Journalist Is “Beyond Distraught” After Rebel Wilson Called Her “Scum” On Twitter
1. On Sunday, Rebel Wilson shared an image of a journalist she claims harassed her grandmother. She labelled the woman in the photograph, Elizabeth Wilson, “total scum.”
She previously shared a picture of another woman, before deleting it after realising she was a different journalist.
2. The tweet was shared to over 2 million of Rebel’s followers, and received many negative responses. One person even called Elizabeth “an actual witch”.
3. In an interview with Mamamia, Elizabeth Wilson claims she called Rebel’s grandmother twice as a freelance journalist but never harassed her:
I am fiercely rejecting the allegations that have been made against me regarding the harassment of Rebel Wilson’s grandmother. I have never ever harassed anybody, let alone an elderly grandma who is one of the nicest people I’ve ever spoken to.
4. Elizabeth, who says she recently re-entered the workforce after a near-death experience last year, also told the website she isn’t coping:
I’m just not coping very well with this… I am beyond distraught that this has happened and that Rebel Wilson has made these false allegations… I can’t believe she can just say these things on social media. It’s a very dark world. Especially since I have no real way to defend myself.
