Amy had previously said she was left “excited and injured” when Will punched Chris Rock in the face at the Oscars.
In case you somehow missed it, this year’s Oscars were somewhat overshadowed when Will Smith took the stage and punched Chris Rock in the face.
During a ceremony last month, the actor was offended when Chris joked that his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, was bald. “Jada, I love you. GI Jane 2I can’t wait to see it, ”the comic said.
Initially, Will laughed at the joke, and Jada, who was diagnosed with alopecia in 2018, was left with a stony face and rolled her eyes. The next thing the audience saw was Will, who stormed the stage and hit Chris.
Chris was visibly stunned after he was hit, and told the audience, “Wow. Wow. Will Smith just knocked the shit out of me. ” Returning to his seat, Will shouted, “Don’t say my wife’s name.”
Chris, who was reportedly unaware of Jada’s diagnosis of alopecia at the time, awkwardly replied, “Wow, dude, it was G. I. Jane a joke ». But Will just repeated, “Don’t say my wife’s name.”
The ceremony was led by Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes, and in the evening Amy joked about what happened when she returned to the stage.
A few minutes after the incident happened, Amy jokingly said, “I was getting out of this Spider-Man costume, did I miss anything? It’s like a different atmosphere here … “
Although she brushed it off at the time, Amy later said she was “launched and injured” by violence in a remote Instagram post.
“I think we can all agree that the best way to unpack what happened is to broadcast my series @lifeandbethhulu and see me on tour this fall,” the publication began. “But for real. injured “.
“I love my friend @chrisrock and believe he has handled it as a professional. He stayed there and gave the Oscar to his friend @questlove, and it was all so disturbing, ”Amy continued. “Anyway so much pain in @willsmith that I’m still shocked, stunned and sad. I’m proud of myself and my colleagues. But yes. I’m waiting for this nauseous feeling to go away from what we’ve all witnessed.”
But last weekend Amy humiliated the incident when she performed her first comedy program since the Oscars at the Mirage Theater in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Here she called Will “Ali”, referring to the 2001 film, where he played boxer Mohammed Ali, and then told a controversial joke that she was allegedly not allowed to make at the Oscars.
“I felt myself, and suddenly Ali got up,” Amy told the crowd. “And it was just a damn bummer. All I can say is it was very sad and I think it says so much about toxic masculinity ”.
“It was really sad, but I think the best way to comfort myself would be to tell jokes about the Oscars that I wasn’t allowed to talk about on TV,” she added.
“I want to start these jokes about Oscar by saying that my lawyer said not to say them. Don’t tell anyone and don’t be mad at me, ”Amy said before sharing some of the lines she wanted to make about Joe Rogan and James Frank.
However, the “insensitive” joke about the fatal shooting, which involved Alec Baldwin on the set Rust last year was perhaps the most shocking and provoked an unpleasant reaction since its inception.
Speaking to fans of her original Oscar monologue, Amy said: “Don’t look up is this the title of the movie? Rather, do not look down on the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s gun. She then added: “I was not allowed to say anything [at the Oscars]but you can just come up and [slap] someone.
Cinematographer Galina Hutchins was tragically killed on October 21 while Alec was rehearsing a frame for an indie film in which he raised his gun. Alec was allegedly told that the gun was safe to use when he was handed the props, and he claims he did not pull the trigger.
In an interview with ABC News in December, Alec said that at Galina’s direction he pulled the hammer of the pistol back as far as he could without raising it. However, when he released the hammer, the gun fired.
“I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger on them. Never. Never, ”Alec said at the time. “I had such training. You don’t point a gun at anyone or pull the trigger. “
So it was clear that people perceived Amy’s nasty joke and how she seemed to compare Galina’s tragic death to the fact that Will hit Chris.
Someone wrote on Twitter: “Amy Schumer really looked at the situation involving Will Smith and Chris Rock and thought, ‘How can I not only do this about myself, but also find a way to tell an incredibly tasteless and insensitive joke that makes me look.’ like a callous monster? ”
“@Amyschumer, what really? You CANNOT compare such a joke (and let’s be honest, it’s not funny to joke about someone being killed with a gun) to someone slapping someone else on stage, “wrote another.
“Wait, I’m sorry … Amy Schumer wanted to joke about someone’s real death (?!?!?!?!), But talked about how she was caused and slapped by a slap ?! How do you think Galina Hutchins’ family feels when they hear this ?! ” – Someone else answered.
And Amy’s reaction to the slap in the past was something that many others remembered in response to Alec’s joke, and one man repeated, “Amy Schumer wanted to joke about someone’s actual death, but the slap caused and traumatized her? Besides, she is so deprived of attention, because why should she tell us that? ”
“Imagine you are a rich white woman and you are“ caused ”by a man who beats another man by somehow doing it about you and then you get angry that you can’t joke about another woman’s death. @amyschumer bravely made herself a victim, ”someone else wrote.
In February, Galina’s family filed a lawsuit against Alec, the film’s production companies and others involved in the set, claiming that her death was the result of the film’s creators ignoring security concerns to cut corners and save money.
“What happened after this tragedy is that everyone is pointing the finger at someone else. We want to figure it out,” Randy McGean, one of the lawyers representing the Hutchins family, told BuzzFeed News at the time. “Is it true that there are about a dozen people who, if they had done their job properly, this would not have happened.”
