Amy Schumer on her Steve-O, Ryan Dunn roast joke: “I don’t feel the need to apologize”

Now that the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen aired last night — the network’s highest rated roast in history, by the way, with an average of 6.4 million viewers — the outrage has begun. Hooray! But, really most of the outrage has been directed toward comedian Amy Schumer, who as you’re probably well aware, made a joke about Jackass star Steve-O, who was one of the roasters last night.

While Steve-O was clearly the punch line of the joke, the setup starred Steve-O’s late friend and fellow Jackass Ryan Dunn, who died in June when he decided to get drunk (his blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit), drive 132 miles per hour and accidentally crash into a tree. Dunn’s passenger, friend Zachary Hartwell, also died. Anyway…

Last night Schumer made the following joke: “I truly am — no joke — sorry for the loss of your friend Ryan Dunn. I know you must have been thinking it could’ve been me. And I know we were all thinking, Why wasn’t it?” Harsh? Sure. But, it is a roast after all. And the joke was about wanting Steve-O to die! Which she obviously doesn’t mean. It was an insult to Steve-O; not Dunn. But, as always, too many people heard what they thought they should hear and freaked the fuck out.

People began tweeting their outrage, and headlines popped up online this morning like, “Did Amy Schumer Cross the Line with the Ryan Dunn Joke?” and “Amy Schumer Ryan Dunn Joke Angers Viewers of Charlie Sheen Roast.” (Note that these headlines label the joke as a “Ryan Dunn” joke, which it wasn’t.) So, I chatted with Schumer today to if she felt she needed to amend anything or even apologize for what she said.

“I don’t feel the need to apologize,” Schumer says. “I respect people’s opinion as long as they understand what the joke is. It wasn’t a Ryan Dunn joke. It was a Steve-O joke. It was a typical roast joke. It had the formula of any roast joke. That wasn’t even one of the jokes I had where I was thinking, ‘here it comes, I’m going to drop the hammer now.”

So, we have to ask. What do you guys think? Did Schumer do anything wrong– or is this a case of “selective outrage,” as comedian Jim Norton tweeted this morning?

    Why’s everyone gotta be humorless cunts? Schumer’s funny. Get over yourselves, pukes.

  • jm313

    I understand the joke is not targeted at Ryan Dunn but I still found it a bit offensive

  • justice

    me and my friends are mean to each other in a joking manor but if i were him i would have walked off. ryan dunn was a life long friend of steve-o’s and yea that was out of line. what if shcumers mom just died and steve-0 made a joke about that…the back lash would have ruined him not that he’s not ruined already? I’m a HUGE greg geraldo fan rip and he would have NEVER went that far. it was of bad taste and not funny

  • Jeffrey Martin

    The only issue that I have with this joke is that it was not funny. Lol

    The fact that you fucktards are even arguing about this means that none of you have a life. But it’s funny in its own right reading your dumbshit ass posts!!! FROFLMFAO!!!11

  • julie

    yeah i think she crossed the line mainly because you could tell it really upset stevo. he didn’t smile he was just like wtf. regardless of who it was about

  • Frawtchins

    People here really are missing the point. When is it alright to make a joke about the death of a person to a friend of that very person so soon after the incident? You’re all comparing things that are totally different. Any digs at Amy Winehouse weren’t addressed specifically to her close friends.

  • mb2235

    it’s a lot different seeing it written than it is hearing it live. Even if she won’t apologize for what she says, she should at least have something to say about how she said it

    I bet I can offend everyone hear more than that stupid joke. How about a quote from a criticly acclaimed book that was made into a movie staring Christian Bale.
    “”I try using the power drill on her, forcing it into her mouth, but she’s conscious enough, has strength, to close her teeth, clamping them down, and even though the drill goes through the teeth quickly, it fails to interest me and so I hold her head up, blood dribbling from her mouth, and make her watch the rest of the tape and while she’s looking at the girl on the screen bleed from almost every possible orifice, I’m hoping she realizes that this would have happened to her no matter what. That she would have ended up lying here, on the floor in my apartment, hands nailed to posts, cheese and broken glass pushed up into her cunt, her head cracked and bleeding purple, no matter what other choice she might have made; that if she had gone to Nell’s or Indochine or Mars or Au Bar instead of M.K., if she had simply not taken the cab with me to the Upper West Side, that this all would have happened anyway. I would have found her. This is the way the earth works. I decide not to bother with the camera tonight.

    I’m trying to ease one of the hollow plastic tubes from the dismantled Habitrail system up into her vagina, forcing the vaginal lips around one end of it, and even with most of it greased with olive oil, it’s not fitting in properly. During this, the jukebox plays Frankie Valli singing “The Worst That Could Happen” and I’m grimly lip‑syncing to it, while pushing the Habitrail tube up into this bitch’s cunt. I finally have to resort to pouring acid around the outside of the pussy so that the flesh can give way to the greased end of the Habitrail and soon enough it slides in, easily. “I hope this hurts you,” I say.”

  • patrick bateman

    If you were offended then mission accomplished. Any joke made at roast that doesn’t offend someone is a probably terrible. If you don’t agree then you miss the whole point and maybe you just should not watch. Personally I find Jackass and all involved to be offensively stupid so I just change the channel. I hear some people think Everyone loves Raymond is funny. Give it a try maybe you’ll like it. I don’t but I have a brain.

    Also, cut Amy some slack. She is going through a transitional period in her life. She is in her thirties and must come to grips with the inevitability of her deteriorating youth with each passing year. I mean this is a person that made her name by making fun of a dead man’s best friend. She even went on Howard Stern and talked about how she broke up with a guy because he used to fuck her like a rag doll. Such a bold and powerful woman whose clearly NOT desperate for attention. And besides that Steve-o joke was fucking Hilarious. I mean she was all “…and I know we were all thinking, Why wasn’t it”. HAAHAHAHAHAAAH!! Get it? “Why wasn’t it?”, cause she was implying that she wanted Steve-o dead. I wish I could come up with something that clever. : (

  • Axl Pose

    I think Amy is absolutely justified. Tragedies are something to be made fun of. But I think we should be pushing the boundaries even more! We need to start making jokes about baby fucking, serial murder, child rape, and aborted fetuses. In fact, in future roasts, we should have real time tragedies, like have one of the comedians get stabbed in the neck or something and then have another comedian make a joke about it while pissing into the open wounds of the corpse. Only then will we ever reach true comedic perfection. Always remember that a cheap laugh or two is more important than anything. I mean its a roast people, come on. And apologizing is for pussies. God bless you Amy. God bless America.

    Fucking dumbass Ryan Dunn got drunk, chose to drive and ended up killing two people. He does not need to be memorialized, idolized, or ever referred to again unless it is to make fun of his stupid ass. Would people still be sympathetic if he killed a family? No. He’s a fucking dumbass and so are Steve-O and anyone else that feels sorry for him.

  • buzzit

    amy is just a comedian so it is ok.

    that’s what everyone said when bill maher called palin a c_nt.

    so why are you people so upset?

  • keith

    If people have to ask “Did she cross the line?” chances are they have no visceral outrage and are just looking for something to gossip about. 

  • Gd

    I dunno i just think any joke concerning the recently deceased is just that little bit too far. anyways if you go look at how steve had been taking it since. he couldn’t give a fuck. He just looked a little hurt on tv (which granted he is entitled too is a sensitive subject) and people have has a meltdown.

  • sup idiots

    for the record, and I’m just saying here, there’s a difference between making fun of live and recently deceased people…

  • guest

    No matter how much you all like Amy, you’re the ones on the high horses right now. 

    “Your absolutely correct, people who get offended by WORDS are simple minded and weak. They don’t deserve to have an opinion.”

