Amy Schumer ‘Triggered and Traumatised’ by Will Smith’s Oscar Slap


Amy Schumer says she was ‘triggered and traumatised’ by Will Smith’s actions at the Academy Awards on Sunday evening.

Many celebs have spoken up about the Chris Rock/Will Smith slap including Jim Carrey, Joe Rogan, Zoe Kravitz and now Amy Schumer.

The now infamous slap took place at the Oscars awards ceremony. Rock made an insensitive remark about Jada Pinkett Smith, comparing her to G.I Jane – Jada has been open about her struggles with alopecia and didn’t appreciate being used as the punchline.

Schumer has taken to Instagram to reveal her thoughts:

In a lengthy caption, she says:

‘I love my friend [Chris Rock] and believe he handled it like a pro. Stayed up there and gave an Oscar to his friend [Questlove] and the whole thing was so disturbing.’

“So much pain in [Will Smith], anyway I’m still in shock and stunned and sad.’

“I’m proud of myself and my co-hosts. But yeah. Waiting for this sickening feeling to go away from what we all witnessed.”

The actress also posted:

‘I think we are all gonna be processing tonight for a while.’

Chris Rock has refused to press charges after he was assaulted on stage in front of millions. Smith has since apologized to the Academy and Rock himself, but has potentially tarnished a career that he’s spent decades building…
