Amy Schumer thinks Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars was a “f–king bummer” and all about “toxic masculinity.”
During her first appearance since hosting the Oscars, Schumer said she didn’t know what to say about the awards show other than she had no jokes about it.
“I was kind of feeling myself … and then all of a sudden Ali was making his way up,” she said, according to The Hollywood Reporter, referring to Smith’s role in the 2001 film in which he played boxer Muhammad Ali.
“And it was just a f–king bummer,” she said Saturday at Las Vegas’ Mirage Theater as part of the Aces of Comedy series. “All I can say is that it was really sad, and I think it says so much about toxic masculinity.”
Schumer — who has praised Rock for handling the situation “like a pro” — told the crowd that the ordeal was “really upsetting.”
