Amy Schumer Posts About a Crazy, Rude Encounter with a Fan, Fan Posts Video Proving It Was Not So Crazy At All! (Video)

We pride ourselves in getting the real story and my entire post took a 180 degree turn after I found the Video from the fan defending himself.

Here is part of my original post with the original post title:



I’m not the biggest Amy Schumer fan, but for those out there that are, they should be disappointed.  The selfie with a celebrity has replaced the autograph and if you are so lucky, to see your favorite celebrity it would suck if you couldn’t at least get in just one photo right?

Insert this guy.  Yep.  Him, with the stupid looking grin on his face.


This guy confronted Amy with a camera and insisted that she take a picture with him.  It was not so much as the picture, but what he said as he tried to get a picture of Schumer, I’m pretty sure, he wouldn’t have tried this if she was a guy.

This is what Amy posted on Instagram,

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.

I feel her pain….only a little.  I think as a celebrity you do give up your right to a certain level of privacy. I also think that the public should be allowed to approach you respectfully and ask for a photo.

That’s where the responsibility ends.

If you say no, then it should be no.  If they want to take a photo of you walking away, then that’s on them.  You should not be violated, and from reading her post, she was definitely violated.

Now because of what this guy did, all Schumer fans will have to be disappointed.  Not sure if it was cool to blast his face on social media but this is Amy learning how to deal with her new found celebrity.

She is not aware of the power of social media and 4 million followers.  They can make this guys life miserable.  Two wrongs don’t make a right.

Then I saw the fan posting a video reply back – we do our homework here at TVST.


So the fans name is Leslie Brewer and as you can imagine, his social accounts have probably been blown up!! He reached out to Fox News Carolina to give his side of the story.  He basically said that Amy’s account of what happened was not accurate.

He said that he was walking down the street and he heard everyone shouting that some celebrity was at the stoplight.  He pulled out his camera and started recording.  As soon as she asked he stopped.  Or it appears that he stopped. Watch.
