Amy Schumer's Netflix special Emergency Contact launched on Tuesday and she did not hold back... especially when it came to roasting Hilaria Baldwin.
During her 51-minute set, the comedian went after Alec Baldwin's wife and reignited the controversy surrounding Hilaria's heritage. Schumer eased into the controversy by noting the couple has a "von Trapp amount of children."
The couple does have seven children together: Carmen-9, Rafael-7, Leonardo-6, Romeo-5, Eduardo-2, María Lucía-2 and Ilaria-8 months.
The Trainwreck star continued:
"And they named them all...very Spanish names."
"And all of this would be fine and beautiful, except that '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."
"My point is that all evidence points to this woman, since she met her husband, has straight up pretended to be from Spain
Schumer then brought Alec's Rust shooting controversy into the mix and explained her reason for doing so:
"My point is that neither of them give a f**k."

Many viewers of the special noted Schumer wasn't lying...
\u201c@PageSix Well she is not wrong.\u201d— Page Six (@Page Six) 1686724333
\u201c@PageSix "Hilaria" fooled me too. I thought she was born in Spain or had family from Spain. Very strange. You can like or appreciate different countries and customs without pretending you're a part of it.\u201d— Page Six (@Page Six) 1686724333

\u201c@DailyWireNews Can\u2019t believe I agree with Amy Schumer\u201d— Daily Wire News (@Daily Wire News) 1686757145
\u201c@KaiseratCB I don't care for either of them but Amy is right.\u201d— Kaiser@Celebitchy (@Kaiser@Celebitchy) 1686750886
\u201c@KaiseratCB Hilaria is not from Spain so Amy is right. This Hilaria lady should stop making a fool of herself faking her accent and lying about her birthplace.\u201d— Kaiser@Celebitchy (@Kaiser@Celebitchy) 1686750886
\u201c@KaiseratCB I\u2019m not a fan of Schumer, but she is 100 % correct, about Baldwin. Such an outrageous scam! If it had been anyone else\u2019s wife, SNL would have had a running skit, for months. She deserves to be dragged!\u201d— Kaiser@Celebitchy (@Kaiser@Celebitchy) 1686750886
But many on social media feel it's time to let this rest.
\u201c@PageSix Welcome to 2019, Amy \ud83d\ude44\u201d— Page Six (@Page Six) 1686724333
\u201c@PageSix Old news\u201d— Page Six (@Page Six) 1686674029
\u201c@KaiseratCB Who cares where Hilaria wants to be from. Amy Schumer should just mind her business.\u201d— Kaiser@Celebitchy (@Kaiser@Celebitchy) 1686750886
Hilaria is aware yet unapologetic about the controversy surrounding her heritage.
She addressed it in a 2020 Instagram video:
"There's nothing wrong with me, and I'm not going to apologize for the amount of time that I spent in two countries and I'm not going to apologize for the fact that I speak two languages and I'm not going to apologize for the fact that I have two versions of my name."
