Amy Schumer slammed for calling Emma Stone toxic, branding Emily Blunt's marriage to John Krasinski a PR stunt
Though Amy Schumer was seemingly joking but fans thought it was in bad taste. Netizens slammed the comedian and asked her to "shut up"
Just a day before her 40th birthday, comedian Amy Schumer went on an Instagram rampage, attacking several celebrities jokingly. In a since-deleted Instagram story, the 40-year-old comedian shared a screenshot of a post by Disney's ‘Cruella’ Instagram page with a so-called review of both the film and its titular star. She wrote: “It’s well known Emma Stone is a toxic person but Cruella is amazing!!”
Schumer also did something similar with ‘The Office’ star John Krasinski and ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ actor Emily Blunt. She took a dig at the couple's 10-year marriage in a since-deleted Instagram post with a review of their new film ‘A Quiet Place Part II’.
Schumer wrote, "I loved every second of @aquietplacemovie even better than the first one which blew me away. Amazing to be in a movie theater!! and although Ive said for a long time I think Emily and John have a pretend marriage for publicity. But I still think you should see it this rainy weekend." Krasinski commented on Schumer's post with: "Thank you Amy!… for blowing up our whole marriage spot."
While Krasinski seemed to not mind the joke, and Stone is not on the social media platform at all — she once said in an interview, “It seems like everyone's cultivating their lives on Instagram or on different forms of social media, and what pictures look best of their day” — people online found another reason to hate Schumer.
A Twitter user wrote, “someone please go check up on amy schumer, i think she completely lost it.” Another Twitter user said, “shut up amy schumer no one likes you.” One person wrote online, “one of the worst mistakes we ever made as a country was allowing amy schumer.”

“amy schumer is exactly why we should gatekeep comedy,” said a Twitter user. “why does amy schumer think she’s still relevant and liked?” asked another person. “If I see Amy Schumer in an ad, I immediately leave the site,” said another Twitter user.

Schumer has always found hate online. And the hatred often comes from a place of sexism and fatphobia. A clear example of this is Amy Schumer's top-voted user-submitted definiton on UrbanDictionary. It says, "Literally the worst comedian to ever exist. She's so fat, she makes rasputia from norbit look skinny compared to her. her jokes are so unfunny, she make me want to shoot myself. Her movies and show on comedy central are so terrible, it makes teen Titans Go look like a masterpiece. And every time it's her turn to roast someone in the comedy Central roasts, I just change the channel to ESPN. Also, her name is on my death note."
The other definitions on the website don't differ much in their feelings for the comedian. But she does not seem to care. In a 2019 interview with the New York Times, she said that in show business, she knows what it’s like to be cool and not cool. “Being cool is powerful in this industry, but there’s nothing more powerful than not giving a f***,” she said.
