Amy Schumer is sharing her thoughts on Hilaria Baldwin‘s recent heritage controversy.
In case you missed it, Hilaria came under fire a few months ago for allegedly misrepresenting her heritage and adopting a Spanish accent.
Amy poked fun at the controversy in a now deleted Instagram post, sharing a photo of herself in a big, floppy hat with the caption, “I get it. I went to Spain a couple times and loved it too.”
A few days earlier she had deleted another Instagram post involving Hilaria where she had reposted Hilaria‘s photo of her in lingerie. Amy parodied the photo pretending it was her, but it led to some body-shaming comments on her page.
She explained her thoughts on the scandal and her reasoning for deleting the post in an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday (January 26).
“Oh my god, I really don’t even know what to say. I didn’t know that was going to happen, obviously,” Amy said. “I feel like it was so insane and entertaining that I think Hilaria is probably the only person who is happy about the insurrection in the Capitol, because it distracted [people] from that.”
“It’s a little insane to be in, like, lingerie with your baby. I just thought that was a little funny, and then I saw that she made a video and she seemed a little bit upset,” Amy explained. “Not at me, but about the comments she was getting. I was just like, ‘I don’t want to be mean,’ and she seemed like maybe it hurt her feelings, so I just took it down.”
“We were just playing with each other, and then the whole Spain thing came out,” she continued. “I just felt like everybody else watching it. Just like, ‘What is going on?’ I thought we were still kinda playing, so I wrote, ‘Hey, look, I love Spain too.’ But then it became this whole big thing and people were really upset so I just took it down [too].”
The 39-year-old comedian added, “She is amazing and I wish her and her family the best. And I hope she gets to visit Spain as much as she wants.”
