Newspaper denies outing actress Rebel Wilson

As it is confronted with outcry about its reporting on Rebel Wilson’s new relationship, an Australian newspaper denied that Rebel Wilson was in the news.

The Bridesmaids star posted a photo on Instagram of herself and Ramona Agruma, saying that she thought she was looking for a Disney Prince, but perhaps what I really needed was a Disney Princess #loveislove.

Andrew Hornery, a columnist for the Sydney Morning Herald, described Wilson’s alleged “ignorance” of their requests to comment on the relationship in a story that was published by the Herald. Instead, she revealed her own news.

Wilson has not yet addressed the newspaper article directly. However, she tweeted “It was very difficult but trying to manage it with grace” on Sunday as a reference to the row.

Bevan Shields, editor of Sydney Morning Herald, has denied that she was “outed”.

He stated that, “Like all mastheads do every single day, we simply asked questions. As standard practice, there was a deadline for a reply. Wilson’s response would have informed the Herald’s decision as to what publication to publish. I had not made any decision.

He denied that Wilson was forced to leave the paper. This is in response to two columns written by Mr Hornery, where he tried to explain why the paper “acted with an abundance of caution” and “with respect”.

It also included a complaint about Wilson’s decision to “gazump” them and share her own news.

He wrote: “Considering Wilson’s bitter complaints about poor journalism standards in her successful suit against Woman’s Day for libel, we found it underwhelming that she chose to ignore our discrete, honest, and sincere questions.

Wilson was happy to indulge her lust when she had a handsome boyfriend.

Stonewall, a LGBT rights charity, criticized the publication saying: “Coming out can be a deeply personal decision.

“Whether, when, and how to get out should be determined by each individual on their terms.

“It’s not okay to ‘out LGBTQ+ people’ or to put pressure on them to come out.

Media outlets need to be careful not sensationalize LGBTQ+ lives or relationships.”
