Rebel Wilson shocked and wowed the BAFTAs audience at the annual British awards show back in 2016 and 2020.
But when she returned to host the 2022 BAFTAs on March 13, the love for her humor wasn’t brought back with her.
The Twitterverse noted throughout the night that Wilson, 42, wasn’t a very good host and took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
The Australian actress joked about her dramatic weight loss, quipped about dating Robert Pattinson, James Bond and took shots at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.
But fans weren’t having it.
One person asked, “Can we all agree that Rebel Wilson is just not funny?”
Someone else wondered aloud: “#BAFTA2022 I wish Rebel Wilson would literally just walk on, introduce the next award and walk off. The audience are having to constantly be polite and clap and laugh at her poor jokes. She is so not funny.”
In response to the “Bridesmaids” star’s monologue, they added, “With the amount of terribly offensive things she passed off as jokes- the audience should have refused to clap, or fake laugh. Just let her fall flat.”
During her opening monologue, she acknowledged her “transformation” since hosting in 2020 and said that people have been asking her why she wanted to decrease her size.
“Clearly it was to get the attention of Robert Pattinson,” she quipped. “I didn’t lose weight just to get a guy, I did it to get more acting roles. Now I can play the non-funny love interest in an Adam Sandler film.”
