Rebel Wilson Defends Her Friend Matt Lucas After His 'Little Britain' Blackface Controversy

Rebel Wilson is defending her friend, Bridesmaids co-star Matt Lucas, after his show Little Britain was pulled from Netflix over the use of blackface.

“I know my mates Matt Lucas‘ show Little Britain [was removed]…I think that’s a bit crazy. They obviously play many different characters on that show…He’s amazing, he’s the kindest, most decent human being ever,” Rebel said about the issue on Studio 10.

“There’s a lot of discussion right now about what’s off limits in comedy…where should comedians not go?,” Rebel was asked.

“It’s really hard…because at the moment we’re in a time of hyper social justice because there’s so many important things happening in the world, obviously right now racial equality is such an important issue. But for the past few years, especially with the #MeToo movement, there’s been a lot of social justice going on, which has made it difficult for comedians to flirt with that line. The thing is, throughout history, from way back with the court jesters in the monarchy, a comedian’s job is to flirt with the line of what’s acceptable,” she responded.

About if past controversial material should be erased, or viewed as a learning experience, Rebel added, “I’m not a fan of just erasing things. I think with history, you should learn from it. If you erase it, it’s a bit like denying it ever happened. That doesn’t seem like a good plan!”

Amid the Coronavirus lockdowns, Rebel actually revealed her fitness goals and goal weight.

Rebel Wilson Reveals Her Goal Weight Amid New Fitness Plan

Rebel Wilson is opening up about her fitness journey and her goal weight amid her new workout plan.

The 40-year-old Pitch Perfect actress took to Instagram to share a new selfie and talk about her goals for the year.

“Even if you have to crawl towards your goals, keep going x it will be worth it. Try and give a little bit of effort each day…I know some days are frustrating as hell, you feel like giving up, you get annoyed at the lack of progress…but good things are coming your way 🤘,” Rebel captioned the photo.

She added, “What are your goals this year? I’ll be honest with you guys – with my ‘Year of Health’ mission I’m trying to get to 75kg’s (165 pounds) and career wise am trying to get one of my movies into production before the end of the year! Both of these things are requiring a daily effort and there’s constant set backs – but I’m working hard.”

Last week, Rebel put her fit figure on display in a black dress. See more recent photos in the gallery here!

Just recently, Rebel opened up about putting a positive message out there for plus size actors.

“I am the average size of the American and Australian woman, and yet plus-size actresses have less than one per cent of all leading roles, I think, even though they are the majority of women,” she shared in an interview.

Rebel continued, “If you think about it in those terms, it’s still really important to have representation like me in those type of leading-lady roles because it’s still unfair.”

“The beauty standards put up there, especially for young women, [they] can be unfair at times. I’m so proud of the film, of the message. In the works that I do, I am trying to put those positive messages in there.”
