*And that’s why they call her ‘rebel’ folks!
Comic-actress Rebel Wilson had the Internet’s panties all in a knot when she had the nerve to show love out loud for Idris Elba (and at the same time, poo on #oscarssowhite) during her opening intro at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards on Sunday.
You know comedians, they are going to do their own thing no matter what. Just give them a platform and its on from there.
So here we have Wilson, a stand-up comedian, actress and writer from Australia who has mainly made a name for herself based on her edgy style and delivery. At the awards podium she appeared to be reading line by line from a written script (as opposed to a teleprompter); which had her spoofing issues currently in the news.
One being #oscarssowhite.
