Why did Amy Schumer prank Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the red carpet? Let’s let Schumer explain…

Last month, Schumer, Kardashian and West were all picked to be on TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” of the year list. To celebrate, there was a TIME 100 Gala that the trio all attended.

While on the red carpet, Schumer threw herself on the ground in front of Kardashian and West, causing everyone to laugh. Well, everyone expect for Kimye.

The 34-year-old comedian just went on The Graham Norton Show and talked about the red carpet prank. She revealed that she was doing interviews on the red carpet and the reporters lost interest in her when Kardashian and West arrived.

Schumer explained, “All the reporters were going crazy, and it was Kim and Kanye, just standing there, just like owning it just like being short and important. And I just couldn’t help… I think falling is the funniest thing, so I just took a dive in front of them and pretended like I fell.”
