Amy Schumer Reveals BRUTAL Alec Baldwin Joke She 'Wasn’t Allowed' To Make At The Oscars!

Amy Schumer Reveals BRUTAL Alec Baldwin Joke She ‘Wasn’t Allowed’ To Make At The Oscars!

In a parallel universe, we might have been talking about this controversial joke instead of the Will Smith slap all last week!

During Amy Schumer’s first stand-up comedy show following the Oscars at the Mirage Theater in Las Vegas on Saturday night, she revealed a joke about Alec Baldwin that she “wasn’t allowed” to say during the televised event — and it’s awful.

To explain the reasoning for telling a few banned jokes in the first place, the Life & Beth star felt compelled to rehash the unforgettable events of the 94th Academy Awards — as if anyone doesn’t know what happened at this point!

Sharing what it was like for her, as a co-host of the event, to see Will Smith storm the stage and slap Chris Rock midway through the ceremony, she reflected (via The Hollywood Reporter):

“I was kind of feeling myself…and then all of a sudden Ali [referring to Will’s performance as boxer Muhammed Ali in Ali] was making his way up. And it was just a f**king bummer. All I can say is that it was really sad, and I think it says so much about toxic masculinity. It was really upsetting, but I think the best way to comfort ourselves would be for me to say the Oscar jokes that I wasn’t allowed to say on TV.”

The bits included jokes about Joe Rogan and James Franco, but none was more jaw-dropping than a quip about the 30 Rock alum, who has been in the hot seat ever since he fired a prop gun on the set of the western Rust and killed Halyna Hutchins in October. Knowing full well she probably shouldn’t be telling the joke, Amy insisted:

“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.”

Well, it’s a bit naive to think the joke wouldn’t make it to the internet — especially when it’s this out there! According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comedian continued:

Don’t Look Up is the name of a movie? More like don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun.”

Then thinking back on the physical violence of the Oscars, she complained:

“I wasn’t allowed to say any of that [at the Oscars], but you can just come up and [slap] someone.”

Those who watched the full awards show might remember that the 40-year-old did manage to squeeze in a much more PG Don’t Look Up joke, saying:

Don’t Look Up is nominated. I guess the Academy members don’t look up reviews!”

Suuuuuch a different vibe than the Baldwin joke! Can YOU believe Amy tried to get away with that? Why would she admit to this?? Sound OFF with your hot takes (below)!
