Australian actress Rebel Wilson certainly knows how to become the center of attention at any event.
The “Pitch Perfect” alum took to the stage at BAFTA Awards on Sunday to introduce the nominees for Best Supporting Actor and stole the entire show with her deadpan speech.
“As you know, they are racists. But the BAFTAs have diverse members,” the 35-year-old comedian began to howls of laughter. “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 face.”
She then blamed her nervousness on Idris Elba and admitted she would be happy to console the four losing nominees.
Some on Twitter loved Wilson’s sassy speech:

Rebel Wilson's speech is bringing down the house #EEBAFTAs— Grazia UK (@GraziaUK) February 14, 2016
Others, however, did not appreciate her poking fun at both transgender issues and #OscarsSoWhite:
Rebel Wilson has now displayed her ignorance publicly at two award shows. It's time we stop giving her a pass, yeah?— Alex Naser-Hall (@anaserhall) February 14, 2016
Who do I blame for Rebel Wilson having any type of success?— LenaStarfishGerhl (@R3INAL3NA) February 14, 2016
Tell me again what sorta "feminist" Rebel Wilson is...I double dog dare you. https://t.co/DO8DJL0zwy— ServingTransRealness (@trans_killjoy) February 14, 2016
I honest to god hate Rebel Wilson's "edgy" humor, especially after that police brutality joke she made at the VMAs.— Zoé S. (@ztsamudzi) February 14, 2016
Rebel Wilson does not represent diversity. #BAFTA— Alicia Garza (@AliciaGarza_) February 15, 2016
This is not the first time the Australian actress has found herself at the center of a controversy.
In 2015, she ruffled many feathers by making a totally unfunny joke about police brutality during the MTV VMAs.
