Rebel Wilson may be smiling ear after coming out, but it appears the actress may not have shared her journey on her own terms entirely.
In an opinion piece published in the Sydney Morning Herald, private columnist Andrew Hornery wrote
that the Australian newspaper sought comment from the Pitch Perfect actress about her relationship with girlfriend Ramona Agruma before she revealed their romance publicly, in a June 9 Instagram post.
" Hornery wrote on June 10,"giving her two days to comment on her new relationship with another woman, LA leisure wear designer Ramona Agruma, before publishing a single word."
He continued, "Big mistake. Wilson opted to gazump the story, posting about her new ‘Disney Princess' on Instagram early Friday morning."
Hornery continued, "Considering how bitterly Wilson had complained about poor journalism standards when she successfully sued Woman's Day for defamation, her choice to ignore our discreet, genuine and honest queries was, in our view, underwhelming."
Later on, Hornery insinuated that the article outing Wilson would not have been such a big deal given that "sexual orientation is no longer something to be hidden, even in Hollywood.
Social media quickly exploded with users slamming the journalist and the newspaper.
