With the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just days away, fans are preparing to watch the worldwide spectacle. But not everyone is buying into the hoopla surrounding the event — in fact, a recent YouGov poll found that two-thirds of Brits couldn’t care less about the upcoming wedding.
Amy Schumer fits into that category too. While chatting with the Australian radio show Fitzy and Wippa this week, the comedian let her true feelings shine as she talked about Markle’s big day, saying it will “suck” because it’s so public.
“This poor girl,” Schumer said. “Your wedding, everyone says it’s your day. It’s your day. She’s like, no it’s not. She has to meet all these foreign dignitaries she’s never met before, there’s so much pressure. Can you imagine having a worse wedding?”
She added: “That would suck. Her girls from high school aren’t going to be there. It’s like a parade, it’s like Westminster Dog Show.”
Clearly Schumer, who had a very private wedding in February, is not a fan of the public affair. Critics, however, did not appreciate the actress’s candor. They’re asking, did she have to be so mean?
I dont really care about the royal wedding myself but Amy Schumer is a pig. https://t.co/OJjwLF28Zn

Amy Schumer needs to 1 – give up on being funny & 2 – stop showing jealousy over NOT getting invite to royal wedding. Schumer claims no dad or friends = wedding will suck & it will be parade like westminster dog show…U R not funny Amy, give it up!

Worth nothing! If you can’t say anything positive about the wedding say nothing. Plain jealous.

Schumer has not responded to the backlash.
