The outrageous joke that Rebel Wilson told while hosting the prestigious 2024 AACTA Awards – which was CUT from broadcast by Channel 10 after shocking the A-list audience

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

But the famed funnywoman, 43, may have pushed the envelope a tad too far while hosting the 2024 AACTA Awards on the Gold Coast on Saturday.

According to news.com.au, Wilson shot off a quip about cancer that went down like a led balloon. 

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

The joke was met with awkward laughs and groans by the audience, which included Margot Robbie, Cate Blanchett, Sophie Wilder, Elsa Pataky, and Simon Baker.
