Find Out Why People Are Throwing an #AmySchumerGottaGoParty on Twitter
At this point, it may not be surprising that people are mad at Amy Schumer, but she seems hell-bent on giving us a reason to talk. Most recently it was her controversial interview with Lena Dunham and her (deleted but caught in a screenshot) racist tweet that had the internet buzzing. Now, Amy is again being accused of being totally, um, racially insensitive, even sparking an #AmySchumerGottaGoParty on Twitter.

The mess started this time around when Amy tweeteda video starring herself and pals Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes and Joan Cusack, doing what is apparently a Formation parody along with the caption, “When on an island with @goldiehawn @iamwandasykes & Joan Cusack… you listen to @beyonce and get in formation http://TIDAL.com/AmySchumer.”
The video shows Amy and her friends looking more than a little dirty and dancing (kinda?) in the jungle, doing their best imitation of Beyoncé’s moves around random cars. It’s… something.
While some found it funny, others were cringing harder than you can imagine. Those who were less than pleased (and totally freakin’ fed up) took to Twitter to express their thoughts, rage, shade and more.
I'm bringing snacks. How are you arriving?
