Amy Schumer’s ‘Emergency Contact’ takes a dig at the 2020 headlines. Amy Schumer has a unique way of communicating her opinions through comedy, and in her most recent Netflix stand-up special, Emergency Contact, she does just that. The comedienne-actor is not afraid to make subtle fun of the mystery that made headlines back in 2020.

In an interview, the actress also mentioned that she had mentally prepared herself for the criticism that, no doubt, would come after the stand-up special premiered on the streaming service, but that didn’t stop her from keeping her mouth shut. Although everyone has noticed Schumer’s jab at actor Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Baldwin, she also laments the poor state of women’s health care in America.

She explains that she met Baldwin years ago backstage at Saturday Night Live when Baldwin told her that she was from “’ from España,’ (with) a very thick Spanish accent.” Schumer revealed that Alec Baldwin attempted to introduce them to each other she saw her and politely declined and explained, “I’m trying to hang on to my self-esteem, OK. She is a tiny, Disney princess, and I look like Ben Roethlisberger from most angles.”

Schumer further said that they have a von Trapp number of children, and the couple has named their children with very Spanish names like Jamón, Croqueta, and Flamenco, adding that all of this would be fine and beautiful if she was actually from España.

Schumer then goes on to tell the audience, “‘Hilaria from España’ is actually Hillary from Boston. This woman is in no way Spanish. Her parents are not from Spain. No one in her life is from Spain. You’re going, ‘What?!’ Did you think I was just doing a racist Spanish impression?”

Amy Schumer goes into explaining her theory about Hilaria Baldwin’s ‘España decent

The actress, who had already made the audience giggle with her interpretation of Baldwin’s claim that she was of Spanish descent, presented her theory on how Baldwin might have come to that conclusion.

Schumer said, “So, I’m not trying to bully a sociopath. I have a point, OK? I think what happened was she went to Spain. And I’ve been lucky enough to go to Spain. Some of you have been. It’s great, right? Don’t you love it? I loved it, too. But Hillary from Boston … loooved it!” Schumer reverts to the Spanish accent before declaring “I am going to be from it!”

I Feel Pretty actress says that her point is that all the evidence points that Baldwin, since meeting her husband, has straight up pretended to be from Spain and her husband shot someone (Alec Baldwin was accused of shooting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and he has continued to deny the accusations. Charges were dropped in April. ). She continued that neither of them care about the other’s transgressions in their marriage cared, so her advice to people would be to find someone who can stand you.
