blank

Amy Schumer has clarified that her Oscar dig at Kirsten Dunst was staged with the actor.

During Sunday night’s (March 28) ceremony, Schumer — who hosted alongside Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall — quipped about Dunst being a “seat filler” at the event.

Schumer has since revealed that the Bring it on Star was “in” on the joke after backlash over her comment, which many believed was an unscripted joke at Dunst’s expense.

Addressing the criticism on Monday (March 28), she wrote on Instagram: “Hey, I appreciate the love for Kirsten Dunst. I love you to! That was a choreographed part that she was involved with.”

the train wreck Star concluded: “Wouldn’t disrespect that queen like that.”

During the ceremony, Schumer chose Dunst as an example of a placeholder, a viewer standing in for a celebrity when they have to leave their seat so that they don’t appear blank on TV.

Schumer grabbed Dunst’s hand and pulled her off her seat and said, “OK, here’s a seat filler. Honey, do you want to go to the bathroom?” before bending over to tell Dunst to tell Jesse Plemons (whom Dunst is married to), “Jesse, I loved you power of the dog.”

Plemons then replied, “You know that was my wife, Amy,” to which Schumer replied, “You’re married to that seat filler?”

Dunst and Plemons were both nominated for their supporting roles in Jane Campions The power of the dog. However, both actors lost in their categories — to Ariana DeBose and Troy Kotsur, respectively.

Will Smith has also issued an official statement apologizing for his actions during the ceremony on Sunday evening (March 27).
