Class is in session and it's being taught my Mo'Nique. Go inside to see how Mo had to school actress Rebel Wilson about plus-size women who have starred in rom-coms before she even stepped foot in the industry....

Actress Rebel Wilson set Twitter off when she made claims that she's the first plus-sized woman to ever star in a romantic comedy. Rebel appeared on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" to promote her new movie Isn't It Romantic and she gave herself credit as the first plus-sized actress to lead a romantic comedy.

“I’m proud to be the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy,” she told Ellen.

The quote made its way online and one Twitter user (a white woman) called Rebel out, noting Queen Latifah and Mo'Nique have both lead romantic comedies in the past.

And she's right. Queen Latifah has lead rom coms Just Wright and Last Holiday. Mo'Nique has lead Phat Girlz and Ricki Lake played lead in the TV rom com movie, Babycakes.

Yet, Rebel still believes there's a "grey area" when it comes to plus-sized actresses leading rom coms. She responded:

That's when the Oscar winner had to step in and set the record straight:

Facts.

Rebel responded saying it was never her intention to erase history and that she has love for all plus-sized women. She still never acknowledged that she was facutally incorrect:

Meanwhile, black women have been trying to tell Rebel how her statement was incorrect, but she decided to BLOCK them instead:
