Rebel Wilson doubles down on Sacha Baron Cohen's “The Hole.”


Rebel Wilson did not mince words.

On Tuesday, the “Pitch Perfect” star — once again — called Sacha Baron Cohen an “a**hole” for allegedly threatening her over the release of her upcoming memoir, “Rebel Rising.”

“Thank you so much to everyone who has sent wonderful memories of support over the past few days and to those who have shared their stories of this hole with me!” she wrote via her Instagram Story.

“Don't worry, I won't be bullied or threatened by that guy!” The actress added. “And I'm working hard behind the scenes to make sure my book comes out.”

Despite her now public falling out with the 'Borat' star, the 44-year-old actress assured fans that he was only briefly mentioned in the book.

“Note, my book is not about this guy – this is one chapter!”

However, it's not clear exactly what she wrote about Cohen, who she worked with on the 2016 comedy “The Brothers Grimsby.”

Wilson's post came after the 52-year-old strongly denied the actress' claim that he was trying to stop her book from hitting shelves.

“While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these patently false allegations are directly contradicted by extensive, detailed evidence, including contemporary documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during, and after the production of Grimsby,” Cohen told Page Six on Monday.

In the clip, the actress joked that she had implemented a “no hole policy” after working with a then-unnamed Hollywood star.

Although she initially kept Cohen's identity a secret, the “Senior Year” star named him as the celebrity in question after he allegedly “hired a PR manager and crisis lawyers” to “stop press appearances” about her book.

“I wrote about a loophole in my book. “Now, she said Pit is trying to threaten me,” she claimed via her Instagram Story over the weekend.

The 'a-hole' I talk about in one chapter of my book is: Sacha Baron Cohen,” she admitted.

Wilson told her followers that she decided to take the issue online to prove that she “won't be bullied or silenced by expensive lawyers or PR crisis managers.”

“Rebel Rising” is currently scheduled to hit bookstores on April 2.
