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”
