Amy Schumer had the perfect response to a troll who photoshopped her face to be 'Insta ready'
If there's one thing you never want to do, it's mock a comedian.
Seriously, these are people who are professionally quick-witted and smart, ready with a comeback or cool retort for every occasion, and who routinely eat hecklers for breakfast. Most of them could probably give you a stern dressing-down in front of an audience.
So, giving them time to think of something even more brutal when they're on the internet is a tactical error to say the least.
One person who sure as hell doesn't pull any punches is comedian Amy Schumer. Now, to be honest Amy's never been someone who shies away from speaking her mind, or taking someone down a peg when they get a bit lippy. In fact, she's recently been sharing the realities of her pregnancy, posting a graphic video of herself vomiting after a stand-up show on Instagram.
This week, Amy shared a picture on her Instagram account, which showed that someone on the internet had photoshopped a picture of her face to make her look 'Insta-ready.'
Having seen the image, Amy took to Instagram and wrote: "Woof this is not good for our culture. I like how I look and don't want to look like a carbon copy of this one type woman you feel is the best way to look."
Man, that is a deep burn all right!
Recently, the Trainwreck star was forced to cancel the Texas leg of her new comedy tour, as a result of an illness brought on by her pregnancy. Schumer shared a picture of herself in a hospital bed on an IV drip, captioning the post: "Texas I am so deeply sorry. I have been really looking forward to these shows. I have to reschedule. I am in the hospital. I'm fine."
She added: "Baby's fine but everyone who says the second trimester is better is nor telling the full story. I have been even more ill this trimester. I have hyperemesis and it blows. Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bullsh*t! Sending so much love to the doctors and nurses taking great care of me and Tati! They are cool as hell! And Texas I am really really sorry and I'll be out of there as soon as I'm better. [sic]"
However, after this distressing incident, Amy returned to posting again, and updated her followers to tell them all that she's now resuming her stand-up comedy tour.
She wrote: "I’m feeling a little better and wanted to make up these dates that aren’t too far from home. Can’t wait to see you guys! Shows coming up in Toronto 1/31, Philly 2/1, Baltimore 2/2. Get your tickets now!"
So there you have it: next time you want to edit a picture of Amy Schumer without her consent, prepare to be smacked down.
