman took to social media to complain: “Why do guys always go for those bikini-clad vapid skanks? And not the smart, successful Australian girls??”
More than a few of her 2.6 million followers were furious at her comments.
Fans are not happy with the actress's attack on skinnier women.
The 36-year-old was on the receiving end of a torrent of comments, slamming her for her remarks.
“Why do you feel the need to slut-shame others? It’s not nice, Rebel,” one user wrote.
Rebel talks about having to squeeze into a leotard for a movie role... and an unfortunate incident that occurred afterwards in the clip below. Post continues.
Rebel was well and truly called out by her fans.
And the comments just kept coming: “Calling other women skanks isn’t cool, Rebel. Be better than slut shaming.”
Then there was the kicker for the Aussie: “So much for the sisterhood”.
Rebel talks about her own positive body image in the clip below. Post continues.
The actress is currently starring in a staged production of the musical Guys and Dolls.
The star has spent a great deal of her air time trying to promote a body positive image for women who don’t fit the mold of what’s “in” in Hollywood.
And that was a huge sticking point for some of her fans, who were unhappy the Pitch Perfect star was happy to push a message for larger women to love their bodies, but not skinny women.
“Slut shaming and being body negative to another group of girls isn’t going to change anything. Come on,” one disappointed user wrote.
There’s no word yet from Rebel on the comments.
