Rebel Wilson Says She Got In Trouble For 'Sexually Assaulting Harry Styles'

Rebel Wilson appeared on "The Ellen Show" on Friday and missed her mark with a joke about sexual assault. 

The 35-year-old actress recalled the last time she appeared on the daytime talk show, which just happened to be the same day the boys from One Direction stopped by.

"Well as you know, I’m a big One Direction fan and if you freeze frame right there, see? Just right there," Wilson said, pointing to a video where she was on top of 1D singer Harry Styles. "Basically, I got accused of sexually assaulting Harry Styles." 

Wilson said fans were very upset with the "How to be Single" actress for jumping on top of Harry as he (albeit jokingly) motioned for her to get off. 

"Yeah, these little girls, I think they’re about 12. Very, very unhappy with that," Wilson said. "Basically, we’re just two professional entertainers having a good time. And he really enjoyed it and I told him that on Twitter and they just sent me more death threats." 

Wilson recently stirred up controversy when she made a transgender joke at the BAFTA awards last Sunday. 

"I have never been invited to the Oscars because, you know, they are racists," Wilson said. "But the BAFTAs have diverse members. And that's what we all want to see in life, isn't it? Diverse members. One day I hope to return here to win a BAFTA myself. I have already been practicing my transgendered [sic] face."
