Amy Schumer has spoken out in response to allegations that she stole a joke about Leonardo DiCaprio from the 2022 Oscars.
The comedian, who hosted the 94th Annual Academy Awards, replied to charges that one of her jokes during the Oscars keynote was stolen from Twitter during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen.
“OK. I’d want to point out that I haven’t used Twitter in a long time “According to Variety, Schumer said. “I’ve delegated it to my helper so that I may stay alive and not commit suicide. In addition, Suli McCullough wrote that joke. But I always appreciate you people making sure I don’t start stealing.”
“Leonardo DiCaprio is doing so much for the world,” Schumer, 40, said at the 2022 Oscars about the Shutter Island star.
“For his girlfriends, he’ll leave things in better condition,” she continued. The Wolf of Wall Street actor, 47, is dating Camila Morrone, a 22-year-old model.
Amy also said that she had completed a lie-detector exam with Vanity Fair, proving that she is not a joke thief. “Thank God, they asked, ‘Have you ever stolen a joke?’ I responded no, and they replied, ‘That’s true.'”
She further stated, “So, everyone just relaxes. It’s insane. I’m amusing enough without having to borrow [expletive].”
