And now, thanks to Amy's BFF Rachel Dratch, her interview is going viral. Because, well, just take a look:

People online are obsessed with how she handled the interview.

I didn’t know it was possible to idolize someone more than I already idolize Amy Poehler, but then she gave this interview to the Hollywood Reporter and now I am deceased https://t.co/yzNKfUlsd8

It was definitely a ~mic drop~ moment.

And pretty much everyone who reads it is like, "SAME."

@TheRealDratch Amy's responses are my current mood. Who cares? 💩 is raining from the sky.

Here's more info about that whale Amy was talking about, by the way. And here's further reading about the crisis in Puerto Rico.
