Amy Schumer had previously faced scrutiny at the Oscars
Celebrities have once again found themselves in the spotlight with controversial news making rounds. Johnny Depp recently won a lawsuit against Amber Heard and has spoken about his plans for the money he received. In another unfortunate event, John Romita Sr., the co-creator of Wolverine and a renowned Marvel cartoonist, has passed away.
Moving on to Amy Schumer, known for her humorous take on current affairs, she has sparked intense controversy surrounding her comments in Netflix’s ‘Amy Schumer: Emergency Contact’. During the show, she made jokes about Alec Baldwin, his wife Hilaria, and the tragic incident on the set of ‘Rust’ resulting in the death of Halyna Hutchins.
Amy Schumer had previously faced scrutiny at the Oscars, where part of her speech was censored by the Hollywood Academy. She later revealed the joke that was cut, which targeted Alec Baldwin and the incident on the film set.
Schumer’s controversial comments continued in her Netflix show, this time targeting Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Baldwin’s connection to Spain. She stated that Hilaria, originally from Boston and whose real name is Hillary Thomas, has misrepresented her background. Schumer also made references to the couple’s children, sarcastically mentioning their names as if they were extremely Spanish.
The comedian’s intervention reached its most contentious point when she mentioned Alec Baldwin and the tragic event on the set of ‘Rust’, where Halyna Hutchins lost her life due to the accidental firing of Baldwin’s gun. Schumer implied that Hilaria had been pretending to be Spanish, and she criticized both of them for their perceived lack of concern.
These remarks have once again ignited a firestorm of controversy around Amy Schumer, demonstrating her penchant for pushing boundaries and generating heated discussions.