    First off, it’s ‘you’re’, dumbass. Second of all, words can hurt. I lost my best friend last year, and the point that this joke crosses the line is when it uses “I’m sure you wish it were you” as the set up for its punch line. When you lose a best friend, YOU DO WISH IT WOULD HAVE BEEN YOU. Did you see the cut to Steve-O’s face after that joke? You’d have to be a very cold person to not see and feel for the unhappiness in his eyes. Everyone making fun of him for drug use after a real, biochemical problem was harsh, but that was acceptable on a roast. To make fun of a loved one dying is past a joke, no matter. Let me know when your best friend in the world dies and I’ll give you a punch line–you can let me know when you think it’s funny….ignorant assholes

  • Randomhero

    That’s what you may think. But, how about you have some empathy and look at it through Steve O’s eyes. I’m pretty sure if anyone’s best friend dies then a joke which includes them is taken personally. 

  • Rikki

    I love how serious people get on here.This coment shit is priceless

  • VLH****

    Look, – people are massively missing the point if they wanna use the ‘free speech’ and ‘anti sensorship’ arguments to defend this woman. We all love a good roast, it’s funny to watch somebody having the piss taken out of them, but you know, if somebody thinks it’s acceptable to make jokes involving somebody’s recently deceased friend, then they they clearly lack insight and forsight.  If she’d have said something like ” Steve-O, people are always sayin’ that you’re gonna end up killin’ yourself one day…..we all wish you would” it still would have been ‘below the belt’ , but much less so than using Ryan’s death as a prop for the joke.  We joke about death all of the time, it’s a part of life, – bad taste jokes about the death of Princess Diana, Michael Jackson jokes, and more recently , Amy Winehouse. … it happens a lot, – but that is very different to what happened with Steve-O and Amy S.    How can this woman have thought it was a wise idea to use Ryan’s death in a joke to roast one of his best friends who is clearly still coming to terms with the loss ??!!  Whether or not it was funny is irrelevant !!  Nobody is saying that comedy should be sensored, or free speech be compromised !!  The world would be an uptight boring place jokes were always ‘P.C’ , but for fuck SAKE ! You can’t use the death of a person’s best friend to roast them, – !!!!!!!  For every person defending this woman….think of losing somebody you love dearly and then imagine somebody saying to you , less than a year later “Oh I’m sorry  for the death of your brother…we all wish it would have been you”   And the fact that Dunn was over the limit makes it okay does it ?? No, it actually doesnt.

  • Jims

    It was a ROAST JOKE and she was funny if you cant handle that type of humor do not watch ROASTS!!!! She was one of the funniest people up there that night.

  • Fuckya

    I didn’t think the joke was in good taste. You don’t joke about someones dead friend. Or anyone being dead for that matter. The rest of the roast jokes were funny, but that one, way to far. Especially since Steve-O had suicidal problems. Thats my 2 cents, and no I’m never sensitive abotu jokes, but that one hit a little too close to home.

  • Davedogg1991

    there are some ignorant people… clearly everyone knows it was a joke.. it just wasn’t funny. you cant “roast” a guy when you mention his dead buddy! that’s a burn… the punchline missed its mark. it is fine she joked about wishing Steve-o was dead, that’s all anyone said about will shat., but it was poorly executed

  • Nickster

    It’s not bold or clever to make insensitive remarks like that…stir up a hornet’s nest of publicity, push the boundaries of taste and hurt some people’s feelings in the process….don’t worry doll, it’s all about $$$  innit?

    It’s just lazy ‘humour’; she ain’t remotely funny or creative and resorted to stooping so low, she might as well have taken a a shit on live TV whilst she was down there…It would have been less offensive an undoubtedly more appropriate.RIP Ryan & Zachary 

  • DF

    I thought her bit was the BEST. There aren’t any “out-of-bounds” comments in a Sheen roast. Steve-o and cronies made a sweet penny risking their safety/lives, so boo-fuckin-hoo that a dude that CHOSE to live a reckless lifestyle got burned in the end. I feel bad for these guys the way I felt bad for Evil Knievel- ZERO. They knew the risks, they enjoyed the limelight on the tightrope, they fell. Buh-bye.

    THE BEST ANSWER:  First off, none of you dipshits are right.  Ok so Ryan Dunn died; that’s sad. Ok, so they are at a ROAST…..keyword roast, which means to try and take jokes as far as you can while still maintaining at least some hint of comedic thought put into the joke. So basically making mean jokes that are funny is the goal. ladeedadeeda…. (here comes Amy Schumer on stage) She says jokes about steve-o/ryan dunn or whatever. Everyone is pissed. SOOOO that is why we are here right now to see what everyone thinks. Well here is what you should thing: Amy Schumer tried to make a funny joke about steve-o involving ryan dunn. Although it is a roast; which means she shouldn’t be blamed for her harsh joke, she should be blamed for making a non funny joke (which made her look like a total bitch). FIN

    Who cares, he died because of his lack of intelligence. He could have taken innocent lives while driving under the influence, so fuck him. The joke was some like ” Steve-o should have died instead of that other guy”….She didn’t make fun of Ryan Dunn, she was making fun of Steve O…IT’S A FUCKING ROAST, GO HARD OR GO HOME.

    It is a roast. however, it is pretty fucked up for her to bring up Ryan Dunn at all considering it’s still such a sensitive matter. Words are words. But there are lines that don’t need to be crossed. I understand both sides of the argument, but I am more strongly sided with the “it’s fucked up” side. Rip Ryan Dunn.

  • Anonymouswatcher

    OK fools. Let me break it down. The point is: We all know how much it affected Steve-O. It’s like someone’s mother died and you poked fun of it. Quit acting like it’s not a “Ryan Dunn” joke, it’s just as much a Ryan Dunn joke as it was a Steve-O joke. She used that platform as a launching point. She wouldn’t have thought it funny to use any random dead person – she exploited the death of his friend for laughs. That’s the key point here. I could see Steve-O tearing up, and the only thing I could think was: Fuck this Amy girl. People die. It sucks. 

    Most of the jokes on roasts are completely horrible jokes, racism, sexism, the blackest types of humor. But generally they have some sort of off-stage relationship and here comes this bimbo who no one knows spouting about this dead best friend…Oh well, she kinda looks like a bunch of generic girls I know, weird shaped nose and beaky mouth…she won’t ever get too famous, just a D-Lister rising up the ladder of cocks to C-Lister.

I actually rewound the footage and was pissed. Jokes are funny, yes some push the border, but making a joke about your friend who died and following up by saying we all hoped it was you… Poor taste in humor.

    Ryan Dunn was mentioned in the joke. Ryan Dunn, regardless of how low your IQ is, was NOT the joke. 

  • Michael C

    I personally think there is never too soon of a time for a joke. Amy just should have been more tactful with her joke. She approached it with the wrong direction and with a weak punch line. Freedom of speech has nothing to do with it nor does people being too sensitive. You could see the pain in Steve-O’s eyes, it wasn’t even a joke that could be shrugged off and laughed about, it was pure stupidity. Like I said any joke can be given at anytime as long as it is properly delivered. Amy failed miserably with her delivery, plain and simple.

  • Who the fuck is Amy schumer?

    Yeah obviously none of you little sorry peices of shit have never lost a close friend. Well I did in June as well except he died in Afghanistan, and if somebody used him in some fuckin crude joke I would personally kick there fucking teeth out. There is just some shit you don’t talk about so fuck you douchebags and your freedom of speech bullshit.
    Freedom of speech has nothing to do with showing a little respect. And anybody who finds this bitch funny is just as much a peice of trash as she is.

