Somewhere in the world, there is a list of people whose opinions are valid and a list of opinions that are not; Amy Schumer is on the latter. The comedian, who has one of the worst rated programmes in Netflix history, "Amy Schumer: The Leather Special", is one of those comics who only has one joke: being controversial.
Whether it's her remarks about Mexicans being rapists or her suggestion in a now-deleted tweet that implied black men are more misogynous than their white counterparts, Schumer is a divisive character who prods the fire with her hypothetical tong in order to stir up a reaction and keep herself relevant.
After being labelled as having a "blind spot for racism" by the Guardian, Schumer - seemingly ignoring the fact that jokes can be racist - responded by saying that what she says is not racist because it's a joke. “Playing with race is a thing we are not supposed to do, which is what makes it so fun for comics,” she wrote. “You can call it a ‘blind spot for racism’ or ‘lazy’ but you are wrong. It is a joke and it is funny. I know because people laugh at it.”
Now, Schumer has taken aim at the Royal Family.
During an interview, Schumer was asked to provide her thought on the upcoming royal wedding, and the "comedian" didn't hold back in her opinion; labelling it as a "Westminster Dog Show."
"This poor girl. Your wedding, everyone says it’s your day. It’s YOUR day. She’s like, no it’s not. She has to meet all these foreign dignitaries she’s never met before, there’s so much pressure ... can you imagine having a worse wedding?" she asked.
"That would suck. Her girls from high school aren’t going to be there. It’s like a parade, it’s like Westminster Dog Show."
I know, right? How dare she talk about our royals like that. Besides, it's not like Meghan didn't know what she was getting herself into when she chose to marry into The Most Famous Family In The World.
Schumer recently celebrated her own wedding day, with her getting married to her husband back in February. The pair had dated for just a few months before he popped the question and Schumer described the proposal as "worthless" during one of her stand up routines.
"He’s heard me make fun of his proposal. Part of what I love about him is that behaviour. You don’t want a guy who nails it — I don’t, anyway. Swans, violins? OK, I don’t want to marry my best girlfriend who would nail it like that. I want a guy who doesn’t know what he’s doing," she laughed.
While Schumer may not be looking forward to the royal wedding, the majority of the UK is. If you know anything about us Brits, it's that we don't need an excuse to get drunk. Two people getting married? Let's get down the pub in the morning and get on the beers. Cheers to that!
