Under normal circumstances I’d applaud Amy Schumer for taking a principled stand against the NFL by refusing to do any Super Bowl commercials this year and discouraging musicians from playing the halftime show. Luckily I can save my energy. Amy’s got the applause covered herself, and doesn’t need the help. Amy recently posted a note on Instagram congratulating herself for stickin’ it to the NFL with a single IG post in which she encouraged Maroon 5 to back out of the SB gig. In it she cites her own courage and moral conviction as the reason the NFL hasn’t yet signed a second act. Amy did that you guys.
Here’s Amy’s note. We can’t see the first sentence but it was probably something along the lines of “I could have just sat here and ate my rice”.
This obviously means a lot to Amy because she took the time to make this post almost legible. Doing everything she can means typing some shit out at 1:00 AM after checking her mentions and finding out that Brad at WKYC in Poughkeepsie said she should mind her own business. That said, I do appreciate that Amy’s putting herself out there. Gloria Steinem walked so Amy could run a victory lap.
