Amy Schumer used an Oscar joke about Alec Baldwin and the filming of “Rust” during a comedy set this weekend in Vegas.
Schumer told a handful of jokes too controversial for the Oscars during his April 2 comedy show at the Mirage Theater in Las Vegas, according to Vanity Fair. Schumer co-hosted the 94th Academy Awards alongside Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes.
“I want to preface these Oscar jokes by saying my lawyer told me not to tell them. Don’t tell anyone and don’t get mad at me,” she told the crowd.
The jokes mentioned the shooting of Joe Rogan, James Franco and Baldwin, Vanity Fair reported.

“‘Don’t Look Up’ is the name of a movie? Rather don’t look up the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun,” Schumer said. “I had no right to say anything about all this [at the Oscars]but you can just come and [slap] somebody.”
Baldwin was sued for wrongful death after a gun he was holding on the set of “Rust” discharged, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. The actor claimed he did not pull the trigger on the gun and an investigation into the shooting is still ongoing.

Schumer also addressed Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars while filming the comedy, referring to the actor as “Ali.” The comedian was referring to Smith’s performance as Muhammed Ali in the biopic about the boxer.
“I felt a little like myself…and then all of a sudden Ali pushed his way through it,” Schumer joked.

“And it was just fucking disappointing. All I can say is it was really sad, and I think that says a lot about toxic masculinity. It was really upsetting, but I think that the best way to comfort us would be for me to say the Oscar jokes that I was not allowed to say on TV.”
Smith has since apologized and resigned from the Academy.
