Amy Schumer has once agin found herself in a tight situation that looks to paint her in an unfavorable light. Schemer in the past was called out for reportedly stealing material, and now people are starting to call the stand-up out for being a feminist only when it’s fitting. Writer of Refinery 29 went on to question Schumer and declared they will no longer show support for the comedian. The focus of the piece points out race, feminism, celebrity, and more.
But Schumer has risen to fame with her comedic material that includes jokes about her size — and her work sometimes includes uncomfortable rape jokes, too. Schumer is a feminist comedian, but only on her own terms. And that’s a problem. Like Fey, Schumer doesn’t want to be told how to feel — but she doesn’t seem to have a problem deciding how others should react to her “jokes,” either. It’s an unfair luxury, and it’s beyond time we started calling them out on it. Last weekend — after the Metzger scandal, but before the alleged racist tweet emerged — my mom asked me what I thought of Amy Schumer. “I think she’s a bad person, but some of her sketches are really clever,” I told her. She agreed that Schumer was “probably a bad person,” but she thought the name of her book, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, was hilarious. Sadly — and also like Fey — Dunham and Schumer don’t seem to be using the recent controversies to start meaningful conversations about race and gender.
