Actress/comedian Amy Schumer is being accused of “cyberbullying” after she made a petty joke about actress Nicole Kidman’s appearance at the US Open followed by a swipe at actor Ashton Kutcher and actress Mila Kunis.
Schumer mocked Kidman on Instagram, posting a photograph of the actress at the Open on Saturday in New York, implying that she looked robotic while sitting there, quipping, “This how human sit.” She later deleted the snide comment and sort of apologized but only after she was hammered for it.
After the faux apology, she decided to go after Kutcher and Kunis on Monday, ridiculing the couple who wrote in defense of their former “That ’70s Show” star Danny Masterson who was convicted in May of raping two women. He will get a minimum of 30 years and the couple was lobbying for the minimum sentence, not for him to walk free.
“I want to apologise to all the people I hurt posting a photo of Nicole Kidman and alluding to her being an alien,” Schumer wrote. “I will be asking the cast of ‘That ’70s Show’ to write letters advocating for my forgiveness. #takingtimetoheal.”

Those who saw the post accused Schumer of “mean girl public trolling.”
KIIS FM radio host Kyle Sandilands thrashed Schumer for her post, which he felt was made in incredibly bad taste, and her “apology.” He accused her of being a “troll” on “The Kyle and Jackie O Show,” according to the Daily Mail.
“Amy Schumer is a troll. She is joking about a person that got raped. This b**ch has got no idea,” Sandilands told his co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson on Tuesday.
“I don’t know why she feels she can be an a**hole to everyone. I just don’t like her because she’s just a horrible human being. She’s nothing,” he added.

As for Kidman, sources close to her told the Daily Mail that she was not paying attention to Schumer, “It’s kind of silly and she’s not fazed.”
“Are you cyberbullying Oscar and Emmy winner Nicole Kidman right now,” one follower asked Schumer, according to Page Six.
“Bringing others down is always a sign of our own internal insecurities anyway, so the critics here should hold a mirror,” another stated.
One Instagram follower wrote, “This post seems beneath you. What point are you trying to make here?”

“Wow so mean! I expected one of my favourite comedians to have more respect for other people’s feelings than this,” someone else declared.
Users on X were not amused:
It’s not funny at all.

How is Amy Schumer still relevant? No one even likes her anymore

She’s the ultimate example of “it’s okay when I do it.”
Calling her a comedian is a better joke than anything she’s ever made.

Amy Schumer is a disgusting human being. It runs in the family.

Amy Schumer is repulsive. She does tampon commercials and she’s attacking Nicole Kidman? I’d boycott her, but I already do. Like she could hold a candle to Kidman. Lol
