Did Amy Schumer ‘Cyberbully’ A Fan Because Of A Selfie?
Amy Schumer hated it when fans cannot respect her decision to say no to a picture with her. But did she have to post a picture of one fan on her Instagram and blast him for being ‘rude? The fan defended himself and said the comedienne went overboard with her reaction to the incident.Advertisement
‘ Amy Schumer, the Trainwreck actress ranted on her Instagram, which had around 4 million followers that a fan scared her and disrepected her all because he wanted a picture with her. Posing a picture of the said “dude,” Schumer said that the fan made her want to not take picture with any fan from now on.
“This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared the s–t out of me. Put a camera in my face,” Schumer wrote. “I asked him to stop and he said, ‘No, it’s America and we paid for you.’ This was in front of his daughter,” she continued. “I was saying ‘stop’ and ‘no.’ Great message to your kid. Yes, legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no. I will not take [pictures] with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville.”
While Schumer’s version of events can support her feelings of irritation and the blast on her Instagram, the fan himself who irritated the famous personality said that he is the one currently being bullied. He said that he apologized to the comedienne when it was clear that he got to her nerves. He even has an Instagram video as evidence.
In Brewer’s video, a dressed-down Schumer calmly says, “That’s rude. Can you delete that?” Brewer then apologizes and gave a thumbs up, implying he understood and all is well. The video then cuts to Brewer alone, wherein he tells the camera “And then she got mad at me.”
Brewer also revealed that he was not really angling for a selfie. He told FOX Carolina that a group of pedestrians shouted that Schumer was at a stoplight and that he got out his phone just to Insagram the encounter. He however stopped when the comedienne asked. “I did it in a non-threatening way,” Brewer says. “She says I got all up in her face, and it was completely different from the video.”
He added that he was surprised that Schumer went back to him after she already walked away and then asked to take a photo of him for her own Instagram account. He went with it but got the surprise of his life when Schumer’s rant captioning his picture surfaced.
“It was literally five minutes and it was like, everywhere,” Brewer said. He said he now regrets taking a picture of the actress. However more importantly, he is disgusted with her reaction. “You’re a celebrity,” he said. “I understand you want to blast me but that’s petty, that’s beneath you.”
Schumer later tweeted to clarify that she is okay with taking selfies with fans as long as they are nice and that she is in the mood. When she says no though, it means no.
She also told People that “I am grateful to people who like my work and support me but not the ones who think that behaviour is ok.” Page Six however reported that this is not a spur-of-the-moment thing. Schumer hated taking photos with fans even before she got more famous.
