If you know anything about Amy Schumer then you’re probably fully aware that she butts her way into anything the way any narcissistic celebrity would but she’s just a whole lot worse about it.
During the Brett Kavanaugh hearings before Congress, Schumer audaciously protested in Washington, DC and when the Metropolitan police threatened her if she wanted to go to jail, she said, “Yes, please,” and was detained.
And Amy Schumer just tried to insert herself into an ongoing debate and got owned by the people it actually affects.
You can tell through Amy Schumer’s standup that she is one of the most narcissistic famous comedians on the planet. Her entire shtick is literally all about self-serving interests and her perception of society through that lens.
Schumer just came out with a new special on Netflix called Growing and it’s all about her pregnancy and sex jokes. It’s one of the most abysmal displays of comedy the world has ever seen.
That’s why she attempts to insert herself into political debates – not only because her uncle is Sen. Chuck Schumer – but because she’s using her political stance against President Trump’s administration to gain popularity from those that share the same ideology.
And she just did it again but it came as a shock when those that it actually does affect want her to bow out of the discussion altogether.
New York service employees are going down the rabbit hole with the state to attempt a minimum wage increase.
In a New York Times article titled, Amy Schumer, Amy Poehler and Other Stars Stand Up for Waitresses. The Response: No, Thanks, it’s revealed that stars are pushing for New York State’s minimum wage law to apply to service industry workers who rely on tips to make a living.
Two of the other stars pushing for the increase areSex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker and Shutter Island star,Michelle Williams. What seemed like a noble cause for celebrities to have the backs of the working class service industry people in New York was met with backlash by those same people.
Maggie Raczynski, a bartender at Outback Steakhouse, said, “The resounding message from servers in New York to these actresses in Hollywood is to just leave us alone. These celebrities have literally no idea. I feel like they need to butt out.”
Raczynski is right because those celebrities live in bubbles that the working class can’t empathize with. Even if some of those celebrities like Poehler, Schumer,and Jessica Parker worked in the industry too at some point in their lives, it’s disingenuous for these multimillionaires to try and speak on behalf of them.
The Outback waitress also pointed out, “An aspiring young actress who has worked as a waitress in a Manhattan restaurant for the last three years said she worried that restaurants would raise menu prices and switch to a nontipping model if they had to pay servers $15 an hour. The actress, who just landed a role in an independent horror film but declined to be identified to avoid upsetting her employer, said she would not continue as a waitress without the chance to earn tips.”
Right. If you really want to help Raczynski, why don’t you just get her an acting job? If all these Hollywood elitists really cared that much then it wouldn’t be about keeping her at bay in her current position, it would be about uplifting her into the next step of her career.
That’s the point. The reason why fast food and many service industry jobs pay is so low is because they are stepping-stones to the next career.
This is disingenuous conjecture.
