Amy Schumer seems to be everywhere right now: on TV, in the movies, and on magazine covers. Sure, she's hilarious, but what sets her apart from other comedians?
We think it's because she's actually a great role model, someone viewers can both relate to and admire. Yes, she can be vulgar, shameless, and even offensive, but that's not all she's about. We've fallen for Amy, utterly and completely, and here are 10 reasons why:
1. She won't stand for slut-shaming.
In a recent interview for Amy's new movie Trainwreck, while discussing the short skirts her character wears in the film, one of the interviewers asked her, "Do you have the word, 'skanky' in America?"
Clearly, Amy wasn't going to stand by and let this guy degrade her autobiographical character. As the interviewer backtracks, saying, "I'm not trying to offend you," Amy calmly responds with, "Whatever you're trying to do, you are. That's a rude question." Boom.
