Rebel Wilson reacts to ‘exit’ controversy, Paper deletes column and apologizes

“Senior Year” actress Rebel Wilson broke her silence on the whole “coming out” controversy on Sunday in a post on Twitter. And, while responding to a netizen, who accused the Australian newspaper of giving the actress two days notice to come out as gay, the 42-year-old said she was trying to manage the situation difficult with grace.

“It was a very difficult situation but I was trying to handle it with grace,” the actress tweeted.

The ‘out’ controversy began a day after the star shared news of his relationship with girlfriend Ramona Arguma on social media. As the Sydney Morning Herald published an opinion piece by journalist Andrew Hornery stating that they had given Wilson a two-day deadline to come out as queer, the publication was met with a backlash online.

After complaining on Saturday about being watched by the actress’ queer story, Hornery wrote a new column on Monday to apologize for her reaction and comments. The Herald deleted Saturday’s column and replaced it with the news.

In the new column, Hornery wrote that as a gay man he understands and is aware of the pain of discrimination and regrets that “Rebel found it difficult”. He said he thought the actress would be happy to discuss her newfound love, but they “got the steps wrong” in their approach.

On Friday morning, Wilson had posted on Instagram, with the hashtag #loveislove, that she thought she was “looking for a Disney prince.”

On Thursday, the newspaper contacted the actress to comment on her relationship with Arguma.
