We have a kind of love/hate relationship with Amy Schumer. I personally love whenever she opens her mouth and sharts stupidity, or is cast in a role which is perfectly stupid for her (see SHIELD YOUR EYES! Amy Schumer to Star in Live Action ‘Barbie’ Movie and Pompous Amy Schumer Tries Shaming You into Voting Hillary). So when there’s is yet another video compilation of Amy Schumer stealing jokes? We’ve got you covered in ways Amy would never cover herself. Yes, that’s a slut-shaming dig.
Ms. Schumer, how do you respond?
It’s the holiday season, so let’s be charitable. Some of this – a lot of this – could very well be an utter lack of creative on behalf of Amy or her staff of pastry pushers. But when it’s constantly rapped down people’s throats how allegedly great you are? Or how you’re allegedly silencing all the haters when it comes to women in comedy? You may want to actually have some of your own jokes.
Also, if you’re hoping to avoid ridicule for your clear lack of creativity, lobbed both by comedians and those of us who find your message “off-putting” maybe shield yourself. Go out of your way to check your writers aren’t lifting jokes from more original comedians who aren’t being pushed by feminism, the media, or your cousin Senator Chuck-e Cheese Schumer.
Because here’s a bigger point: Amy is privileged. She’s like a prized glazed donut that launched a thousand pink pastry boxes. Saving office Friday meetings across the country. If any other comedian had been so accused? Their career would likely be over, no? But because Amy is the face of modern feminism (bloat and all), because she’s an active liberal pushing basic talking points, she’s protected. It’s okay for her to lift a few jokes (she’s certainly not lifting weights), because she’s working for The Cause. While making us wish we could blind ourselves. Here, gimme that fork, I need to scrape my eyes out.
If a conservative comedian had been so accused of stealing this many jokes, where do you think he or she would be?
