Amy Schumer has clarified her ‘joke’ about how Nicole Kidman sat out at the 2023 US Open after being accused of cyberbullying.
“Okay, the joke I was making was that the way he was posed didn’t look like the way a human sits,” the “Trainwreck” star wrote in an Instagram post Friday.
“I wasn’t making fun of his appearance. Nicole Kidman is stunning and one of the most incredible actresses of all time.
In the accompanying caption, Schumer, 42, expanded on his views.
“I hope everyone is well and taking deep breaths, including all the think pieces written about this. How are you guys? she wrote before seemingly becoming sarcastic.
“To everyone who commented on me. I’m really sorry, I’m not prettier. Please forgive me,” the “I Feel Pretty” star continued. “I apologize. It wasn’t even a slow news day. North Korea and Russia are getting too close for comfort. Deadly storms are sweeping our world and a man has been convicted of rape.
Schumer then urged everyone to “breathe” before saying she forgives people who wrote “hateful things” on her page because she too “likes hot gossip.”[ip].”

The “Inside Amy Schumer” star came under fire earlier this week when she shared a photo of the “Moulin Rouge” actress, 56, watching tennis star Coco Gauff take on Aryna Sabalenka in Saturday’s match .
“This is how humans sit,” she captioned the now-deleted post, implying that Kidman looked robotic.
The Aquaman actress, who wore a pink midi dress to the match, looked stern as she sat in the stands with one hand under her chin while her other arm was under her elbow.
Many fans accused Schumer of being a “mean girl” and a “cyberbully” towards Kidman.
“Bringing others down is always a sign of our own internal insecurities anyway, so critics here should hold up a mirror,” one fan wrote, while another asked: “Are you cyberbullying , Academy Award and Emmy winner Nicole Kidman?”
