"I have never been invited to the Oscars because, as you know, they are racists."
Rebel Wilson made largely funny and largely controversial comments on Sunday night at the BAFTA Awards. BAFTA stands for the British Academy Television Awards which were held in the Royal Opera House in London. Wilson went on to pull out a speech dropping jokes about the very controversial Oscars being racist, trying her new "transgendered face", and confess her love for chocolate. She never broke a smile or laugh until towards the end when referencing black actor, Idris Elba saying he started to make her nervous.
“I’m sociologically programmed to want chocolate on Valentine’s Day.”
Though many fans tweeted their approval of the jokes, some others believed it was inappropriate humor. Rebel Wilson is always known for her off the cuff humor so this gave her just the kind of platform to get her word out. Watching the video, it's very obvious that the audience found her jokes completely hilarious despite some online protesters.
Wilson went on to tweet, "Had amazing time @ BAFTA's tonight x props to @stephenfry for hosting brilliantly & to all those diverse members!" Looks like she doesn't have time for the haters as usual.
What are your thoughts on her speech?
