Amy Schumer Bans Fan Selfies After Man Scares Her While Demanding a Picture

Fans looking to take a photo with Amy Schumer are out of luck.


After the “Trainwreck” star was scared by a fan in South Carolina, she took to Instagram Saturday to share her new no-picture policy, along with a photo of the man.

“This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared the s— 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.”

The run-in occurred Saturday in Greenville, where the comedian performed Friday night.

“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,” she wrote.

Fortunately, the 34-year-old’s Southern stop wasn’t all bad.

The comic and writer shared a video from her Greenville stop, set to Aliyah’s “Are You That Somebody,” where she’s seen eating lobster and posing with some less-intrusive fans.

She later thanked her fans for their support and walked back her outright ban on fan photos, writing on Twitter, “I’ll still take pictures with nice people when I choose to if it’s a good time for that.

“But I don’t owe you anything,” she wrote. “So don’t take if I say no.”

Later in the day, she posted of picture of herself with a horse and the caption, “Day turned around with Harley” and added another pic on the same theme, captioned: “F the haters! Much love to the lovers.”
