‘But what got your goat was me saying that Nicole kidmans pose was not human like (sic).’

She added: ‘Breathe y’all. To the people who write hateful things below I forgive you as a mother, a woman and most importantly as someone who also likes hot goss. Have a good weekend.’

Fans of the comedian flocked to the comments to support her, with one writing simply: ‘In your defense Amy, it was a weird pose.’

Amy had previously sarcastically apologised for the comment, saying she would be ‘asking the cast of That 70s Show to write letters advocating for my forgiveness.’ referencing Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis writing character letters for convicted rapist Danny Masterson.

This also did not go down well online, with critics slamming her post as ‘inappropriate and unfunny.’
