Amy Schumer has revealed the joke she “wasn’t allowed to make” during the Oscars, specifically referring to Alec Baldwin’s rust Shoot-out.
During a stand-up comedy show in Las Vegas on Saturday, April 2, the Oscars co-host admitted there were a handful of topics and jokes she wasn’t allowed to make.
These included bits about Joe Rogan, sexual allegations against James Franco and Balwin’s alleged fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on set.
Accordingly vanity fair, Schumer launched into a series of controversial jokes. “I want to preface these Oscar jokes by saying that my attorney told me not to say those. Don’t tell anyone and don’t be mad at me,” she said.
“Don’t look up is the name of a movie?” she said. “Better not look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun.”
The comedian then commented further, “I wasn’t allowed to say any of that [at the Oscars]but you can just come and [slap] someone.”
While Schumer wasn’t allowed to make jokes about Baldwin, a revised version of the original joke made it into her Oscars monologue: “Don’t look up is nominated. I guess Academy members don’t look for reviews!”
The Independent has reached out to the Academy for comment.
