Rebel Wilson has accused the Kardashian camp of embarking on a smear campaign after the negative comments she made about the family made headlines last week.
The Pitch Perfect star, 35, revealed on Australian radio station KIIS FM on Nov. 4, that she had been asked to present an award at this year’s MTV VMAs alongside Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner, but refused because what the Kardashians “stand for is totally against what I stand for,” she said.
The straight-talking Aussie also found the family’s rise to fame somewhat distasteful. “I’m all about personality and working hard to get to where I am,” Wilson explained. “How Kim Kardashian got famous from the sex tape and I just went to acting school and worked really hard…” she mused.
Kardashian fans were not pleased with her comments, and even Oprah Winfrey leapt to the Kardashians’ defense, proclaiming them to be an insanely hardworking gang.
But despite sending the Kardashian-Jenners a bunch of flowers to smooth things over, Wilson feels she’s been victimized by the family’s media machine and blasted out her feelings on Twitter on Wednesday, Nov. 12.
“I’d be very happy to debate the Kardashians anywhere / anytime / any topic,” the comic actress wrote. “Or maybe their publicist can just stop the smear campaign against me because I made one prompted comment about them on Australian radio?” she added.

“In any event, I’m MORE than over this little thing and wish the K clan well X,” Wilson added. “Even sent them flowers.”
