Amy Schumer reveals she suffered death threats after Oscars joke | Marca

The 2022 Academy Award ceremony will be forever remembered for the Will Smith slap to host Chris Rock, yet Amy Schumer has had a controversial moment of her own, with a joke she made at the ceremony leading to her receiving death threats.

These threats, deemed so credible to spark the local authorities into contacting the female star, were in response to a joke Schumer made at the expense of Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons.

Schumer pretended to mistake Dunst for a seat-filler, who is a person who is paid to sit in a guest’s chair whilst they visit the bathroom during an awards show, which was perceived to be a slight against Dunst.

“They were so bad that the secret service reached out to me,” Schumer told the Howard Stern show.

“I was like, I think you have the wrong number, it’s Amy… not Will Smith.

“The misogyny is unbelievable.”