    I’d like to agree with max below me hence him making a great point and it is most definitely true that this was a horrible decision and pretty dishonorable to drive like that with a friend in the car. However, you must recognize the fact that the passenger got in the car with him from the beginning and not only that but LET him drive at the supposed high speed they were going at the time of the accident. Getting back to the article, I wish I could agree with you on how the roast is supposed to be offensive and what not. Unfortunately, I do believe there is a line crossed when people make fun of the deceased. This type of humor is pure stupidity, talentless, DISGRACEFUL, looked down upon by FELLOW COMICS, and ultimately not funny! That being said Amy Schmuck has the charm of a fat and obese NRA member. On second thought maybe even less. The argument is that the insult comedy is supposed to be like this but if you take another second and think about it try and spot out another one of the comedians that said something similar to her at any point doing stand up in their lives let alone in a position where they’re supposed to be doing insult comedy. I hope this will help people see eye to eye with me here because another way you must look at it is imagining to be in someone like steve-o’s position. What if someone made fun of someone who literally just died! Have they even met before?! Did she know Ryan OR even steve-o!?!?! I bet if someone said something similar to this witch she would jump up in a hot minute. Sorry for running on, I grew up watching the CKY videos which happened to be a huge part of my life. The death of Ryan Dunn was pretty particularly devastating to me because of this. I’ll leave you with this..  ou must look at the other comics on the special like Lisa Lampanelli, Jeffrey Ross, late Greg Giraldo ect. You will see that no good comic reaches such a low point that they would throw such a disgusting low blow in the false name of humor. Please let me know if you EVER hear something of this woman related to comedy because I certainly never had. 
    RIP Patrice! RIP Greg Giraldo! RIP Ryan Dunn! Your legacy lives on and you certainly won’t be forgotten. The world is still laughing.

    The only fucked up thing about this situation is Zach Hartwell’s death.  We’ve all watched Jackass and have all laughed at the stunts they pull off (Especially Ryan Dunn’s); that doesn’t take away from the fact of how stupid he was driving 132 with a .2 BAC.  I think THAT is way more outrageous than a joke made in a Roast (which is meant to be one of the most offensive comedic performances) which wasn’t even directed at Ryan Dunn.  Yes, the joke was harsh, but she did not cross a line.  Her job is to make fun of people, nobody is safe.  Stupidity is the most common target for comedians, and as tragic as his death was, Ryan Dunn made a stupid decision.  Had John Lovitz, or any other roaster there, made the joke, this would not be as big of a deal.  It is because she is not well known.  I’m not saying you have to laugh at her joke, or that I necessarily agree with the content, but I do not think she is wrong.  Comedy is about going out of bounds, just ask Ryan Dunn.

    You can get pretty edgy. This joke wasn’t edgy. It was unthinking, insensitive and kind of stupid. Sure, you make fun of shit, but that’s crossing a steel wall when you’re talking about a close friend who just died.

    “Your friend just died and we all wish it was you instead.”

    Quote from Bam Margera “I seriously ran out of tears, you know, 4 days of nonstop crying, I’ve none left anymore.”

    It’s a giant void in the lives of all the people who were around them. You just don’t do that. There are some places you just cannot go.

    Something that had been pointed out by everyone who even remembered Amy was there was thst NO ONE who knew who the hell she is or why she was even there. For a Charlie Sheen roast, ahe is a nobody and her fans can get over it. Her joke was bad, it was worded badly and it wasn’t that long ago for Ryans death. Roast or not, mocking how a someone should have died instead of their best friend isn’t really funny. SHE wasn’t funny.

    do disrespect to Ryan Dunn or his family, but, i think every idiot who kills themself by drinking and driving deserve to have a few jokes said about them and their stupidity, its a mirical that he didnt kill an innocent person while he was being so stupid .

  • Ocrisia83

    I don’t understand why everyone is so up in arms about this, it was a ROAST. Has anyone ever seen a roast before? This is what they do they take low blows and what amy said wasn’t any worse than what anyone else said. Yes its sad that Ryan Dunn died of course it is but she wasn’t making fun of Ryan Dunn she was making fun of Steve O. Personally I don’t think Amy Schumer is that funny, but I feel like the reason she’s being singled out is because of the fact that she is less well known than the others. It’s a roast people. Get over it. She didn’t say anything horrible like he deserved to die and that’s what it seems like everyone is acting like she said. I thought the suicide joke was a lot worse than the Ryan Dunn joke. Butt that’s what a roast is. Get over it.

  • Sebastiandilling

    I follow M R and Kyna in there opinions. Also i think schumer was more like simply saying really mean stuff. Roasting always contains humor and is actually teasing somebody (sometimes in very brutal way), but when i was listening to her I didnt hear her tease but simply saying mean stuff. 

  • M R

    I think she was the least funny person on the roast, and that’s really saying something after being forced to watch Mike Tyson attempt to be funny. Regardless of who the butt of the joke was, the fact is she took the very recent death of one of Steve-O’s best friends and turned it into a joke. Ryan Dunn WAS in the joke, am I right? And he just died a few short months ago, right? It doesn’t matter how stupid the circumstances were surrounding his death. The people who cared about him are going to miss him just the same. I think that joke was written specifically because it would outrage people and get this unfunny twat attention she doesn’t deserve. Unfortunately, she was on Conan last night. Wasn’t funny then either.

  • Flinchmeister

    I was more offended by the fact that she got paid to do this. Who the fuck is she? Is she really a comedian? She’s about as funny as a bus load of dead kids. I hope her family dies so we can all have a good laugh about it.

  • Kyna

    sure sure it was a roast, but there is a line you don’t cross as a comdian and she should know that, even though it was not a dunn joke, it still used his death in the set-up that was a low hit, did anyone else notice after she said it steve-o looked like he was tearing up, the dude is/was in the middle of fucking grieving his friend thats a line you do not cross, cause you as it is clear you will out rage many jackass fans, cause it wasn’t just a stab at steve-o it was a stab at the whole fanbase.

  • Omg_kenner

    Well with free speech intact i’ll use mine to say she’s a cunt.  You free to say what you want, but it doesn’t mean you have to be a bitch.  She wasn’t even that funny.  There’s a point at ribbing someone and there’s a point where it was just clearly hurtful. 

  • Titlechix

    I feel the comment, in it’s entirety was in poor taste. Too soon and I cringed from beginning to end and heard and understood where she has hoped to be funny. It was disrespectful

  • Hello123

    Hello? has everyone forgotten Steve-o tried to commit suicide? the joke was not only in horrible taste because of what happened to the late Ryan Dunn, but also because Steve-O tried to kill himself in the past.

  • mang

    fuck everyone who is dumb enough to think this joke is just okay because its a roast. i don’t give a fuck where she said what she did, it was fucked up and that’s that. Why the fuck do you think 90% of the people who commented on this blog never heard of this bitch before she made these stupid comments?? its because she’s talentless! and she made that clear by the dumb shit she said about ryan dunn. and i don’t give a flying fuck if it was a “steve-o joke.” For example, if there was a gang war and a gangster just sprayed  whole park full of people so he could kill a member of a rival gang but he killed a few little kids in the process, you think those kids’ parents would just say, “it’s okay i know he wasn’t going for our children.” like…fuck everyone… develop brains.

  • Kevin Preston

    Amy rocked.
    I can only say that they are getting the right people in to pass the torches too if that be the case.
    She seems like an excellent stand in for Lisa Lampanelli but brings her own style of roasting.
    I thought I seen a hint of hurt in Steve-O’s face when she said that but in all sincerity I have no sympathy for Jackass characters because they tempt Darwin every time they do something stupid and when life bites them to find out they are mortal why should I care…I don’t, I also LMFAO.

    I watch the roasts over and over especially Greg Geraldo’s material because it’s not the joke that’s funny it’s the freaking truth in them.  Every last word that is harmful and what people are actually thinking is what makes it funny.

    Point is not really that did she go too far, hell no but I would say don’t drive 132 miles an hour drunk and murder yourself and one of your best friends in the process.  Why should I feel sympathy for Steve-o or Ryan Dunn, Dunn in his stupidity left a Widow in his wake

  • Brotelho

    It’s not about who the joke was for, it’s about respect for some one who just lost one of their best friends or family members. If that was any one of you that was sitting in Steve-o’s chair would have been upset. That’s like your brother dying and somebody using that in a joke against you. The joke did cross the line. Just because they’re celebrities doesn’t mean they’re not human. It wouldn’t have crossed the line if he died a year or two ago, but it’s only been a couple of months. Too soon.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_O3WSW4VHKCPZLPGH3OJRFSI57Y Eemah

    It was in really really poor taste.  Yes I know that nothing is off limits at a roast but everyone knows that there are things off limits at a roast.  No one would make fun of another persons dead child so let’s not act like there isn’t a line.  There are tons of things she could have made fun of Steve-O about.  His drug problems or anything he did on Jackass (ala eating ones own vomit) would be usable material.  Maybe Steve-O did ask himself “why not me?”  Maybe this is something he’s been wrestling with but he shouldn’t have to hear it from some unknown ass at a roast.  It was way too soon and in bad taste.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jeremy-Orr/100001658237133 Jeremy Orr

    I get that it wasn’t directed towards Ryan Dunn, but she could of used tons of other things besides that.

