Promoting her film Trainwreck in Australia this week, Amy Schumer did an interview with two radio hosts, one of whom was rather less than tactful.
The film is a subversive romantic comedy about a promiscuous, hard-drinking woman who comes to realize how destructive her behavior is. After Schumer admitted, “there’s a lot of me in this movie,” one of the interviewers decided it was relevant to ask, “Do you have the word ‘skanky’ in America?”
We do have that word here, as a matter of fact, and Schumer swiftly turned the comment around and into a “your mom” joke, which just made things weirder.
“I’m not trying to offend you,” he insisted, to which Schumer replied, “Whatever you’re trying to do, you are. That’s a rude question.” Talk about a trainwreck.
