Amy Schumer scandal

Comedian Amy Schumer, who many of you might remember from the Charlie Sheen Roast on Comedy Central, was on the Howard Stern Radio show and talked about a nude photo shoot she did for Cosmopolitan magazine.

Saucy! We think she is hot, and not just talking naked here. Amy Schumer’s star is on the rise, as she is starring with Steve Carrell (The Office) in the film “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” due out in 2012. Amy is also currently touring making people laugh all over the country,

Outspoken comedian and actor Amy Schumer has moved at least 8 times within NYC in the last eight years—experiencing many a roommate complication, and going to great (and often shady) lengths to secure a good deal on an apartment.

Known for her stints on the Jimmy Fallon Show, Last Comic Standing and 30 Rock, she will soon appear on Curb Your Enthusiasm and au naturel in the March issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.  Today she takes BrickUnderground on a tragiocomic journey through her apartment dwelling past.

Last night Comedy Central aired their roast of Charlie Sheen, and even for a roast one joke in particular seemed to get people upset when Amy Schumer made a joke to Steve O about Ryan Dunn. But here’s the thing; fuck Ryan Dunn. It’s not like he was torn out of his house by a tiger. He killed himself and a friend after drinking his way to a BAL just under .2 and then drove his Porsche 130 miles per hour. That dipshit deserved to die. I feel worse for the trees Ryan hit than I do for Ryans friends and family. We needed those, fuckface!

Secondly, Amy Schumer is awesome. She could have handed Steve a sketch of Dunns charred remains for all I care.

Now that the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen aired last night — the network’s highest rated roast in history, by the way, with an average of 6.4 million viewers — the outrage has begun. Hooray! But, really most of the outrage has been directed toward comedian Amy Schumer, who as you’re probably well aware, made a joke about Jackass star Steve-O, who was one of the roasters last night.

While Steve-O was clearly the punch line of the joke, the setup starred Steve-O’s late friend and fellow Jackass Ryan Dunn, who died in June when he decided to get drunk (his blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit), drive 132 miles per hour and accidentally crash into a tree. Dunn’s passenger, friend Zachary Hartwell, also died. Anyway…

Last night Schumer made the following joke: “I truly am — no joke — sorry for the loss of your friend Ryan Dunn. I know you must have been thinking it could’ve been me. And I know we were all thinking, Why wasn’t it?” Harsh? Sure. But, it is a roast after all. And the joke was about wanting Steve-O to die! Which she obviously doesn’t mean. It was an insult to Steve-O; not Dunn. But, as always, too many people heard what they thought they should hear and freaked the fuck out.

People began tweeting their outrage, and headlines popped up online this morning like, “Did Amy Schumer Cross the Line with the Ryan Dunn Joke?” and “Amy Schumer Ryan Dunn Joke Angers Viewers of Charlie Sheen Roast.” (Note that these headlines label the joke as a “Ryan Dunn” joke, which it wasn’t.) So, I chatted with Schumer today to if she felt she needed to amend anything or even apologize for what she said.

“I don’t feel the need to apologize,” Schumer says. “I respect people’s opinion as long as they understand what the joke is. It wasn’t a Ryan Dunn joke. It was a Steve-O joke. It was a typical roast joke. It had the formula of any roast joke. That wasn’t even one of the jokes I had where I was thinking, ‘here it comes, I’m going to drop the hammer now.”
