There’s a lot you can say to Amy Schumer without offending her, but calling her “skanky” just because she likes to wear a short skirt is NOT one of them! You HAVE to see her call out Australia’s Kiis 101.1 host for doing just that in this awkward but totally epic interview!
Amy Schumer, 34, definitely knows how to make fun of herself, but even she’s not about to sit around and let someone insult her without retaliating! Things got super awkward for an Australian interviewer when the comedian got offended by him calling her ‘skanky,’ and she totally called told him off!
After being complimented by how great her legs looked in the movie Trainwreck, Amy was totally thankful, and admitted that the film’s costume designer did like to put her in clothes that were just short enough to “make you uncomfortable.” But things took a downward turn when the male interviewer asked, “Do you have the word ‘skanky’ in America?”
Amy was instantly horrified at his insult, and although she kept a pretty cool head about it, he obviously realized she was heated….and just went and made things worse. “That’s the character in the movie, I’m not trying to offend you,” he explained.
But she wasn’t having it — and let him know. “Whatever you’re trying to do, you aren’t,” she piped back. “That’s a rude question.” From there, things just continued to remain awkward, as the hosts tried to clear the air by telling a story about a co-worker who clipped her pubic hair in the office bathroom.
The whole thing was just so painful, you have to watch it above to see for yourself. And at the end, Amy even (half-jokingly) told the female interviewer that she shouldn’t bring her partner along next time. Luckily, he had a pretty good sense of humor about the whole thing. Check it out above!
HollywoodLifers, Do you think the question was inappropriate?