  • YooToob

    Even at a roast, it’s not in good taste to joke about a friend’s death, especially by saying that you “wish it were them instead”

    I don’t think she should apologize though, but just put yourselves in the hot seat on that one.  Unless you’ve had a close friend die, you wouldn’t understand.

  • Drummer325

    Emm9087, Cant agree more, the people who say ” This is america and she has freedom of speech, well, you’re right in one aspect, she can say anything she wants! The fact of the matter is when I was watching this roast, I couldn’t believe she had the audacity to say such a thing. If it was a friend of mine who had died in a car crash I probably would have walked off the stage to refrain from punching her in the face. There’s freedom of speech, but there’s also a thing called class, anyone who thinks it was ok to say this doesn’t have any.

  • David

    I’ve seen a lot of these roasts and they all have messed up jokes that get too personal, but this was easily the most offensive. Dude just died three months ago and that joke wasnt even clever.

  • Naji

    I know at a “roast” everything is fair game.But all I am saying is people make jokes about Michael Jackson all the time but would you say those same jokes to his mom’s face? And just because at a “roast” you can say whatever you want doesn’t mean you should. When it comes to Amy’s joke it’s not about “should” she have said that or is it crossing the line?But its more about as a person why would she “want” to make a joke like that I dunno in my heart I don’t think I could look right in someone’s face and make a joke about their best friend’s death.It just shows her sense of character is poor and well I like comedians who have “their own” “personal” limits.

  • lethaldoze

    A comedian should never have to apologize since freedom of expression is also the freedom to offend. I saw her in Columbus Ohio last night and she was hilarious.

  • bubbles

    I’m gonna write a comment I believe is intelligent,but really it’s completely stupid and expect people to respect it but some troll will reply thinking he is smart,when really he’s just putting big words in a simple sentence,with an insult,and rage about his opinion.

  • Home

    it was way too soon and being a complete asshole isn’t the same as being funny, and Amy isn’t funny at all

  • Dariyn Harvey

    The fact of the matter is, the ‘joke’ offended Steve-O. You can see it in his face. I think we all understand that it’s a roast, people, and some people get offended… but how would you feel if, say, a friend of yours had just died, and someone came to you and said “Man, I wish it was you instead.” In the instant that you hear that coming from someones mouth, your first though isn’t going to be “Oh, hey, that’s a funny joke.” Anyone would be offended by that, and Amy shouldn’t have been so insensitive about it. Ryan was a good friend of Steve-O’s, and I’m sure that he’s wished a few times that it was him instead (anybody would after the death of someone they cared about). They were there to roast Charlie Sheen, not poke fun at Steve-O using his dead friend to make him feel bad. Just my opinion.

  • speakingnvowels

    lets remind someone of the pain they felt while losing one of their childhood best friends and top it of with a jab by saying “i wish it was you that died instead.” i guess everyone is right, steve-o should feel great after that joke and just laugh away. “haha… my friends dead, thanks for reminding me.”

    its not about being politically correct. its about respecting your peers. there is plenty of material a GOOD comedian could have pulled together on steve-o. also, everyone is also right that it is a roast… of charlie sheen, not steve-o. talk about his asshole… talk about his voice… talk about his history with drugs… be creative and be cautious of your career. because like it or not, these “over emotional” “over opinionated” people with “no sense of humor” will dictate your level of success- and im pretty sure she just torpedoed her career straight into the ground. enjoy doing all your future shows at a nursing home, amy.

  • http://www.facebook.com/DropDownBeats Chris Hilton

    Yes it was a joke directed at Steve-o and yes people are getting all ruffled over something small, however Amy Schumer did in fact cross a line with this joke not towards the public but towards Steve-O it was writen all over his face after she said it all the roasters knew it so did the audience.  Was it a good joke yes, absolutely it followed the perfect formula and she used great delivery.  But i believe this joke was dropped too soon and if you don’t believe me that it was try having somebody make a joke like that during a live TV broadcast about one of your best friends who died 4 months ago.  Does Amy Schumer need to make a public apology hell no, she does however owe Steve-O a “sorry man no hard feeling k?”.    

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IDBHRNX3BSE2SK547W3NB4SESY Alice

    In the context of a CC Roast, she didn’t even come CLOSE to “the line.”  Hell, I’m not sure there IS a line for a Comedy Central Roast.

    She proved herself a pro – again.  Now, if only she’d cut herself loose from what’s-his-name.

    Of course she crossed the line. It’s messed up and she doesn’t need to apologize but she should feel like sh*t for it and never say things like that again. It wouldn’t have been so bad if she said it and steve o wasn’t there, but he was. The friend of a man who just passed on was there. It was way too soon to say that and it wasn’t funny but tacky. It was in really bad taste and not a funny joke at all. It was a big cheap shot but hey go figure she’s from Long Island…home of the assh*oles.

What would you think if you lost one of your relatives? How would you feel if someone said that they were glad your family member died? Would you think it was so funny then? Amy was trying to be funny but either way you look at it, it was out of line. She did not make the joke towards Ryan Dunn, she made it towards Steve-O. But still, Steve-O has had problems in the past with suicidal tendencies and for someone to joke about how they wish he was dead; WRONG! So wrong! People need to grow up and stop telling other people to die. It just shows how low the moral standards have fallen.

Apparently the word empathy doesn’t exist any more. I think almost everyone in here is the kind of person that thinks it is okay if it isn’t happening to them. But if someone was to mock your mother’s death, child’s death, or friend’s death…you would feel very disrespected and would not want tons of people laughing about it and saying it’s okay.

    Personally, I found her comments on Tyson to be funnier than this one (I was thinking the same thing at the time). However, where anyone from Jackass is concerned, yeah, I must say, I agree. :P

    And a good comedian should never apologize.

    I will never object to HONEST politically incorrect comedy, as all real comedy is politically incorrect (but not all comedy is honest, which is why most comedy today is totally unfunny – one of my reasons for agreeing with her about anyone from Jackass) and thin-skinned people only deserve double doses of satire. HOWEVER, for this roast to be the funniest, most cutting, etc in the history of the roasts should have been easy. Look at what they were dealing with.

    Instead, it seems the people on the dais thought it should be easy too. I love honest satire, but I’ve seen funnier routines from corpses. Come to think of it, I’ve probably written funnier routines FOR corpses.

    And it wasn’t that the concepts for the humor weren’t funny, it’s that the jokes were too undeveloped to be worthy of their potential for that subject. And in the case of the couple actual comedians on the dais, the jokes were unworthy of them. What happened, Jon Lovitz? 

    On the other hand, I forgive those on the dais who wouldn’t know a good joke if it jumped naked out of a cake anyway. You know, Tyson, Jeselnik…

    I thought it was a little over the line. Dunn was a personal friend to SteveO and to even bring up Dunn’s death…it shouldn’t have been said and I found it disrespectful. She could have came up with something else to bash SteveO with instead of using Dunn’s death as leverage to get to insulting SteveO. Yes, Dunn did drive drunk. He died of his own stupidity. But put yourself in the shoes of someone close to him. No matter how someone dies…there are going to be people mourning their loss. It’s just my opinion, please don’t freak out on me because of it.

    Schumer was great, the joke was great & hey, hopefully with all the outrage, the jokes directed at her next go-round won’t all be of the ”Who the hell are you?” variety

    Saw her do a practice run of the set at the Improv and the audience was about 50-50 split with groans and laughter.  Some people get it, some people don’t.

  • Poop on You Amy

    She brought Ryan Dunn into the joke because she knew it would sting the most. If you told me a joke like that about one of my friends who passed I would be laughing as they dragged me away in handcuffs.

