Amy Schumer Responds to Teenage Film Critic's Sexist Tweet

Amy Schumer Responds to Teenage Film Critic's Sexist Tweet

Amy Schumer took a photo with teenage film critic Jackson Murphy, also known as LightsCameraJackson, at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday (January 17), and he made a very sexist remark in the pic he shared with his followers.

“Spent the night with @amyschumer. Certainly not the first guy to write that,” the teen film critic wrote on his Twitter account.

Amy responded to him later, writing, “I get it. Cause I’m a whore? Glad I took a photo with you. Hi to your dad.” Jackson has since deleted the tweet, and apologized.

“@amyschumer I truly apologize. Thought you’d like the joke. I should leave the comedy to you! Thanks for the photo. Glad you won last night!” he wrote. “I truly apologize for the tweet I posted earlier. I’m not a comedian and it wasn’t funny. @amyschumer”

    she got offended by that? considering everything she’s said?

  • Alphonse

    Bu bu bu but Amy, people laughed therefore it must be funny as you yourself said when asked why you make racist jokes about South American people??? Confused…or is it not comedy when it applies to you?

  • VanityInsecurity

    She only gets offended when people upstage her in the comedy.. stfu Amy

  • j b

    The way that she herself jokes about being a whore and acts like a whore it is surprising she was offended by that.

  • Grimes

    Now I understand why people really hate her.

  • Alex33016

    Hello…I JUST started liking her and now I find her annoying as F. Really? She talks about all the guys she has slept with and talks about her sex life in EVERYTHING she does. So, the kid points that out and she is OFFENDED…What. The. Fu*k? What a hypocrite! I actually thought it was pretty funny. She must have been drunk or high to take offense to that.

  • FerCat

    Stop hanging out with JLaw. She’s starting to be a bad influence.

  • Belmont12

    I’m starting to get why people dislike Amy- she gets offended by the simplest things but all she does is make fun of people and be raunchy. She has suggestive photos of herself as well- she needs to appologize

  • FrenchGirl

    I have the same-feeling with Amy’s outrage than with JLaw’s outrage( with the foreigner journalist) .She is condescending about something with no importance

  • xica

    Now why does she get offended when she played a character about herself? Does she have self respect or it was everything about the money? Sorry

  • Wendy

    Oh okay, so she can say whatever she wants and people shouldn’t get offended, but she’ll get offended by the littlest thing apparently.

    His joke actually was funny, and it wasn’t even that bad. She needs let go of her ego, she’s becoming very unlikable.

    Not to mention all the hate that poor kid probably got from her fans.

    TAKE A JOKE, AMY.

  • Casey C

    given how just about every single one of her skits and about 98% of her standup revolves around calling herself a slut, I don’t understand her reaction.

  • plez

    Trainwreck which Amy wrote is about magazine writer “Amy (Amy Schumer) has made promiscuity her credo” She was told to write a character based on her comedy routine. So why would Amy be so upset what the kid wrote.

  • Dxn

    so because she shares her sex life for jokes it gives everyone the right to call her a whore? interesting…

  • Jenny from the flop

    Amy schummer is officially no longer funny. It all started when she began to hang out with brat jennifer lawrence

  • brutallyhonest

    I cannot believe people are giving her grief for this. She can own her sexuality and speak about it, because it’s HER life. Someone, a complete stranger, making that type of joke was belittling, and then, after he was called out, he acted all apologetic.

    GOOD ON YOU, AMY.

  • mark

    The kid / guy / whatever made a lame joke / remark. Nevertheless, I found her response in calling him “honey” was even lamer.

  • Vault101

    Yeah, actually everyone in America has the right to call her a whore. You may have heard of this hip new thing called the First Amendment. Stay with me now…it protects, among other things, freedom of…wait for it…SPEECH!! Amazing!

  • The Absolute Truth

    I think Amy hilarious. Jackson was also funny.

  • Phil the Donahue

    I think you’re confusing hate speech with freedom of speech. The first amendment didn’t say you have the right to be an ahole

  • Vault101

    Oh, right, because whores are a protected class? Apparently you don’t understand what hate speech is, so I’ll help you out with the actual legal definition:

    “In law, hate speech is any speech, gesture or conduct, writing, or display which is forbidden because it may incite violence or prejudicial action against or by a protected individual or group, or because it disparages or intimidates a protected individual or group.”

    And no, you don’t get to change the definition to suit your argument. Sorry about that.

  • Dxn

    so much hate boy, you must be cool at parties! im not even from america to care about your “First Amendment” haha.. have a nice day!

  • Vault101

    First of all, you don’t know me, so you couldn’t possibly comment on whether or not I am fun at parties. Nothing about what I said was even angry. Don’t be upset because you had no idea what you were talking about. Second, Amy, myself AND the kid are all from America, so it is completely relevant, asshat. First Amendment in quotes? No, you don’t have to quote me on that. It is a part of our Constitution. Finally, 2001 called and it wants its profile picture back. Seriously, did you take that with a fucking flip phone? How retro!

  • Frank and beans

    Is she not the one who cried about censoring comedy lol. If she does want people to make jokes based on what she says, she should stop talking about getting fingered in taxi’s.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Cool, then I have the right to call you a dick-headed douche which you clearly are.
    If someone called a female I know a whore, I would have them in a chokehold faster than you can spell your own name. There ya go, the word whore incited violence; ergo, it’s hate speech.

  • Vault101

    Just because you’re a sperglord who can’t control their shit after being proved wrong doesn’t make it hate speech. Your use of ad hominem, virtue signaling and obscenities only further proves my point. You didn’t refute anything. Apparently you didn’t even read the ACTUAL definition of hate speech. So, even if some psycho jackwagon is incited to violence, IF THEY AREN’T PART OF THE PROTECTED GROUP, it isn’t hate speech. Good job, retard.
