• Comedian Amy Schumer responds to Steve-O calling her a ‘no-name slut’ (Exclusive)

    Even though it happened in September of last year, our story concerning Amy Schumer’s joke about Steve-O during the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen is still always one of the most-viewed pages on Laughspin. And it looks as though, the story won’t die any time soon.

    First, some background. During the roast, Schumer told the following joke, in reference to Jackass stars Steve-O (who was on the dais) and Ryan Dunn, who died in a drunk driving accident: “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?”

    The joke was clearly about Steve-O (not Dunn), but many took offense to it simply because of the mention of Dunn. Others, rallied behind Schumer. And the day after, Schumer told us there was no need to apologize– after all, it was a roast. And she was joking. Steve-O had remained fairly quiet about the whole thing. But this morning Steve-O guested on The Big J Show at KRSQ Hot 101.9 went off on Schumer– six months later. “Hey everybody, it was a roast, you know, where people say mean things to each other on purpose. That silly little whore was just doing her job,” he said. Ok, nothing terrible. Fair enough. But then Steve-O let’s it fly.

    “When I got to rehab the first thing I learned was the importance of forgiveness. And I forgive Comedy Central for letting that no-name slut on the show in the first place. I have zero respect for that slut, but I’m not mad at her for telling a joke. Tell all the jokes you want, it’s a roast, but don’t be a two-faced slut.”

    You can listen to part of Steve-O’s appearance below.

    So, I asked Schumer what she thought about Steve-O’s comments from this morning. “He seemed upset and as though he felt I had been hypocritical,” she tells Laughspin. “I did ask that his fans stop with the threats of ending my life. But I did not apologize for telling that joke. I don’t see the hypocrisy. I’d like to continue being a comic and alive. Nothing two-faced about that. But I absolutely, from the bottom of my heart, continue to not give a shit about this. I wish him the best luck in his comedy career.”

    “Those jokes were killer,” she said, referencing his jokes from the radio appearance.
