Amy Schumer is a nut case.
The female comedian said that she would move to Spain if President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in November – but she’s still here.
Now the delusional comedian just demanded more money from Netflix and you’ll be rolling on the floor laughing when you find out why.
Schumer was coming off a successful outing with the summer hit Trainwreck a couple years ago when she released her “The Leather Special” on Netflix—where she sports a leather outfit during her routine. Apparently it was supposed to be funny.
But her comedy special was painfully unfunny.
So she whined on Instagram that it was her “alt-right” critics who were responsible for her poor Netflix ratings.
I am so proud of my special and grateful to all the people spreading love on line about it. I am the first female comic who is selling out arenas all over the world and so grateful for that. I am embarrassed for the “journalists” who report on trolls activities as if it’s news. It’s indicative of administration right now. Anyone who reported that “viewers aren’t happy” with my special, it would have been cool if you did a moment of research before posting. The alt right organized trolls attack everything I do. Read the @splitsider article. They organize to get my ratings down. Meeting in sub Reddit rooms. They tried on my book and movies and tv show And I want to thank them. It makes me feel so powerful and dangerous and brave. It reminds me what I’m saying is effective and bring more interest to my work and their obsession with me keeps me going. I am only alarmed by the people printing their organized trolling as “news” this is what the current administration wants. So this post has nothing against the trolls. I thank you trolls so much. It fills me with hope and power to see you all furiously posting so as always accuse me of whatever lies you want. Call me a whale. Call me a thief and I will continue to rise and fight and lead. I know who I am. I am strong and beautiful and will use my voice my whole time on this earth. Journalists do better it’s embarrassing. Trolls see you on the next one! 😘😘😘
But she’s wrong, it was just genuinely unfunny. And she was overpaid $11 million for the drivel she spewed—especially considering she’s notorious for stealing jokes.
And upon hearing that legendary comics Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle were reportedly paid an astounding $20 million for each of their stand-ups, she demanded more money from Netflix.
No serious observer of comedy believes Amy Schumer is anywhere close to being in the same league as them.
Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock are comedic legends and have been since the 1990’s, and she really believes she’s as funny as they are?! Now that is funny.
That’s like a D-league basketball player asking for Steph Curry money.
As Keely McCann aptly pointed out on Twitter:
This is not an “equal pay” issue. This is a “you’re not funny like them” issue. https://t.co/2jR6nLgVod

If she wants that kind of money, she better step up her game—or at least steal some funnier jokes.
