Amy Schumer has made it pretty clear where she stands on politics.
Her fans love it when she bashes conservatives. Conservatives obviously don’t like it too much.
It looks like Schumer is generating some publicity for her new special by mocking gun owners.
Amy Schumer uses her upcoming Netflix premiere The Leather Special to mock “gun nuts” for opposing her gun control efforts.
Schumer began to speak publicly for gun control after John Russell Houser allegedly shot and killed two persons during an airing of Schumer’s Trainwreck in a gun-free theater in Lafayette, Louisiana.
According to The Daily Beast, Schumer talks about gun control in her new special, then hedges her statements by saying “What I learned was, no matter what you say, as soon as you say the word ‘gun,’ what gun nuts hear is, ‘She wants to take all our guns!’”
What Schumer misses is that she has worked with her cousin Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to push expanded background checks because of the shooting, although the shooter passed a background check to get his gun. “Gun nuts” fail to see the sense in pushing to expand what already failed.
Alienating half of the country is never a good look.
We will have to wait and see how these comments affect her Netflix special.
