Amy Schumer feels she’s become the butt of jokes after sharing her honest reaction to Will Smith and Chris Rock‘s altercation.
During an April 13 appearance on The Howard Stern Show, the Oscars host, 40, called the in-show moment “so upsetting,” noting that “people made fun of me for saying that was traumatizing. But I don’t think it was traumatizing for me. I think it was traumatizing for all of us.”
Amy shared that the alteration was hard for her because she is really good friends with Chris and Questlove—who went on stage to accept the award for Best Documentary Feature moments after the slap occurred.
“Chris Rock is my good friend, like one of my best friends and Questlove is also one of my best friends,” she continued. “And so, to see that happen, to see your friend get hit… and then and also Will Smith—who I’ve loved and we’ve all loved forever—like I’ve I don’t remember a time I didn’t think, ‘I love that guy. I haven’t been around much violence. I didn’t grow up with it in the home or anything. It was shocking. And it was a bummer.”
