Amy Schumer posted a picture of a man who, she says, scared her when he shoved a camera in her face and insisted on taking her picture, and would not take ‘no’ for an answer this past weekend, in Greenville, S. Carolina. In her Instagram post, Amy said that because of this incident, she would no longer take pictures with fans (she later tweeted that she would continue to pose for pics with fans, but at a time that was ‘good for her’ and for fans to not force her).
This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared the shit out of me. Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said ” no it’s America and we paid for you” this was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid. Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no. I will not take picture with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville.
Thanks for the kind words and support. I know there are bigger problems in the world. But this was not right pic.twitter.com/8fqoIm7sHC
