Schumer clarified the content of a report in Variety earlier this week about pay parity with Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock - saying she didn't insist on getting paid as much as them.
The 36 year old star clarified what was stated in a report by Variety earlier this week, which claimed that Schumer asked for a higher fee to star in a Netflix stand-up comedy special after learning that Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle were each getting paid $20 million for their shows on the streaming service.
She said that, while she did ask for a pay increase on her original $11 million deal for her ‘The Leather Special’, she did not ask to get paid the same amount as Rock and Chappelle – because they’re the two of greatest comedians ever and deserve more, according to her.

The 35-year-old actress has admitted an older woman, who admitted she engaged in group sex, complemented her and told her she was ''cute'', to which Amy responded by passing over her number.
However the stand up comedian has claimed she misunderstood the entire situation and thought the randy female was actually a jive dancer.

It doesn't really matter that the script for this lively action-comedy is paper thin: teaming up Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn on-screen is a stroke of genius. These two comic actresses have impeccable timing, and throw everything into this madcap jungle adventure. Yes, the dialogue could have been a lot sharper, the story more coherent and the themes more resonant. But as a guilty pleasure, it's a lot of fun.
It opens as Emily (Schumer) decides to continue with her plans to take a luxury holiday in Ecuador, even though she's just split from her boyfriend (Randall Park). Although taking her mother Linda (Hawn) wasn't her first choice. As they settle in at the beach resort, they meet Ruth (Wanda Sykes) and her ex-military friend Barb (Joan Cusack), who warn them about gangs of drug dealers who kidnap tourists. Sure enough, Emily and Linda are grabbed by Colombian criminal Morgado (Oscar Jaenada) and taken to the Amazon, where they escape and go on the run with the help of a rugged but pompous explorer (Christopher Meloni). Meanwhile back in America, Emily's oddball brother (Ike Barinholtz) is pestering a government official (Bashir Salahuddin) to find his missing mother and sister.
Instead of working out a clever story or writing something witty, the filmmakers rely instead on the skills of Schumer and Hawn. This leaves the movie feeling like a series of random set-pieces in which the actresses improvise a lot of goofiness, which is shaped into something vaguely sensible in the edit. The overall narrative is flimsy at best, but there are hilarious moments scattered through every scene, and Schumer and Hawn thankfully underplay most of it.

Emily is left completely broken-hearted when her musician boyfriend breaks up with her in favour of a life of groupies as his band takes off. They were meant to be vacationing to Ecuador together, and she refuses to give up an excuse for fun at this stage in her 30s so Emily decides to take her slightly reluctant mother instead. She also wants to help her mom revisit some of the fun she had in her youth. Unfortunately, they find themselves kidnapped by a mysterious man they meet in a restaurant and only manage to escape with difficulty. By now they are in the middle of nowhere with no knowledge of their wild surroundings and they're definitely starting to wish they'd never come to South America in the first place.

Schumer's father was declared bankrupt when Amy was 12, after he was diagnosed with MS, causing the family to lose the farm she was raised on.
Amy Schumer has surprised her father with a pretty spectacular early Christmas present – she bought back the family’s farm they lost over 20 years ago to bankruptcy.
The 35 year old comedian and Trainwreck actor took to Instagram on Monday (December 19th) to share a screenshot of a FaceTime conversation she had with her father, Gordon, when she announced the heart-warming news to him.
“Today I bought my father’s farm back,” she said. When Schumer was around 12 years old, the family lost their farm when her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. At that point, they moved to Long Island near New York.

Schumer was heckled by a man during her stand-up comedy gig in Stockholm on Wednesday, and her response was amazing.
Amy Schumer shut down a heckler during her stand-up comedy show in Stockholm with a perfect response before having the fan kicked out of the venue this week.
During her gig in the Swedish capital on Wednesday (August 31st), the 35 year old comedian and actress was going through a routine about her white dress when a man in the audience yelled out “Show us your tits!”
Instead of ignoring it, Schumer decided to kick some ass and take names by getting the audience to point the offender out. “Okay wait, I want the guy who just yelled ‘Show us your tits’ to come up here,” she said.

But the Doritos ad overtook them all.
Everyone knows the best thing about the Super Bowl is the commercials and this year, it doesn't disappoint. Featuring all the most unlikely stars you can imagine from Liam Neeson to Steve Harvey, this year's breaks had moments of tears, joy, shock and - namely - abject horror. Thanks Doritos!
Amy Schumer hits the Bud with Seth Rogen
First you got Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen representing Bud Light in all their awkward glory, giving an uplifting power speech about America and the importance of beer. Then there's Liam Neeson goes all sci-fi on us with the LG ad (never has a commercial been so suspenseful), and Kia Optima's walk-in closet commercial (sorry, we mean the 'Walken' closet) - enter Christopher Walken, an advocate for brightly coloured socks. Go figure.
She launched the campaign alongside her second cousin, Senator Chuck Schumer, after the Lafayette theater shooting earlier this year.
Amy Schumer has called for a “public outcry” on gun violence, encouraging people who want to see an end to the kind of mass shootings that make it into national headlines to join the campaign she’s conducting with her cousin, Senator Chuck Schumer.
The 34 year old comedian and actor initially launched the campaign back in August in the aftermath of the deadly shooting that occurred in Lafayette, Louisiana during a day-time screening of her recent movie Trainwreck. During a press conference on Sunday (October 25th) in New York City, she joined forces with her political relative once more to urge Americans to use all possible means to end gun violence, according to the Associated Press.
