WHEN YOU’RE PROMOTING a movie, chances are that you’re going to have to endure an excruciating interview or two.

For Amy Schumer, this happened yesterday with Australian radio station KIIS 101.1.

The actress sat down with KIIS FM hosts Matt Tilley and Jane Hall for a brief chat about the movie and it all started out pleasantly enough.

About a minute-and-a-half into the interview, Jane Hall complimented Amy Schumer’s legs in the movie and Schumer explained that the film’s costume designer purposefully made everything “a little too short”.

Just so you’re uncomfortable. Like, “That’s a lot of leg.”

And here’s when things got frosty.

As Schumer was discussing the costumes, Matt Tilley interjected with the following question.

Do you have the word skanky in America?

At which point, Amy Schumer’s face turned to stone.


Evidently displeased at Tilley’s use of the word, she quickly made it clear that she was indeed familiar with the word word and not all that happy with his use of it.

He tried to make things better…

Come on, that’s the character of the movie. I’m not trying to offend you.

But she was having none of it.

Whatever you’re trying to do, you are. That’s a rude question.

And it only gets more painful from there.

Her face in this photo speaks volumes.

It looks like people are firmly #TeamAmy, though.
