In a lengthy Twitter thread on Saturday, Rebel Wilson detailed her own experiences with sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

Wilson recalled two separate incidents in her tweets. The first involves a male star in a “position of power,” who Wilson said asked her to enter a room with him, then repeatedly requested that she “stick [her] finger up his ass” while his friends filmed on their phones. Wilson also said that after her agent filed a complaint, she was threatened by the male star’s representatives.

Additionally, Wilson said that early in her career, a director invited her to his hotel room for what she thought was a professional discussion about comedy.

“Nothing physical happened because the guy’s wife called and started abusing him over the phone for sleeping with actresses … luckily she was yelling so loud that I could hear her and I bolted out of there immediately,” she wrote.

Wilson also asserted that she’ll no longer be a “polite” bystander to harassment when she sees it. “I will no longer be POLITE,” she tweeted. “Interpret that as you will.”
