Selena Gomez forced to apologise to Amy Schumer after revealing IVF struggles
Selena Gomez felt the need to clarify her response to Amy Schumer's announcement that she's undergoing IVF.
"I’m praying for you and chris. I’m sorry!" the erstwhile Disney star wrote in the comments of the Instagram post.
However, some fans deemed it to be insensitive, and the Rare singer quickly explained her intentions. "Let me clear that up. I said I’m sorry she’s feeling that way,” she wrote in a follow-up comment. "My mom went through the same thing. It’s hard on women’s heart."
The comedian opened up about her struggles with IVF in a revealing Instagram post, published yesterday.
Schumer took to the photo sharing platform to share a photo of her bruised stomach, revealing that she was one-week into treatment. The 38-year-old even went so far as to share her phone number, and asked people to reach out to her about their own fertility issues.
Amy Schumer speaks about how her husband's Autism diagnosis affected their marriage:
"Feeling really run down and emotional," she captioned the post. "If anyone went through it and if you have any advice or wouldn’t mind sharing your experience with me please do. My number is in my bio. We are freezing my eggs and figuring out what to do to give Gene a sibling."
The comments section was quickly inundated with messages of support. "Oh Amy!! I have no experience to share. Just sending the biggest hug," wrote one Instagram user, while another sympathised "You are amazing. can’t even imagine what you’re going through. sending you all the love and support in the world."
"I appreciate you as a mother, a woman, a public figure, your vulnerability is so powerful," added body positivity activist and model, Tess Holliday.
