amy schumer always comes off so pretentious and annoying to me.
she has been going hard over will smith and the slap.
as you know,
she was hosting the oscars when that went down.
according to her,
she has been ( x traumatized by the whole ordeal ).
everyone is saying comedians should be able to make jokes,
but amy had a joke about alex baldwin that she couldn’t say…
Amy Schumer reveals one Oscars joke she wasn’t allowed to say — “Don’t Look Up is the name of a movie? More like don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun”
“I wasn’t allowed to say any of that, but you can just come up & [slap] someone”

Schumer then ran down some of the jokes that proved too controversial for the Oscars telecast, including bits about Joe Rogan and James Franco. One joke found Schumer addressing Alec Baldwin and the fatal shooting on the set of “Rust.” Schumer told the crowd ahead of the jokes, “I want to preface these Oscar jokes by saying that my lawyer said not to say these. Don’t tell anybody and don’t get mad at me.”
“’Don’t Look Up’ is the name of a movie? More like don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun,” Schumer said. “I wasn’t allowed to say any of that [at the Oscars], but you can just come up and [slap] someone.”
i always thought jokes at these award shows were not pre-approved.
i thought comedians came up with them on the spot tbh.
that being fonted…
She was traumatized about a slap,
but was gonna make a joke about another incident that traumatized a family?
An incident that led to the death of someone btw.
who had ( x something to add about will smith ),
probably wouldn’t have reacted to her joke either.
he wouldn’t be making ig posts clappin’ back.
he would have shut tf up and minded his business.
white folks don’t really care when other white folks do dumb shit.
if you feel will smith was right or wrong then that is fine.
what isn’t fine is allowing white celebs to interject with their nonsense.
they are coming with privilege and a victim act to destroy someone.
i’ve noticed it’s theproblematic white celebs that are crying about it.
the other white celebs are smart enough to move forward.
mel gibson’s publicist shut that down ASAP:
others should follow suit.
