Rebel Wilson Says Kardashians Are Conducting a “Smear Campaign” Against Her Following Negative Comments
Somehow, there’s a feud blazing in Hollywood right now between the hilarious Pitch Perfect star, Rebel Wilson, and the world’s most famous family, the Kardashians. But how the heck did this all start? Wit the MTV VMA’s.
Earlier this year, the Australian comedian and actress was approached to present an award at the VMA’s with Kendall and Kylie Jenner, but Wilson was NOT down with the idea. In an interview with Australian radio station KIIS FM, she dished that she refused the offer because the Kardashians are “totally against what I stand for.”
Rebel has never been one to mince words or play cutesy, and she continued “I’m all about personality and working hard to get to where I am. How Kim Kardashian got famous from the sex tape and I just went to acting school and worked really hard…”
OUCH! That is a definite burn on Wilson’s part, but it’s not like she really said anything that people all over the world aren’t already thinking. However, many were quick to jump to the Kardashians’ defense – including their many fans on social media – and even Oprah?
Winfrey, the media mogul, defended the Kardashian/Jenner girls, saying that Wilson’s comments were unfounded and that the family is extremely hardworking.
While Wilson did attempt to make nice and sent the Kardashians some flowers as a peace offering, she didn’t budge in her opinions of the family and took to Twitter to let the world know exactly what she thought of the Kardashians on November 12.
“I’d be very happy to debate the Kardashians anywhere / anytime / any topic,” she said. “Or maybe their publicist can just stop the smear campaign against me because I made one prompted comment about them on Australian radio?”

Rebel finished off her little rant shortly and sweetly – “In any event, I’m MORE than over this little thing and wish the K clan well X. Even sent them flowers.”
