The tweet was shared to over 2 million of Rebel's followers, and received many negative responses. One person even called Elizabeth "an actual witch".

I am fiercely rejecting the allegations that have been made against me regarding the harassment of Rebel Wilson's grandmother. I have never ever harassed anybody, let alone an elderly grandma who is one of the nicest people I've ever spoken to.
I'm just not coping very well with this... I am beyond distraught that this has happened and that Rebel Wilson has made these false allegations... I can't believe she can just say these things on social media. It's a very dark world. Especially since I have no real way to defend myself.

Currently, Rebel's tweet calling Elizabeth Wilson "scum" is still visible on her account. She has also tweeted in defence of her actions and that authorities have been contacted.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Elizabeth Wilson for comment.
