Amy Schumer took to social media on March 28, the day after the Oscars aired, to address the moment involving Kirsten Dunst, according to E! News. In an Instagram story that has since expired, Schumer wrote, “Hey I appreciate the love for Kirsten Dunst. I love her too!” The comedian added, “That was a choreographed bit she was in on.” Schumer insisted she “Wouldn’t disrespect that queen like that.”
Some may have noticed during the broadcast that Plemons couldn’t quite keep a straight face as Schumer started this bit. He grinned and chuckled as Schumer approached their table, which seemed to signal he knew what was coming. Durst kept a straight face, however, which may have convinced many viewers she hadn’t known what Schumer was going to do. After Schumer sat in Dunst’s seat, she gushed over Plemons. He pointed out the woman Schumer pulled away was his “wife,” and Schumer replied it was “weird” he was married to a seat filler.
Luckily, a separate photo snapped during the bit showed Dunst standing just outside the camera frame, chuckling as Schumer played out the chat with Plemons, shared Page Six. Schumer took digs at plenty of celebrities during her hosting moments, but it seemed the Durst bit was the one that really riled up people. Luckily, it was all in good fun, even if Schumer had to temper the flames of criticism.
