Amy Schumer has shared her savage Alec Baldwin joke which was banned from the Oscars

The comedian opened up to Variety magazine about the comments her ‘lawyers said not to say’ when hosting the Academy Awards in March.

She told the publication: “I want to preface these Oscar jokes by saying that my lawyer said not to say these.

“Don’t tell anybody and don’t get mad at me.”

Schumer went on to tell her Rust joke, which apparently went: “Don’t Look Up is the name of a movie? More like don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun.”

She added: “I wasn’t allowed to say any of that [at the Oscars], but you can just come up and [slap] someone.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the mum-of-one discussed the Oscars incident involving Will Smith and Chris Rock.

Schumer told the publication: “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.”

At the time of the Academy Awards, Schumer faced a backlash for her ‘ill-timed’ joke about the King Richard star.

Just moments after his altercation with the comedian, she appeared on stage and said: “I’ve been getting out of that Spider-Man costume. Did I miss anything?

“There’s like, a different vibe in here.”

After watching the show, people took to Twitter and told the star it was ‘too soon’.

One viewer commented: “I can’t believe Amy Schumer saw everything that just happened and thought ‘And for my next joke, I’m going to make fun of another man’s wife’.” 

Another added: “Y’all mad at Will when the real enemy is AMY SCHUMER!”
