Amy Schumer Responds To Flurry Of Joke Stealing Accusations With BLAH Tweet

Amy Schumer woke up today to a shit sandwich.

As our own Paul Sacca reported earlier, three comedians claim that Schumer stole jokes from them that we repackaged for her stand-up special and her hit show Inside Amy Schumer.

From Paul’s post:

Comedian Wendy Liebman sparked the controversy by tweeting out, “Between Amy Schumer doing 1 of my best jokes on her HBO special and this meme of my joke, I’m done with social media.” That tweet was deleted, but it struck a chord with other comedians.

This sparked a windfall effect, with comedian Kathleen Madigan posting the now deleted tweet: ““I have a split screen being released of the disgusting amount of stealing being released tomoro. im done also. Game over @WendyLiebman.”

As if Schumer wasn’t full from her hefty helping of shit sandwich, comedian Tammy Pescatelli went on Twitter tirade that claimed Schumer stole jokes, which have all been deleted.

What has always been amazing to me is that she purports to be a feminist and yet only steals from other female comedians. If we call her on it we are “jealous” or career shamed. Be successful. WE want you to do well, just do it will your own material.BTW she blocked me

Amy gave the barrage a few hours for the dust to settle and instead of going on a  tirade defending herself or saying something outrageously Schumer-like, the A-list comedian played it safe. A LITTLE TOO SAFE FOR MY LIKING.

This is a far cry from the Amy Schumer who exclaimed that her vagina itched at the Golden Globes. Or bashed the Kardashians on SNL. This is a different Amy. A more submissive, less provocative one. One that let’s meddling comedians go on a smear campaign against her because one itsy-bitsy joke was to similar to theirs. Build me a fucking bridge ladies and get the fuck over it.
