Rebel Wilson is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most successful and revered comedy talents.

But the famous comedian, 43, may have gone too far while hosting the 2024 AACTA Awards on the Gold Coast on Saturday.

According news.com.auWilson cracked a joke about cancer that went down like a guided balloon.

‘Why is Australia so good at making horror? Is it because everyone had that aunt who had half her nose cut off due to skin cancer? asked Rebel, who seemed hesitant to go through with the whole joke.

The prank was met with laughter and awkward groans from the audience, which included Margot Robbie, Cate Blanchett, Sophie Wilder, Elsa Pataky and Simon Baker.
