‘Sliving’ is a slang term meaning glamorously successful, self-empowered and fulfilled.

Many of her followers flocked to the comments section to criticise the Pitch Perfect star for partying so soon after welcoming the newborn daughter she had ‘longed for’.

‘I sure as heck wouldn’t have left my newborn to go partying the week she was born! Whether I had birthed her myself or not is irrelevant!’ one critic said.

‘She can do whatever she wants, as can any mum, but it does seem a little odd that a week after a baby that she longed for [for] so long arrives and she’s out partying. Even if it was for an hour or so, it still seems a bit strange.’ 

Another asked Wilson to ‘think of the woman’ who gave birth to her baby.

‘Ummm sorry?!? Didn’t you just get given a baby this week. So confused right now. This is the most important time to bond with your baby, not party,’ one comment read.

However, plenty of fans in the comments section jumped to Wilson’s defence, arguing that ‘mothers are allowed to have time to themselves too’.  

‘Are mothers not allowed to let their hair down? Are mothers not allowed to take a break for their own self, their own soul?

‘None of us have any idea what is going on in Rebel’s life so don’t think for one second that you have any right to judge,’ one said.
