When asked about the heat she got from a storyline involving Jane Krakowski's character on the freshman comedy series, the Sisters star advised to "steer clear of the Internet" completely!
Speaking to Net-a-Porter, she said:
"We did an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt episode and the Internet was in a whirlwind, calling it ‘racist,' but my new goal is not to explain jokes. I feel like we put so much effort into writing and crafting everything, they need to speak for themselves."
The Saturday Night Live alum explained that the ever growing population of outrage culture wants apologies for jokes they might not necessarily take the time to understand, adding:
"There's a real culture of demanding apologies, and I'm opting out of that."
The storyline in question followed Krakowski's character Jacqueline Vorhees, a Manhattan socialite mother who rejected her Native American heritage.
Kimmy Schmidt also got heat for the depiction of Tituss Burgess' character, who was said to have been too much of a gay stereotype.
But Fey isn't interested in apologizing to an outrage culture of people who don't get her jokes!
