Rebel Wilson got blowback after telling Ellen DeGeneres that she is "proud to be the first ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy."
Viewers took to social media to point out that Queen Latifah and Mo’Nique had led romcoms before.
Mo'Nique tweeted at Wilson: "Let's please not allow this business to erase our talent".
Wilson replied, writing: "It was never my intention to erase anyone else's achievements".
Wilson appeared on The Ellen Show last week to promote Isn’t It Romantic.
