Amy Schumer has been revealing various aspects of the Oscars recently. Amy recently revealed the Oscar joke she was not allowed to make about Alec Baldwin. Amy has now spoken out about rumors that she stole a joke about Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriends from the Oscars.

Amy Schumer denied stealing a joke about Leonardo DiCaprio from a fan on Twitter, instead crediting Suli McCullough for her climate change-inspired quip at the 2022 Oscars. “OK. Well, I would like to say, I haven’t personally been on Twitter,” the Life & Beth star said while appearing on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live! 

“I’ve had my assistant do it, just so I can remain alive and not kill myself. And also, that joke was written by Suli McCullough. But I thank you guys, always, for making sure that I don’t start thievery.”

While co-hosting the 94th Academy Awards with Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall, Schumer mocked the Don’t Look Up actor, saying, “He has done so much to fight climate change and leave behind a cleaner, greener planet for his girlfriends.” Some keen observers noticed a striking resemblance to a tweet posted by a social media user in December 2021, which stated, “Leonardo DiCaprio is so passionate about climate change because he wants to leave a better [world] for his girlfriends.”

Schumer explained that the topic came up at the perfect time on Watch What Happens Live!, given that she had just completed a lie detector test courtesy of Variety magazine, and they asked her if she had ever stolen a joke. Her denial was proven to be correct. “So, everybody just chill. It’s crazy,” the Trainwreck actress shared, adding, “I’m funny enough, I don’t need to steal sh*t.”

During her interview, Schumer discussed the heated exchange between Will Smith and Chris Rock that evening, as well as her reaction to the King Richard star receiving a standing ovation for his Best Actor Oscar win just minutes after slapping Rock on the stage.

“I was backstage, and I knew I had to go out. I was kind of the only host that was going out solo after that, so it really felt like the Situation Room of comedy. We were all watching the monitor, and then he won, like, everybody, we were just kind of floored. And I was just thinking about, ‘What am I going to do when I go out there?'”

After saying she was “triggered and traumatized” by the ordeal, Schumer received backlash, with some critics suggesting she should skip this one. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
