Amy Schumer is pretty well known these days. The comedian and cousin of Senator Chuck Schumer has a bit of drama on her hands though.
It appears that she has been stealing jokes. The video below is a bit of an indictment of Schumer. And the other comedians whose jokes are almost mimicked aren’t happy about it, as the Daily Caller reports.
Wendy Liebman, Tammy Pescatelli and Kathleen Madigan sent out a series of tweets this week accusing the 34-year-old of taking their jokes and passing them off as her own.
“Between Amy Schumer doing 1 of my best jokes on her HBO special and this meme of my joke, I’m done with social media,” Liebman wrote on Twitter, then deleted it.
“What has always been amazing to me is that she purports to be a feminist and yet only steals from other female comedians,” Pescatelli tweeted. “If we call her on it we are ‘jealous’ or career shamed. Be successful. WE want you to do well, just do it will your own material.”
Schumer is trying to clear her name. She says she wouldn’t steal jokes and even offers to try to prove that. “Because I would never, ever do that and I never have,” she said, “And I’m literally going to take a polygraph test and put it on my show this season.”
Watch the video below. Do you think she stole these jokes? Let us know what you think.
