Amy Schumer refuses to stay out of the limelight.
Her career is on an epic downhill slide right now. The reason is two fold; it’s because she was never talented and because she publicly criticized President Trump.
And now the unfunny “comedian” just shamed white NFL players for not doing this one thing.
For some odd reason, Hollywood believed that Amy Schumer could be a movie star.
After the success of her first movie, Trainwreck, the comedian had a string of box-office disasters like I Feel Pretty and Snatched.
But in order to stay relevant, Schumer led an anti-Brett Kavanaugh protest where she was “arrested.” That word is in quotes because the police asked her if she wanted to be arrested and Schumer politely said, “yes, please.”

It was all for national acclaim.
Now, she made headlines again after her Instagram post where she accused white NFL players of being “complicit” for not kneeling in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick.
She wrote, “Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit?”
It’s clear she doesn’t watch NFL football.
If she did then she would know that there are only a handful of players kneeled or sat for the National Anthem this season.
Carolina Panthers’ safety Eric Reid and Oakland Raiders’ running back Marshawn Lynch are the most popular of them.
Ratings climbed this season because of it too.
Schumer also said she refused to do any Super Bowl commercials because of her fake outrage over a jobless Kaepernick.
She also wrote, “I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all I got.”
That is an arrogant comment.
Who said anybody actually wanted her services for a commercial?
Super Bowl commercials are the most coveted of the year because of all the eyeballs that watch the big game.
Companies spend up to $3.5 million for a 30-second commercial spot. And that doesn’t count the actual cost of the production.
Schumer commented, “Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to hurt them.”
The NFL and advertisers will be just fine without her.
That’s a level of egomaniac that’s immeasurable.
Schumer really believes that because she refuses to do a Super Bowl commercial then it’ll destroy them financially, as if she could do it single-handedly.

The disgraced comedian encouraged the band Maroon 5 into cancelling their upcoming Super Bowl halftime show.
She said, “I think it would be cool if [Maroon 5] backed out of super bowl like [Rihanna] did.”
Pop star Rihanna admitted recently that she turned down the Super Bowl halftime show because of Kaepernick too.
The thing that most of these Kaepernick apologists don’t consider is that he likely doesn’t want to play anymore.
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway claimed that he offered Kaepernick a contract and he turned it down.
There were multiple reports that said he wanted starter quarterback money to be a backup.
Nobody can afford that especially with the cap space situation.
