Do you ever wonder what you would do if you were suddenly face-to-face with #TheWorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple? You’d probably like to think you’d keep your cool and casually chat up Kanye West about some dope art or bond with Kim Kardashian over Insta filters. But in reality, we’re guessing the gravity of the moment would be too much to stand — literally.
At least, that was the case for Amy Schumer, who took the title of her new movie “Trainwreck” to heart when she literally collapsed in front of Kimye at the Time 100 Gala in New York on Tuesday (April 21).
The prestigious event honored Time’s 100 most influential people in the world, and since Kanye made this year’s cover, he was basically the guest of honor in a room full of super important people. That means a lot of doting admirers were probably singing his praises all night, but not Amy. As we know from her stellar hosting gig at this year’s Movie Awards, she’s someone who likes to crack us up by pushing buttons. So even though she was all glammed up in a fancy evening gown, Amy sacrificed intense rug burn to give us these instantly iconic photos.
Clearly, Amy’s prank didn’t really hit it off with Mr. and Mrs. West. Kim managed a slight smile, but (even given his reputation for interrupting people) stone-cold Kanye was NOT havin’ it. Hmm...maybe Amy’s friendship with his ex Amber Rose has a little something to do with that?
Now you know, for future reference, that even though Kanye once told us we should “bow in the presence of greatness,” he doesn’t mean LITERALLY. Good to know.
In any case, it looks like Kim didn’t mind the awkwardness because she and Amy took this super pretty pic inside the event, and now we’re praying that they randomly become best friends.
