    The Life &Beth star said, "OK. Well, I would like to say, I haven't personally been on Twitter. I've had my assistant do it, just so I can remain alive and not kill myself. And also, that joke was written by Suli McCullough. But I thank you guys, always, for making sure that I don't start thievery."

    The joke about Leonardo DiCaprio was made during the opening monologue by Amy, she said, "He has done so much to fight climate change and leave behind a cleaner, greener planet for his girlfriends." Soon after the live telecast, fans gathered on social media, to accuse Amy of stealing the joke from a viral tweet posted in December 2021.

    The tweet read, "Leonardo DiCaprio is so passionate about climate change because he wants to leave a better word for his girlfriends."

    Schumer on the show also revealed that she recently did a lie-detector test with Vanity Fair that proved she was not a joke thief. "They asked me, thank God, 'Have you ever stolen a joke?' and I said no, and it was 'that's true.'"

    She added, "So, everybody just chill. It's crazy. I'm funny enough, I don't need to steal s---."
