When it comes to talking about some issues or events that fall under the banner of show business, Amy Schumer is treading a fine line that many comedians in the present atmosphere are weary about.

Alec Baldwin’s tragic “Rust” incident at the 94th Academy Awards was the subject of an Instagram post by the 40-year-old “Life & Beth” star.

“I also was never going to say the Alec Baldwin joke at the Oscar’s [sic]. But I am saying anything I want at my live shows,”Schumer took to Instagram on Tuesday to deny a rumor that she and Chris Fischer, her husband, were relocating to the West Coast after purchasing a USD 12.5 million mansion in Montecito, California.

Her 2nd April comedy show at the Mirage Theater in Las Vegas, according to Vanity Fair, saw her repeat the joke.

“It was just a f—ing bummer. All I can say is that it was really sad, and I think it says so much about toxic masculinity,” she told the audience. “It was really upsetting, but I think the best way to comfort ourselves would be for me to say the Oscar jokes that I wasn’t allowed to say on TV.”

“I want to preface these Oscar jokes by saying that my lawyer said not to say these,” she pressed during the show. “Don’t tell anybody and don’t get mad at me. ‘Don’t Look Up’ is the name of a movie? More like don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun. I wasn’t allowed to say any of that, but you can just come up and [slap] someone.”

Will Smith’s viral slapping of Chris Rock overshadowed Schumer’s Oscars co-hosting with actress Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes, which Schumer subsequently claimed left her traumatized.

After Smith, 53, smacked Rock on stage at the Grammys on March 27, Amy Schumer commented on Instagram, “Still triggered and traumatized.” The post has now been deleted.

She added, “I love my friend @chrisrock 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.”