    It’s cool though,  she’s fat and ugly and not funny at all. Her Career will be over faster than her fat ass can down a twinkie.

      Having a weight & twinkie-loving problem myself, Poop on You Amy, I could be offended by your fatty joke… However, I’ll choose to overlook it because I totally agree about having to drag me away in handcuffs if she (or anyone else) took a shot like that at me or my best friend… what a bitch.

    Any one who “stars” in Jackass or watches it should just do a favor to humanity and die or kill themselves. Period.

  • Dw4yn3

    The reason the Dunn joke was offensive and the Winehouse one wasn’t, is because Amy Schumer said the Dunn joke to Steve-O’s face, and he was practically best friends with the guy. The Winehouse joke was just random, really. Winehouse’s best friend was there… so it wasn’t the same. The joke wasn’t offensive to Dunn, it was offensive to Steve-O. You don’t make fun of someone’s good friend dying a couple of weeks ago. If there is one thing out of bounds, even in a roast, that would be it. Still, I think the rest of her performance was probably the most well-executed, and she pushed the boundaries of roasting/cruelness while remaining funny the most. So I can forgive her for the fuck up, since I highly doubt she actually meant it with cruel intent. 

  • John C Schlotfelt

    I don’t understand why we’re making a big deal about this when Jeff Dunham actually propagates ignorance and hatred with shows and new hour after new hour on Comedy Central. Amy Schumer makes a little joke with a reference to a drunk driver dying and the internet explodes. I think we may want to take a hard look at our priorities if this is what gets our panties all in a wad.
    And really, Jackass fans, do we have to call Amy all these vile names? It does give some of the commenter on her side a reason to question the intelligence and integrity of the Jackass/Steve-O/Dunn fanbase when you can’t respectfully register your distaste, or even avoid just simply dismissing her because of her gender or your subjective view of her as an unappealing sexual object.

  • Douche-Check

    Look, if you need to be judgmental about drunk drivers, and are only using this controversy to pontificate to others, by all means get in line. The free market has spoken and it made Steve-O more successful than Amy Schumacher. It’s perfectly fine to lash out in envy for not finding a way to be more successful than a guy smart enough to intentionally look like a jackass.

    She’s angry that she has no name recognition (and probably rebelling against daddy for being a liberal, which she is not b/c she’s SO brave in being anti-PC, bitches!!!!). But with SO much material on Steve-O, she could have chosen something MUCH more funny. I guess it would have been less cowardly if she was friends with the guy. Instead she exploited the well-publicized death of a childhood friend for a google trends spike, and offended a lot of folks while doing so, all to “make an impact.” The rest, she’s leaving to lapdogs who bark in her defense. If you think no one should have been offended, I say you slow your roll on your Thought Police Patrol.

    Using this event to look down on Steve-O, Dunn, the success of Jackass, *and* the public in general, while trying to turn around and blame everyone else…well, that’s a rather subservient position to take on Amy Schumacher. Down boi, down.

    • John C Schlotfelt

      I think that a lot of the people arguing on her behalf are advocating for her right to say what she said. I would hope that no one would tell you or me or anyone else what they can or can’t be offended by. However, when you’re offended, I don’t think that gives you carte blanche to tell others that it shouldn’t be on TV or shouldn’t be said. I think, or hope, that this is more about who the arbiter of good taste is (outside of TV advertisers [reality of TV biz], I hope no one is), rather than whether the joke was funny or if she was lashing out because of jealousy (which sounds a bit trumped-up to me).

  • steve

    Ryan Dunn probably would have laughed at that joke.  He didn’t take things too seriously.  She shouldn’t have to apologize to people.  They should get a sense of humor.

  • http://twitter.com/ememessien ememessien

    You can get away with anything as a comic so long as you make it funny.

    Amy Schumer is not funny. Likewise Tracy Morgan, Michael Richards and most other comics who have created controversy over the past few years. 

  • Katrinat

    Over the line. Yeh it’s a roast n she was funny, but bringing up a death in any situation is rude.

    • John C Schlotfelt

      Death is always off limits for you, fine. That’s your line. But it’s not a universal line. Humor is a very common way to grieve and work through difficult situations. I have to imagine that you’ve heard/see a few jokes at the expense of Hitler (or some other “universally” demonized individual) and being killed sooner that you chuckled about. Humor is cathartic, like crying, and a good laugh can be just as cleansing as a good cry. I don’t know why you’d deprice someone that outlet universally, without exception. I can respect your line, and I would recommend that you stick to the cleanest of clean comedy if you can’t deal with a single joke about death, but change the channel or walk out of the club if your sensibilities are offended.
      Ultimately, you’re not the arbiter of what’s “okay” to say, just like I’m not. Schumer didn’t insight a riot (pretty much the only limit on freedom of speech). She may have made a few people groan, made some people frown, maybe even really hurt some feelings, but that’s what happens when over-sensitive people watch roasts. She has a responsibility to be as funny as she can be–which is a totally subjective objective anyway, you don’t have to like it. I don’t personally think it was that funny, but it’s also not at Ryan Dunn’s expense, so I don’t see what all the hullabaloo’s about. It’s well-constructed but maybe a bit weak.

  • guest

    Did any of you forget that Steve-O had a suicidal past? How could you encourage someone to commit suicide? let alone bring up the death of their best friend…

  • Jane

    1. Who the hell is this fat, ugly, dumb blonde bitch?
    2. NONE of her jokes were funny. Okay, her idea of a joke is “OooOOOooo I don’t understand a single word Mike Tyson is saying, oooOoooO” (how about you get your fucking head out of your ass?) So just because you couldn’t get a laugh, does that mean its okay to bring up a TOUCHY SUBJECT such as RYAN’S DEATH to STEVE-O??!
    3. People actually think she’s hot/funny? Ugh. Please, get some class, Amy.

  • Somedude

    To think people ” freaked the fuck out” because you could see on his face that his entire mood shifted you could see the hurt in his eyes… Not because of the joke and it was also the way she said it. There wasn’t really any remorse in the “I’m truly sorry about Ryan Dunn” part

  • MichaelG

    The joke wasn’t even funny… Maybe that’s why the laughs were uncomfortable..

  • Ktbergeron

    First of all, I want to thank the sensible people posting below me. The joke was aimed at Steve-O, and as it was said before me,…it was a perfectly fine roast joke. All night long people talked about waiting for Charlie Sheen to die, and they’re surprised he’s still alive. Amy’s joke was really no different. But yes, people hear what they want and use any excuse to get outraged. I think Steve-O was more hurt by running into Tyson’s fist than he was the joke. People keep complaining that the joke was too soon. Oh, I’m sorry, that joke’s not funny for another 12 days, 13 hours, 57 minutes, and 11 1/2 seconds,….after that, joke all you want,..but right now? Too soon. Listen,…it’s not “too soon” because the joke wasn’t directed towards Dunn,…and even if it was,…there shouldn’t be a “too soon.” She’s a comedian. You can either accept death with a certain degree of humor or you can’t and if you’re THIS easily offended, then the last thing you should watch is a roast.

    It’s not Amy Schumer’s fault Ryan Dunn drove like a drunken, kamikaze missile into a tree. They should be mad at alcohol or physics.

  • mc mike

    i dont understand whats offensive about this joke. she said everybody wishes ryan dunn was ALIVE and that steve-o was dead INSTEAD. so basicaly she saying that everybody likes ryan dunn mroe than steve-o… how is this insulting??? if anything it complimentary to ryan dunn.

  • Anonymous

    Not to mention Steve-O told a joke that was much worse and removed from airing.

  • A7xislifelm

    okay i get the joke wasnt about dunn, but saying that it should have been someone else  is just messed up, why would she say that she wished steve-o died instead? thats just soo mean? whether you like him or not wish that he is dead jokingly or not is just so wrong.  what if she had said it about one of you or one of your family memebers im sure that you wouldnt think its funny.. i mean maybe if it was funny she shouldnt say sorry, but it wasnt even good.

  • Spankymymonkey

    fuck that skank

  • Jeremy

    I was a joke. Nothing more, nothing less. The real issue is that Amy Schumer has zero comedic talent, though.

