Presto2001: I can’t believe there are people that think this was real and that the Will Smith thing was staged.

ArthurMorgan1874: Anyone who thought it was [funny] really needs to a long, hard look at themselves in the mirror and say “I’m a fucking a moron.”

Chuck1705: People have very thin skin these days.

YouTube Comments

bw1030: For me, it isn't the "disrespect to Kirsten Dunst" it's the fact that Schumer stole the joke (big shocker) from Neil Patrick Harris when he did it at the Oscars 7 years ago. Except when Schumer did it, she performed it in such an uncomfortable and comedically tone-deaf way that it rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. So basically she stole an old joke, tried to rework it to seem original, but ultimately made it so much worse and drew backlash.

Rafael C. C.: "Dunst has always proven to be a very classy person. Very respectful and down-to-earth. No matter if Dunst was in on the joke, this year's jokes were the worst, only matched by the lack of organization and selfish attitudes of presenters. I miss the old times (three years ago far enough). The Oscars were classy, jokes were limited, and people went there to the Oscars, not to a circus."

BlueHeavenly Lennard: I am convinced that expressing outrage is a national pastime now.

A certain user under the username addiat meikokusuma also said,

Even Kirsten was laughing. People need to take a chill pill...Goodness. Relax, it is a harmless joke.

Francis Xavier: "This bit was actually so fun, would have been fun to do one early as well maybe spotlight more tables. Did you see Diddy at Billie Eilish's table haha. Otherwise, if its choreo'd, there's no harm as always."

Amy Schumer Received Death Threats After The Joke

Amy Schumer claims that she was the target of death threats following a joke she made about Kirsten Dunst's role at the Oscars as a seat filler.

Schumer expressed to Howard Stern in an interview, "I did a bit with Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons that was completely orchestrated. We talked beforehand, and we all worked it out together."

She clarified that she had contacted anyone who she intended to make fun of during the performance in advance to inquire about whether or not it was acceptable to do so.

But in the days after the Oscars, Schumer began to receive death threats because of the joke. She claimed that many people were upset with her because she disrespected Kirsten Dunst in that way.

She claimed that there were so many threats and that they were such a sensitive matter that the Secret Service got in touch with her.

After hearing that Schumer was being threatened because of the joke, Dunst reportedly sought to alleviate the situation by disclosing that she was aware of it.
