Rebel Wilson has come under fire after the launch of her clothing line was slammed for a lack of size inclusivity.
The Australian actress recently launched R&R Club, a loungewear fashion brand, with her partner Ramona Agruma.
However, the initial launch raised eyebrows of Rebel’s fans, as the first collection is only available in sizes XS, S, M, and L/XL.
The largest size in this collection, which roughly equates to a size 14-16, excludes a lot of larger-sized people who are fans of the actress and wanted to get their hands on her new products.
Rebel herself was formerly “plus size” before embarking on her “year of health” in 2020 which saw her lose more than 30kgs.
As a result, fans have been left “bitterly disappointed”, with many taking to social media to slam the actress’s choice.
In a TikTok video captioned “can we talk about the lack of size inclusivity in Rebel Wilson’s brand”, one woman said she was “confused” by the move.
“I don’t understand how someone who was plus size for the majority of her career and majority of her life, as someone who knows how hard it is to be fat and to shop for clothing and actually find it in your size…” the TikTok user said.
“I don’t understand how someone with that background, that knowledge, could release a brand that only goes up to an XL.”
“People’s biggest argument for this is always, ‘oh it’s so expensive to have so many size ranges,’ but it’s Rebel Wilson. She’s got money.”
The video quickly racked up thousands of views, with many agreeing it was “ridiculous”.
“It’s so disappointing when you see something you love and are so excited and they do not offer in my size,” one commented.
Another said, “Wow. I’m disappointed in her. She knew how this felt.”
“Out of all the people I thought she would have bigger sizes since she was bigger than a XL back in the day so disappointed in her,” another raged.