  • richaad

    I like how most of the people here defending Amy are hiding behind the illogical assumption that jackass fans are “fat virgins living in their parents basements playing D and D.”

    Where is the logic in that? I could also immediately assume that anyone commenting is also a fat virgin living with their parents because they have a hard on for Amy. It holds no merit, you just end up looking like an idiot.

    I personally thought the joke fell into the “too soon” category. Not because I cared for Ryan Dunn, or that I think a joke about him is tasteless. What’s tasteless is making fun of one of Ryan’s best friend’s to his face about his him dying.

    “HAHA YOUR BEST FRIEND DIED DIPSHIT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN YOU LOL”

    I’m all for being politically incorrect humor, freedom of speech, etc, but there’s no way you convince me that Amy was anything but a bit of an overstepping bitch for that one. The Amy Winehouse argument also holds little merit because none of her close friends were there. Steve O wasn’t pissed; he was beyond hurt. He looks fucking depressed when she cracks the joke. I’m actually surprised he rebounded so quickly.

  • The duke

    U guys r all stupid as fuck fighting about something that didn’t happen to u or nothing about u. Ya it was a tasteless joke and ya she took it to far. But also it is a roast and he singed up for it he know wut he got himself into

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Zach-Marshall/100000006339017 Zach Marshall

    Listen you don’t say this to a person who just recently lost a close friend. I don’t care if it was a Roast. You can refer to a dead drug addict or someone he doesn’t know and base that off of your joke. But this was a close friend/co worker of Steve O’s. If you saw his face, you would realize he was very upset she said that. It was the first time i have ever seen him on TV with a frown.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=632532730 Joey Martinez

    Why are people mad at the Ryan Dunn joke and not the Amy Winehouse joke made at the beginning of the roast? 

    • richaad

      It might be a bit different if one of Amy Winehouse’s best friends was also one of the roasters. It’s all contextual. In my mind, you don’t make fun of someone to their face about their best friend dying a few months prior, even if it is a roast.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ANGMPOHOTGE2IAVY5ROBDWLQO4 Will

      Because you’ve never made a mistake ever, right dipshit?

      • guest

        exactly, it was a mistake, people do stupid things, we’re human, thats just us.

        Ryan’s conscience was inhibited by alcohol, im pretty sure if he were concious, he wouldn’t have made the decision he did.
        Amy knew what she was saying when she made that comment about Ryan’s death to Steve. She also wished death upon Steve & MEANT IT
        if Ryan survived the accident but knew he killed someone, I’m pretty sure he would be living in guilt and shame, unlike that souless bitch named Amy…

        Are you serious? People make mistakes? Listen, I’m not one of these hardcore law and order guys who wants to throw everybody in jail for every offense. I think people deserve second chances and I try not to be too judgmental, because I’m very flawed myself. But driving 130 mph (!!!!!) when you’re THAT drunk isn’t an everyday mistake that “we all make” from time to time. You are seriously jeopardizing other people’s lives when you decide to do that.

        That said, my main problem with the joke was that it just wasn’t all that funny or clever. I chuckled at the Winehouse joke because there were several layers to it. The joke wasn’t the fact that she died, but the contrast between her and Sheen (“she was a talent that will be missed,” if I remember his line correctly).

        Wow Michael, you really have a boner for Amy Schumer. Now i know peoples sense of humour are different and we cant always agree on things but look at the facts of her career. She came fourth on last comic standing, FOURTH!!! and then second on reality bites back. close but still a loser! She then went on to do a few shitty things on radio and jimmy fallon etc. Now, this suggests, to me, that she isnt a very good comedian. She may prove me wrong and go on to do great things but i seriously doubt it. Anyway what im trying to say is that because you so clearly love her so much you have a bad sense of humour and are a bit of a dick. I was in no way outraged by what she said but i did however find it a little shady. Telling someone you should of died instead of your friend is harsh even at a roast. I cant blame him for looking shocked or upset. I know I would be pissed. But hats off to him and the rest of the jackass boys for not reacting to it via twitter or anywhere in the media it just shows that they are good sports. And by the way i have it on firm authority that Amy has a c**t like a chewed up pack of hubba bubba and is a total dyke!!! So go cry about that in your mothers basement and quit jerking to photoshopped pictures of her you frigging nerd because someone of her dykey caliber would reject a loner like you!!!!

          You forgot that she has a major gig on Mark Hoppus’ music show on Fuse. Oh please, spare me and your phony, irrational outrage at a joke made at a gig where people mocked Charlie Sheen losing his kids and the fact his family is ashamed of him. You seem a little perturbed…maybe it is because you have not gotten laid in a few years, or is it because you lost another Halo game? If she is a dyke, tell her boyfriend Anthony Jesilnik who was also funny on the roast. Most guys who cannot get any pussy call attractive women “dykes.” If you want to see a dyke, look at your sister, IM a Faggot, I mean, awesome. Now go mutilate yourself you emo faggot.

          • devilsadvocate

            so here’s how I see it; not that you asked for my opinion but it is a public forum and Im never going to meet you so why not share my opinion, right? you started out with a fairly decent argument about why the joke from amy schumer was justified, but as you continued to reply to the comments on this forum your argument became increasingly more benign by insulting and attacking people as opposed to merely standing your ground. I grew up with jackass and therefore am/was upset by the fact that Ryan Dunn died and saw the look on steve-o’s face when the joke was delivered. if one of my best friends died in a fiery, bloody mess, whether it was self inflicted or not,and someone made a joke about it you can bet your ass i would have a problem with it. my guess is that it was a low blow for steve-o, but if he were truly disturbed by the joke the reaction that he had would not have just been a change in facial expression, but rather an outburst of some sort. so, while the joke was a low blow it was also funny and neither side of this argument is wrong for their opinions. As far as, and im paraphrasing so bear with me, being a “loser virgin who hangs out in my parents basement playing d&d and halo”, i can assure you I am nothing of the sort. Im fairly certain, given that my friends and I have seen every jackass episode and movie, that most people who watch the jackass franchise do NOT sit in their basement being weirdo loner creeps. A lot of fans are surfers/skaters/general misfits who probably have done some very similar things as the jackass “characters” that they have seen on t.v. which actually makes them quite active. Now, before i belittle myself by insulting you I will log off. I hope that from my post you have decided to at least consider a difference of opinion, specifically in the area of dead friends, instead of offering blind judgement to both dunn and his fans.

    I understand roast jokes are intended to cross numerous lines. The only thing that got me about the joke was when it cut to Steve-O’s face, he didn’t really look offended. He looked heartbroken. It was Ryan Dunn’s choice to drink and drive, but that doesn’t make it any easier for his friends and family to deal with his loss. 

    Steve-O might have known that the joke was coming but that doesn’t change the possibility that it may have hit harder than he had anticipated. 

    Amy isn’t a great comic anyway, so at least this will give her some more publicity before she fades back into obscurity.

    Schumer’s part (saw her whole bit) was great & totally kidding from a

    Ryan Dunn would’ve laughed or did. It’s a shame it was so widely
    misinterpreted, but now she’ll be more successful from the fall-out –
    I’m guessing. It’s ironic the Jackass crew do more harm to

    apparently most people don’t know that all jokes are read before they actually say them. katt williams made comments  about it on something i was watching, one of his interviews or standup specials. and mentioned it about the flavor flav roast. he was talking about reading the jokes and thinking how racist they were against flavor flav. so steveo knew this was coming because they have the opportunity to read the jokes before hand.

    Rethinking it, I can understand why Jackass fans would be upset.  Before his death back in June of this year, fans were excited about some new projects Dunn was slated to be a part of.  In the eyes of his FANS, Dunn had a bright future in front of him but in reality it was just a tree.

    Give schumer some credit. It had to’ve been hard to get a laugh about Dunn espically since he was just roasted a few months ago. NOW THATS A RYAN DUNN JOKE PEOPLE. CHECK OUT MY TWITTER PAGE FOR MORE LIKE IT.

