One angry social media user call the comedienne a ‘rude b***h,’ adding, ‘Taking him off his game when he just started and had family there.’
Amy Schumer has landed in hot water for interrupting an amateur comedian’s set to practice for her upcoming hosting stint on “Saturday Night Live“. Schumer made a surprise appearance at Caroline comedy club in New York on Tuesday night, May 8 and tried to get on stage during Brendan Sagalow’s performance.
In a since-deleted video posted on the club’s Instagram page, Schumer could be heard saying, “Brendan! It’s Amy Schumer, can I do 10 minutes really quick?” Sagalow didn’t seem to mind as he replied to her, “Of course,” before welcoming her on the stage.
According to Page Six, the “I Feel Pretty” actress asked the manager if she could get up on stage. When the manager declined her request because Brendan “has just gotten up” and “was doing a long set,” she replied, “But, I’m Amy Schumer!”
She didn’t give up after that as she approached another comedian who was scheduled to perform. Even though the comedian had explained to her that the set was a big deal for Sagalow, she still “barged on stage.” A source told the site, “It was pretty f***ed up, but I think it was pretty amazing.”
After hearing the news, many took to social media to slam the “Trainwreck” actress. “She’s a rude b***h. Selfish. Taking him off his game when he just started and had family there,” one Instagram user wrote, another called her “totally rude!” adding, “Can’t stand her! No class!”
“Interrupting an up-and-coming comedians ask during his headlining performance? Wow! What a class act she is!” one other user noted. Another said, “So cringy. I can’t believe the balls on this woman.” Other users wrote similar comments such as “f**k that pig,” “What an entitled c**t” and “So rude.”
Amy has yet to respond to the backlash.
