Amy Schumer may have made things a little tougher for one fan in Greenville, South Carolina. According to her while in Greenville, she was rushed by a male fan for a video and says that because of the incident she will no longer take pictures with fans. Here’s what she said about the incident via 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.”
In response, the fan who’s name is Leslie Brewer is saying he’s getting death threats over Schumer’s post and says the story currently circulating isn’t true.
Amy Schumer is inciting 4 million people to go after a guy who snagged photos and video of her without her approval — and he says those fans are threatening his life. Leslie Brewer tells TMZ he’s been harassed non-stop since Schumer posted his photo over the weekend and accused him of invading her space and recording without permission while she was jogging in Greenville, SC. Brewer, who is black, claims he’s been called the n-word — and had a fan say, “Shoot him in the face.” Another told Amy, “If we see him we will jump him for you” … and he claims another threatened to burn him and his wife and daughter. He has not reported any threats to police. Leslie says he stopped shooting as soon as Amy asked, and posted video of the incident. Amy says the video is heavily edited and doesn’t show Leslie chasing and yelling at her to stop for a pic.