      It’s nice to know that Ryan Dunn died as he lived—with pieces of a car shoved up his ass.

    I am outraged that people were outraged at her joke. I expect those outraged people to send me an apology… or I will continue to be outraged.  

    Shit, people… no one has the right to go through life without being offended. You’re watching a Charlie Sheen roast, what do you expect, an evening of light banter and mild amusement? A roast is meant to ‘burn’ them, not giving them a lovely tan…

    Steve O, by the way, made a joke that was edited out: the Jackass star made a crack about The Station nightclub fire in 2003, where 100s died and were burned. It was so tasteless it was edited out. But notice the Jackass fans don’t take umbrage to that joke, but find the Amy Schumer joke offensive. The roasters also mocked the deaths of Amy Winehouse and Greg Giraldo…why didn’t Dunn’s fan object to that? I have a reason: most of Ryan Dunn’s fans are fat slob virgins living in their parents’ basement playing D&D and Halo.

    • SpikeVicious

      yeah you have it all figured out don’t you? What if someone cracked a joke like that about a personal tragedy that you had to endure? What if your mother died of cancer and someone cracked a joke like that only three months after her death? You think that because it’s a roast that it’s an excuse? You’re as fucked up as the rest of these idiots who have no respect. You use the guise of a roast to disrespectful. You say that because it’s a roast that there are no lines. Well here’s a wake call dip shit…there are lines but a person’s insightfulness should be enough to show them where those lines are. Amy Schumer is a no name, blond bimbo, bad comic that nobody knows or cares about and her performance last night shows exactly why she’s a nobody. It’s because she tells bad jokes and all of you are fucked up for thinking it’s okay!

        you are cleary the idiot. steve-o knew what he was getting into when he sat down to do that roast. a roast is a mean ass get together to bag on people. if your fucking mother died of cancer you wouldn’t go sit at a roast you retard. its the big whiney babies like you that ruin all the fun. and you’re probably all pissed off because you do sit in your parents basement and play halo and shit. you’re exactly the person us amy fans want to flip out, you make it all worth while.

        • http://twitter.com/FaintAcrobat Petri Jänkälä

          “We all hoped you would have died, instead of your friend who died three months ago” Is not a fucking joke. At a roast you bag on their career and what ever they have done with their life not to say that they want you dead, especially then that dudes friend just died. And to get things straight, Steve-O is a grade-A idiot, Ryan Dunn is a fucking asshole who killed someone, Amy Schumer is a fucking nobody. There are lines you shouldn’t cross even at a roast. What’s worse is that she felt so proud of the joke that she thanked the few people that laughed, most of them booed or otherwise showed their distain for the joke.
          And don’t think I’m just offended by cruel or sick humor. I’m a huge fan of Jimmy Carr who might be one of the sickest fucks in comedy.

          Correct….Ryan Dunn by his own stupidity, drunk drove at a high speed and not only killed himself, but his passenger…in contrast, Amy Winehouse and Greg Giraldo and Jani Lane only harmed themselves with their behavior. Amy Schumer is pretty, funny, sexy and she made a new fan that evening. You fat Jackass loving virgins can go beat off to some no talent stapling his nuts together.

        Spike, you call Amy Schumer names because she is pretty and funny and sloppy fat Jackass fans who live in their parents basement know she would never give you losers the time of day. And the assholes who gave you “likes” are also losers who jerk off to Playboy centerfolds and hate women because they reject your geek selves.

        • RU6504

          Why is it that, in your opinion, all Jackass fans are “fat slobs who live in their parents’ basement playing D&D and Halo all day,”? Jackass is funny, I dont watch it all the time, but it is COMEDY! According to you Amy Schumer is a COMEDIAN! So if your saying that people who watch Jackass (comedy) are fat and live in their parents basement, then your also saying that people who watch Amy Schumer and any other comedian are fat and live in their parents basement too. And I’m sorry but I must have missed the part where she was funny because all I saw was some chick who couldnt even win Last Comic Standing (there is a reason) trying to be funny. If she wanted to make a joke about Steve-O then she should have thought about a funnier way to get a joke across instead of throwing someone who is DEAD into it.

          • Roberts41181

            Your logic makes 0 sense. Hes saying the people that love and defend JACKASS live in there parents basement and play Halo. Not people that like Comedy. She made a joke at a roast.

          I stand by my opinion…and I include also the fans of Tosh.0 as well. Amy Schumer is a female comic who happens to be very funny. Steve O, also from Jackass, not only invoked one dead person, but 100s, when he mocked the people who died in The Station Fire in Rhode Island as “nobodies.” So Steve-O can dish it out but not take it? And Amy said she wished Steve O died and not Ryan Dunn. You fags on the Jackass fanboy pages should get their facts before they attack me or anyone else. Yes, you all are fat virgins who sit in their parents’ basement playing Halo. Now, give me 10 “likes” … or else!

          • RU6504

            And I stand by my opinion that you are a hypocrite. You keep bringing up that Steve-O made that joke about that fire. Yes that is very messed up and it shouldnt have been said but If you are complaining about that then why cant people complain about the low shot that Amy Schumer took. I can personally say that I dont play Halo or D&D or live with my parents but I watch Jackass and other comedy shows, so you have no right to stereotype people who watch that show. Oh and BTW I wasnt approving of Steve-O’s “joke” because both of the jokes were unacceptable. I have an idea, how about both of them stop trying to be funny by talking about death. How could they think that anything like that is funny? You need to grow up and stop thinking that you sound tough by calling people fags.

            I’d just like to point out that true losers sit on these comment pages and argue with anyone who has a different opinion then yourself. Everybody enjoys different things,doesn’t make them a loser or gay, etc. And I’m sure you will read this, and become so angry about what someone you don’t even know said that you will have to find a way to cut me up even though you have no idea who I am. So you should reconsider who you make fun of, and people like you wouldn’t last 26 seconds on a roast before becoming angry and so volatile that you publicly humiliate yourself.
            I thought Amy was cruel, but I must admit she had some good jokes. A roast IS meant to be cruel. I think the main reason why her Dunn joke was so distasteful is because Steve-O was there and they were good friends. The joke about Amy Winehouse was said directly in front of her close friends or family, With the whole public there to see their reactions. Steve-O looked very upset at the mere mention of his friend, as any good friend would. That is why it was a distasteful joke, it’s not funny to practically rub in someone’s face that their friend is dead. Not to mention that the joke wasn’t even funny, but can’t win em all.

            Yes, those standing up for Dunn and his lame Jackass show do sit in their parents’ basement playing Halo and jacking off. This is a roast, imbecile…butthurt does not belong in a roast. They said horrific stuff about Sheen and he took it like a man. You Dunn fans look like you take it up the ass and on the chin. I would not only last 26 seconds, but the entire roast because if you agree to be on a roast, I know to expect the most cruel jokes possible hurled at myself and others. Sheen was also friends with Michael J. Fox and one comedian said God hates Fox….and Sheen grimaced and took it…so should have Steve O, who had no problem joking about a nightclub tragedy where 100s of people burned to death.

        spikevicious, so you’re comparing someone’s mom dying of cancer to a drunken idiot that drove himself and his friend into a tree?

        • Holcy11

          It’s not the way they died mate, it’s what that person meant to someone that counts. If your mum got drunk, drove into a tree and killed herself & her best friend, would you be okay with someone ripping on you in reference to her? it may be a roast, but to joke about the death of a friend only so long after it has happened was just wrong. And yes Ryan had a death wish, but that doesn’t change the fact that Steevo lost one of his best mates 

          • John C Schlotfelt

            So the complaint is about how soon after the “tragedy,” not that a joke was made that in some way referenced said “tragedy”? When is this arbitrary line drawn where it’s acceptable to crack wise about it? It’s a personal boundary. Some comics still aren’t comfortable making jokes related to 9/11/01, but some were on stage within a week parsing out the events. You haven’t gotten to a point where it’s comfortable for you, and that’s a personal process which you’re entitled to work through, but everyone’s notion of “too soon” is different and Amy is obviously past her’s. You should respect her own grieving process, or lack there of. It doesn’t matter how he died–let’s stop arguing about whether he was drunk or who’s mom had cancer (mode of termination is also arbitrary in this situation)–or how Steve-O felt about it, she felt the joke was fair game, it’s well constructed, pretty funny, and is not about Ryan Dunn, it’s a knock at Steve-O, it’s a great deflection and people are missing the point. This is like when Fox News dubbed Common a cop killing-advocate for taking a stanza out of context from a song decrying violence of any sort (including against he police). Trumped up controversies through and through.

