In particular, numerous critics of color - many of whom brought up Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique in their comments - reported being blocked by Wilson over the weekend. "Again, I am deeply sorry".

Rebel had appeared on the Halloween episode of "Ellen" to promote her upcoming movie "Isn't It Romantic", and shared how "proud" she is to have top billing because it marks a trailblazing moment for fuller-figured actresses.

It was that bold comment which caused a backlash, with several viewers of the show taking to Twitter to question Rebel's claim.

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

Rebel Wilson caught some heat on Thursday for declaring herself the first plus-sized woman to be the lead in a romantic comedy.

Naturally, the internet was quick to point out that Wilson's remarks were, in fact, incorrect, and Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique have already captured that title. Yeah I of course know of these movies'. Technically those actresses were plus size when filming those movies or 2.

As Georgia Byrd in 2006's "Last Holiday", Queen Latifah fell for LL Cool J's Sean Williams after embarking on a luxury European vacation assuming she had just weeks to live.

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". Technically those films are categorised/billed as a studio rom-com with a sole lead.

Another Twitter user who begs to differ is Mo'Nique, star of the 2006 rom-com "Phat Girlz" and she issued a gentle reminder that one should "know the history" before making claims. "So there's a slight grey area", Wilson tweeted. "I wish you the best".
