Will Smith’s slap controversy is currently trending on social media. The rapper has been widely chastised for his actions. Amy Schumer, the host of the Oscars 2022, recently cleared the air after fans claimed she insulted Kirsten Dunst by calling her a “seat filler.” Amy appears to have clarified her joke because jokes have become a little risky lately.
Amy Schumer has responded to the backlash she received after making a joke about Kirsten Dunst being a “seat filler” at the Oscars 2022 ceremony. Amy wrote in an Instagram Story on March 28: “Hey I appreciate the love for Kirsten Dunst. I love her too! That was a choreographed bit she was in on. Wouldn’t disrespect that queen like that.”
Amy started her monologue by explaining to the audience the concept of seat fillers, or people who are designated to fill seats when celebrities are elsewhere during the ceremony. Amy then proceeded to Kirsten and her husband, co-star Jesse Plemons’ table. “Here’s a seat filler,” she said, referencing Kirsten. “Honey, do you want to go to the bathroom?”
Amy then pulled Kirsten by the arm and stole her seat to talk with Jesse. “Jesse, I loved you in Power of the Dog,” Amy said. To which Jesse replied, “You know, that was my wife, Amy.” Keeping the flow rolling, Amy then quipped, “You’re married to that seat filler?”
Jesse and Kirsten were both in attendance as nominees for their roles in The Power of the Dog. Jesse was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, and Kirsten was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
Even though the pair didn’t win any trophies, Amy did provide them with a custom-made joke. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
