Taking to Twitter, the Australian actress explained that America really needs to follow Australia's example regarding gun laws.

Her comments come after last week's tragic Louisiana theater shooting, which claimed the lives of two people and injured nine others before the gunman turned the gun on himself.

Wilson continued her train of thought by explaining there has not been a mass shooting in Australia since the country overhauled its gun laws — but her comments have angered a lot of American citizens.

The reaction to Wilson's opinion has been swift and fast, with critics telling her to leave their country, and some even going so far as attacking her weight and intellect.
