Amy Schumer has had sufficient of her critics after the backlash to a current joke.
The comic on Friday addressed controversy swirling round a social media put up she made earlier within the week about Nicole Kidman on the U.S. Open. The “Trainwreck” star had jokingly steered that the actor wasn’t human due to her easy pose in a picture from the occasion, solely to delete Monday’s put up hours later amid heavy criticism — however she is now doubling down.
“I hope everyone is okay and takes a deep breath including all of the think pieces written on this,” Schumer wrote in her new message. “You guys good? To all of the people who commented on me. I’m so sorry I’m not prettier. Please forgive me. I apologize. It wasn’t even a slow news day.”
She then pointed to what she sees as extra essential points within the information currently, with obvious references to the rising ties between Russian and North Korean leaders, in addition to a jail sentence handed right down to “That ’70s Show” star Danny Masterson after he was discovered responsible of raping two ladies.
“North Korea and Russia are getting too close for comfort. There are deadly storms sweeping our world and a man was convicted of rape,” she mentioned. “But what got your goat was me saying that Nicole kidmans pose was not human like. Breathe y’all.”
The photograph of Kidman had confirmed her staring intently as tennis stars Coco Gauff and Aryna Sabalenka competed at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York, together with her hand below her chin.
“This how human sit,” Schumer wrote in a caption for the picture.
Though it’s unclear if Kidman ever saw the post, many accused Schumer of cyberbullying the actor and defended Kidman as a “queen.”
“This post seems beneath you,” one social media person wrote.
Schumer, who has beforehand made headlines for jesting about racy or delicate topics, clarified that her caption wasn’t supposed as a diss.
“Okay so the joke I was making was the way she was posed didn’t seem like how a human sits,” the comic wrote on Friday. “I was not making fun of how she looks. Nicole Kidman is beautiful and one of the most incredible actors of all time.”
The comedian mentioned she would finally forgive her followers, even when they proceed to chastise her.
“To the people who write hateful things below I forgive you as a mother, a woman and most importantly as someone who also likes hot goss,” Schumer concluded. “Have a good weekend.”
