'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook' Season 2: Fans wonder why Food Network censored the word 'vagina' in Chris' story
Amy Schumer is back with Season 2 of her popular culinary show, 'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook'. Despite Amy's immense love for food, the talented comic unfortunately doesn't boast of being a good cook. Also, thanks to the pandemic, Amy was left with a lot of time in her hands, so she decided to roll up her sleeves and learn the art of cooking. Luckily for her, she didn't have to look too far for guidance on mastering the basics of cooking, as her dear husband Chris Fischer happens to be a celebrity chef.
Hence, Amy teamed up with Chris to learn the fine art of cooking. Her hilarious adventures in the kitchen are documented by the couple's nanny, Jane. Season 2 of 'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook' kicked off with the theme of learning to cook packaged food using fresh ingredients. For this very interesting theme, Chris asked Amy which packaged food did she enjoy eating the most. The 'Inside Amy Schumer' star immediately declared that she loved munching on pigs in the blanket.
Amy goes on to explain her love for the dish by sharing how she'll even attend a wedding just to have her favorite dish. As Chris began preparing the dish and teaching Amy and us on how to cook the delicious dish, Amy began her random banter. She began wondering why the dish was called pigs in the blanket and then turned to her husband to ask him if he ever covered a real pig in a blanket. Chris surprises her by responding with a yes.
He then narrates a story of how he was once taking care of a sow (female pig). The sow happened to be pregnant and had a long labor. According to him, she was having trouble getting the piglets out, so to comfort her, Chris reportedly put a blanket around her. He then continues with the sow's ordeal by explaining how she was struggling to get the piglets out, so to help her with it, he reportedly stuck his arm inside the pig to pull the piglets out. While explaining the incident Chris used the term "vagina" twice, as he detailed out how he stuck his arm inside the sow's vagina, and how his whole arm fit into the vagina. Both times, Food Network bleeped the word.
This left fans wondering why the network was censoring a word like vagina. A fan tweeted, "The @FoodNetwork just bleeped out the word vagina during an S2 | E1 of Amy Schumer Learns to Cook. Is the word vagina not allowed in the food world?"

Despite the network's censoring, fans still seemed to love Chris' story. A fan shared, "Is your husband a comedian too? He’s hilarious. I love how he never laughs at your jokes and stares into nothingness for hours at a time. The story about his entire arm in a pigs vagina? Now that’s good tv. And btw those were not empanadas either."
