Amy Schumer Refuses Super Bowl Ads. Are You Sad?

Amy Schumer, she of the potty mouth and the muffin face, won’t do advertising for the next Super Bowl. She claims it’s because of the “endless racism people of color face,” or something. Moreover, the singer Rihanna has declined to perform at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime to show support for Colin Kaepernick, so Schumer had to board that PC train with her.

Can’t miss out on the attention, you know!

Amy Schumer bared her soul at Instagram, just like every other woke celebrity does. Thankfully, it was just her soul and not the rest of her:

“Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit?”

Police brutality and murders? Perhaps Amy Schumer should speak with journalist Jamal Khashoggi about brutality. Oh, wait. . .

Here’s Schumer’s full comments at Instagram. Never mind that the contents of that ginormous wine glass look like it was taken from a toilet bowl — Schumer was on a roll.

Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit? I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country. Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?

On top of that, Amy Schumer is now also trying to shame the band Maroon 5 into refusing to perform during halftime:

“I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl. . .”

Because the self-righteous Schumer is making such a huge sacrifice!

“I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got.”

Do you care? Does anyone care?

Do you remember the last time that Amy Schumer appeared in a Super Bowl ad?

It was in 2016, when she appeared in this politically charged “Bud Light Party” spot with actor Seth Rogen.

Were you laughing?

Now I know that lots of us enjoy watching the Super Bowl ads just about as much as we like watching the game. That is, of course, if your team isn’t playing. My Kansas City Chiefs haven’t been to a Super Bowl since 1970, so the advertisements have been highlights for me. (Although the Chiefs are pretty hot this year, she says with fingers crossed.)

But Ms. Schumer must lack the self-awareness gene. Doesn’t it occur to her that the last time she was in one of these big ads was over two years ago? And that it doesn’t seem like advertising executives are burning up her agent’s cell phone trying to get her to sign for an ad?

Guess what, Amy. No one will miss you. And frankly, I won’t miss Rihanna, either. The last halftime show I really wanted to watch featured Bruce Springsteen (don’t hate me). And I’m sure that Bud and Doritos and GEICO will be spending their big bucks on clever advertising that doesn’t involve Amy Schumer.

    What’s that phrase? “All talk, no hat.”

  • John says:

    People still watch the NFL?

    Maybe this will spur formation of a new #MeToo movement – unfunny comics who won’t show up to hector us: In addition to Amy, I nominate Kathy Griffin, Jim Carey, and Seth Rogen. Also, other woke unentertainers, including Taylor Swift (she really is a little past her sell by date for another teen angst song). I’m certain that list can be substantially expanded to include many who We-Won’t-Miss-You-When-You’re-Gone.