    Selective outrage for sure! I can’t believe people chose this to get uptight about. Jeselnik suggested Steve-O continue trying to commit suicide over doing comedy AND inferred that Mike Tyson is a crazy nig**r via referencing a Richard Pryor album. The audience viewers were just too stupid to get it I guess.  Why aren’t women’s rights advocates up in arms over any of the jokes about Sheen beating his girlfriends? Maybe it has something to do with the camera cutting away to Steve-O’s face after Schumer’s punchline and him looking offended. Sorry if he can’t handle it but he DID choose to sit on a dais at a ROAST. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/DropDownBeats Chris Hilton

      True there where many jokes about woman abuse during the night but you fail to remember they continually showed Charlie’s Ex-Wife laughing at every one of those jokes, and Jeselnik’s also a friend of both Steve-O and Tyson where as Amy is not a friend of Steve-O’s.  Point is that after everyone’s Roast they got up hugged it out and knew that it was all in good fun.  Does anybody remember anybody besides Charlie and Kate even touching Amy after her roast no.  I’m not saying she made a wrong choice with the joke but her wording could have been better.    

      • Jeff

        “Jeselnik’s also a friend of both Steve-O and Tyson”… search a few podcast interviews with Jeselnik because according to Jeselnik, on Doug Loves Movies, he did not personally know Tyson or Steve-O personally beforehand.

      Steve-O is trying to break into the stand-up comedy biz on the success of his jackass movies. Well, Steve-O, welcome to the biz. Comics make fun of each other and we often cross the line. As one comic put it, “We cross the line to make sure we still have one.” Some of the stuff I’ve heard comics say to each other after a show is down right shocking. Wishing death on someone is actually rather tame by comparison.

      That’s all good and well that you seem to have that high school angst about you, but let’s be real here, most of us don’t have assburgers. most of us understand that there are some social boundaries that as a member of this society, you are expected to uphold or else be criticized. While the joke wasn’t making fun of Ryan Dunn, I think everyone knows that, but it is still quite a harsh thing to say “hey,your friend that died recently should have been you, LOLOLLOLOL.” Yeah, it’s a roast, but even in UFC you don’t kick the guy in the nuts.

      And to the guy that replied people who get offended by words are weak, lol, yeah, right? Every MMA guy that gets pissed when you call him a bitch is just weak, why don’t you go tell em? What are you? Some kinda SS hitler youth? No, probably just autistic and lonely.

            Yeah you can make fun of dead people but it is still insensitive to bring it up to the deceased close friends. Also you are a dumbass

          • mang is retarded lol

            Mang was probably thinking “Ryan Dunn? It could’ve been me. and we were all thinking why wasn’t it mang?? :/ lmao

          • Insensitive for life

            Your own comment is argument enough to ignore everything you said. Education has nothing to do with sensitivity. In fact many serial killers and sociopaths are educated and highly intelligent people. Secondly you called Amy a stupid bitch. That is not something someone who is sensitive to other people would say and it was intended to hurt not make people laugh. I myself believe sticks and stones will brake my bones but words will never hurt me. Go suck on a tailpipe. You are sad.

        Simply put EMM9087 – you’re an idiot!  You find it harsh that people made jokes in a venue where it is supposed to happen, then you go and insult someone by calling them autistic??  You should be ashamed of yourself, however you probably don’t have the knowhow or morals on how to do so.  You’re pathetic!

        to Emm9087: I find it pathetic that you don’t care about someone, who has a mental disability. You are a pathetic human being. I’m autistic and I’m proud of being autistic. How would you like it if someone you know has a mental disability.

        How about one’s social boundaries being ‘don’t get drunk, get in a car, drive 132 miles an hour and kill two people?’ That seems like a great place to start.
        How about one’s social boundaries being, ‘Don’t defend a dumbass who gets drunk, drives and kills two people?’
        The above actually happened, and pretending like he didn’t or ‘feeling sorry’ for the dumbasses who approved of this behavior (letting him get drive after getting wasted) isn’t going to change that. But go ahead and hide your head in the sand. Fucking dumbass.

      • Right behind you

        It was a roast. THE SOCIAL BOUNDARIES AT A ROAST ARE GETTING OFFENDED IS NOT OK. If you can’t take it don’t go. She did her job and better than most of the comics that night. Your version of a roast is something I would hate to see. You seem to have a retirement home kind of crankiness about you. You are a like an old women complaining about the young whippersnappers and their loud music. If you watch old roasts you would find these new ones are actually quite tame. The whole point of a roast is to have an environment where you are safe to honor each other by telling the best burns you can come up with. Calling an MMA fighter a bitch is perfectly acceptable as long as you are at a roast. I didn’t hear anyone complaining about the Mike Tyson jokes. Lastly anyone who calls her names is a hypocrite and they are not even roasters just bitches. The joke was insensitive and that was the whole point. If you don’t get that then you don’t get comedy. Dead babies, aids, cancer, drugs, the holocaust, etc are all fair game and funny as hell unless it happened to you. Someone will always get offended and that is the funniest part. If we set up social boundaries about comedy then eventually we will be left with only the Will and Grace show and that is a world I don’t want to live in. Never mind I am offended by Will and Grace it should be banned. This is America if you don’t like free speech move to South Korea Bitches! Laughing my way to hell while you all judge your way to heaven.

      Hey, it’s on T.V.  Hate to break it to you, but stuff gets edited out, meaning there are all kinds of rules everywhere.

      So look, if you need to be judgmental about drunk drivers, and are only using this controversy to pontificate to others, by all means get in line. The free market has spoken and it made Steve-O more successful than Amy Schumacher. It’s perfectly fine for her to lash out in envy for not finding a way to be more successful than a guy smart enough to intentionally look like a jackass.

      She’s angry that she has no name recognition. But with SO much material on Steve-O, she could have chosen something MUCH more funny. I guess it would have been less cowardly if she was friends with the guy. Instead she exploited the well-publicized death of a childhood friend for a google trends spike, and offended a lot of folks while doing so, all to “make an impact.” The rest, she’s leaving to lapdogs who bark in her defense. If you think no one should have been offended, I say you slow your roll on your Thought Police Patrol.

      Using this event to look down on Steve-O, Dunn, the success of Jackass, *and* the public in general, while trying to turn around and blame everyone else…well, that’s a rather subservient position to take on Amy Schumacher.

      • jmarcy

        amy schumer just got a sitcom picked up on cbs. she’s not the unknown you think she is.  

      • Jmarcy

        the michael j fox joke was FAR more offensive than the ryan drunken murderer dunn/steve o joke. wheres the outrage there? 

        • Latherton53

          michael j fox isn’t dead. in fact, not only is he not dead he’s still acting and raising money for his cause. there is also hope that maybe in his lifetime there could be a cure. ryan dunn from this point on will never not be dead, whether it was alcohol related or not. that’s where the outrage is.

           

          • dude

            Will never be alive…”never not be dead” is a double negative that makes you sound stupid when your trying to sound smart and put past a plausible argument.  

          • Mandyvillegas

            Shut the fuck up. You understood the point.

            You misspelled “you’re.” :) Incidentally, double negatives are used all the time by fantastic writers—writers who know when it is okay to break the rules. People who adhere dogmatically to the grammar rules they learned in grade school are generally not very good writers.

            Yeah but he has a debilitating disease and Ryan Dunn was a drunk driver who killed himself. wah, wah. Boo hoo some dumbass killed himself. Go chug a forty and jump off a cliff.

    Amy Schumer is and was a G last night. As were Anthony Jeselnik and Patrice O’Neal. Pure professionals.
