Rebel Wilson is seemingly unfussed after having sparked a massive "thigh gap" storm as she waded out of the ocean in an unzipped swimsuit. The 41-year-old Aussie, still in the news for shedding 70+ pounds, made headlines ahead of the weekend for her Instagram action - a video shared to the blonde's feed showed her sizzling and going Baywatch style as she exited lapping waters while in Fiji.

The result was a fan comment sparking a body image debate. See it below.

Scroll for the footage. Rebel, who made 2020 her "year of health" and continued the spirit into 2021, had been filmed going sporty bombshell while in a bright orange swimsuit with a black zip closure. The Pitch Perfect star walked towards the camera while flaunting her weight loss, with a high ponytail and shades completing the sizzling swimwear look.

While "Babewatch" came in with a fire emoji as fans gushed over the Olly partner, the response wasn't universally positive. See the drama below.

'Thigh Gap' Not Well Received

Kicking things off was a user writing: "Thigh gap," with a heart emoji.

"Thigh gap is unnatural, sorry nyt sorry," one user replied. Another, meanwhile, added: "Agreed. And look at the way people idolize it. This is why women struggle. Thigh gaps can be unattainable for lots of people but they're shoved in our face as a beauty standard and bam...EDs and insecurities."

"It's kinda sad how women behave this way. Only women can create a thing about thigh gap and be envious about it," a third said. More after the video.

Ignoring The Storm

Rebel does not appear to have responded to the drama, but she's not staying quiet, either. The star has since returned all smiles while on a boat and rocking a tropical island look, writing:

"Thanks to my talented team who turned on the shipwrecked-glam look all week in Fiji. We’re all Cali Dreamers! ❤️😊❤️ Styling @elizabethstewart1 @styledbyjennyr Hair @hairbyjohnd Make Up @melhweaver Agenting @brookesjung And all the rest 😜 @samrken @annachi.wilson ❤️🏝❤️ (arriving soon 🇫🇯 )."

Wilson has also been celebrating becoming Tourism Fiji's latest ambassador.

Still A Hot Girl Summer

Rebel also returned for another peek at her orange swimsuit, this time lounging around a gazebo while on shores and with a shirtless male jokingly fanning her. Kidding about the Kardashian-style perks, Rebel told her followers:

"Sammy and I working so hard on our top secret shoot 😜🇫🇯 ps I think I’m now officially starting ‘Hot Girl Summer Southern Hemisphere’, join me xoxo."

Rebel dropped the weight via mindful eating and old-fashioned outdoor exercise, crediting the latter over high-impact cardio. See her Instagram for more updates.
