As the fallout over Will Smith smacking fire from Chris Rock during the live broadcast of the Oscars continues, white folks have now entered the arena of giving their unseasoned and unsolicited opinions on the matter.
On Wednesday, Amy Schumer cried white tears on Instagram. She even centered her new series on Hulu while rambling about being “triggered and traumatized” to her fans on the social media platform.
In a now-deleted post, she wrote, “I think we can all agree that the best way to unpack what happened is to stream my series @lifeandbethhulu and see me on tour this fall,” she initially joked.
“But for real. Still triggered and traumatized. 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. So much pain in @willsmith anyway. I’m still in shock and stunned, and sad. I’m proud of myself and my cohosts. But yeah. Waiting for this sickening feeling to go away from what we all witnessed.”
Schumer, who presented the Oscars with Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes, apparently was not prepared for the smoke she received after the commentary went viral. The 40-year-old quickly realized that she should have probably minded her business.
Black Twitter gathered her quickly.
Amy Schumer is “triggered and traumatized” by that slap but I wonder how she feels after asking her grandparents what they were up to in the 1940s/50s?? pic.twitter.com/IpSBCZsNPD

The intersection of white lashings and capitalism is wild. Amy Schumer is so triggered by the Oscars that she had time to pump her new tv special. Also, in reality the primary people making money off this traumatic event are white. The academy, white writers, new outlets, etc. pic.twitter.com/xjsXUHRKB5

How tf is @amyschumer triggered by Will Smith when white women in this country were just as diabolically EVIL towards Black ppl- ESPECIALLY BLACK WOMEN? As usual some dough-bodied white woman comes in centering her feelings over Black women. Fuck off pic.twitter.com/HfckTRxGgh

A Black man slaps another Black man and white women still have to be the victim 🤦 Amy Schumer said she was “triggered” by the Oscars. Girl Bye! I am triggered by 400 years of slavery and the systemic racism I face everyday.#AmySchumer #Oscars pic.twitter.com/t3GBA3tRpP

One Twitter user quickly reminded the public of Schumer lying on Black and other men of color catcalling her in the streets. She even added AAVE as if it validated her ludicrous claim.
Amy Schumer once lied about men of color catcalling *more* than YT men.
This was in light of that 2014 Hollaback video that portrayed Black & Latinx as sole perpetrators of street harassment. So I’m sure she couldn’t wait to speak being “triggered” & “traumatized” by a BM. pic.twitter.com/UHtpXwjOMt

In 2016, Schumer also reportedly outed herself as a rapist.
“I used to sleep with mostly Hispanic guys — but now I prefer consensual,” she reportedly said during her 2013 comedy special Women Who Kill.
Schumer also joked about having a thing for Black men, referencing Spike Lee’s 1990 film Jungle Fever, saying, “I love black and white movies!”
She walked back from her rapey comment with a now-deleted tweet, “I am taking responsibility and hope I haven’t hurt anyone. And I apologize if I did.”
Schumer wasn’t aware of the wrath of Black Twitter. She f**ked around and found out.
