By now you've seen the set photos, watched the trailer, and heard all the drama about the upcoming romantic comedy "Isn't It Romantic," starring Rebel Wilson.

Though there's no argument that plus-size women are not nearly well enough represented in any movies — but romance films in particular — Wilson made a whole lot of people mad when she tried to pass herself off as the first-ever plus-size romantic comedy lead.

After a long few days of silence and blocking people on Twitter, Wilson seems to have learned her lesson about what happens when plus-size women fail to support and uplift one another.

Some context, in case you've been living under a rock: Wilson recently appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," and she said something that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

"I'm kind of proud to be the first-ever plus-size girl to be the star of a romantic comedy."

You can watch the entire interview below, but prepare to cringe a little.

Because, um, hi. You ever seen "The Last Holiday," starring Queen Latifah?

Or "Phat Girlz," with the incomparable Mo'Nique?

Or Shannon Purser's "Sierra Burgess Is A Loser," which LITERALLY JUST CAME OUT?

People were very quick to point out Wilson's factual error, and she was just as quick to defend her erasure of (mostly black) plus-size actresses who paved the way for her.

"Yeah I of course know of these movies but it was questionable as to whether: 1. Technically those actresses were plus size when filming those movies or 2. Technically those films are categorized/billed as a studio rom-com with a sole lead. So there’s a slight grey area," she wrote.

"A slight grey area." OK.

National treasure Mo'Nique chimed in to politely suggest Wilson take a step back and acknowledge the harm she'd caused to other plus-size women — especially plus-size women of color.

But it was too late. Wilson had already been caught blocking multiple other women who tried to communicate her mistake to her directly.

Which is never a good way to publicize your movie.

Or learn from your errors.

Fast-forward to yesterday, when Wilson finally issued an apology on Twitter.

"In a couple of well-intentioned moments, hoping to lift my fellow plus sized women up, I neglected to show the proper respect to those who climbed this mountain before me," she began.

"I now realize what I said was not only wrong but also incredibly hurtful."

"I blocked people on Twitter because I was hurting from the criticism, but those are the people I actually need to hear from more, not less."

As big and embarrassing a snafu as this is, it wouldn't be happening if film executives would start putting plus-size women in the same roles as straight-size women more often.

Because we do exist — in fact, we're the national average. And we want to see ourselves in tacky romance movies just as badly as the next person, OK?
