I’ve just read this @smh piece 3 times to make sure that I wasn’t misreading. The publication messaged Rebel Wilson saying they would out her in 2 days – and is now complaining that she chose to announce her relationship with a woman herself. Quite astonishing. pic.twitter.com/qiPZkYFmka

Your paper has no god-given right to know anything about the private life of anyone
I don’t claim to speak on behalf of Rebel Wilson
But for LGBTQIA+ people the consequences of what is nothing more than a hissy fit over who gets to print gossip can have devastating effects https://t.co/mzrpHTsoU5

Other fans are happy that Wilson came out during Pride Month, a time when those part of the LGBTQIA+ community feel comfortable expressing themselves and loving who they love.
Pride month is like gay version of Masked Singer. You never know which celebrity is gonna reveal themselves but I wasn’t gonna guess Rebel Wilson
