Suffice to say, Rebel Wilson probably didn’t have a “Super Fun Night” yesterday.

After the Aussie actress launched her new loungewear label, R&R Club, earlier this month, she was called out on social media this week for its lack of size inclusivity.

On TikTok and Twitter, users noticed that the collection, which boasts $179 hoodies and $149 sweatpants, was only offered in sizes XS through XL. 

Critics were quick to accuse her of “fatphobia,” since she was plus size for much of her career — until embarking on a “year of health” in early 2020 and losing roughly 80 pounds — but wasn’t offering more inclusive sizes in her own collection.

On Tuesday night, Wilson took to her Instagram Stories to respond to the backlash.

The “Bridesmaids” actress said that she and partner Ramona Agruma “are experimenting with this limited capsule collection of only two pieces in limited sizes,” and that if they prove successful, the pair “are planning on doing more colours and sizes.”

She also asked followers to weigh in with the “colours or sizes” they would be “interested in for sweats.” In another snap, she said the collection is “Almost SOLD OUT,” signifying larger sizes could be offered soon.

Before she defended her brand on social media, the “Senior Year” star, 42, was faced with influencers posting critical clips. 

On TikTok, creator Destiny Ann said, “I don’t understand how someone who is plus size for the majority of her career and the majority of her life — someone who knows hard it is to be fat, to shop for clothing and actually find it in your size — I don’t understand how someone with that background, that knowledge, can release a brand that only goes up to an XL.”

the irony of rebel dropping a clothing line that she wouldn’t have even been able to shop at a few years ago 🙃 #rebelwilson #plussizefashion #sizeinclusivefashion #greenscreen

Destiny Ann went on to point out the “irony” and called the limited sizing “so disheartening.”

In the comments section of the TikTok video, one person accused the “Pitch Perfect” actress, who found fame playing Fat Amy, of “disassociating herself from the person she used to be.”
