'I Feel Pretty's' Amy Schumer Arrested by PC Police (Again)

The woke comic keeps getting busted by Social Justice Warriors despite her progressive bona fides.

Amy Schumer has been down this road before.

The "Trainwreck" star is one of the comedy world's most vocal liberals. She's spoken in favor of female empowerment, shredded Hollywood sexism and, most notably, demanded stricter gun control legislation.

Once upon a time, that would have afforded her some protection against Social Justice Warriors. Those days are long over.

The latest attack? Her April 20 comedy "I Feel Pretty" is offensive to the core. Why? SJWs complain the movie posits that Schumer's character, unhappy at not being stick thin, is an insult to women everywhere who aren't as attractive as Schumer truly is.

The avalanche of hate began after the film's trailer hit the web. No one had actually seen the movie, which is far more about finding your inner beauty than anything else. That didn't stem the flow of invective against the film.

Schumer stars as a web site marketer who, after hitting her head, believes she's suddently supermodel beautiful. Her confidence soars, and she starts a new romance with an affable gent played by Rory Scovel.

The comedienne spent this week in Damage Control Mode, as she tried to whip up enthusiasm for "Pretty" during a flurry of press interviews. The film is expected to under-perform at the box office all the same. It might not even match Schumer's 2017 dud "Snatched." That film, pairing her with the legendary Goldie Hawn, also drew SJW fire.

Hawn and Schumer played a mother-daughter duo on the run from criminals while on an exotic adventure. Only film reviewers and cultural critics, who reliably lean to the left, scorched the film for the "racist" portrayal of the Latino locals who hound our heroines.

Others have found Schumer's popular stand-up shtick "problematic," too. The Washington Post ran an op-ed just as Schumer's career was taking off, pounding the comic for racist material.

None of this has changed Schumer's approach to the media. Consider this oh, so woke quote from a recent Time magazine interview about her efforts to increase Hollywood diversity.

“It’s not a perfect movie,” she says of I Feel Pretty, which she also produced. “It would be great if my role had been played by a woman of color and there were more trans people in it, more people with disabilities.”

Schumer is hardly alone. Even fellow liberals like Will Ferrell and Tina Fey have been slammed by the Left for their creative crimes.

In Ferrell's case, he made a "racist" comedy called "Get Hard." Fey's sin? She produced the Netflix series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" featuring a white character with Native American blood.

At some point liberals stars like Schumer, Ferrell or Fey will take a hard stand against PC scolds. To Fey's credit, she shook off the "Kimmy" complaints like a pro. Schumer isn't willing to give up her woke talking points quite yet.

Who knows? If her next movie project summons the PC Police once again, that might change.

I am entertained when the left starts eating themselves. Just grab the popcorn, sit back and enjoy the fight over stupidity. It is probably the only thing that will curb this ridiculous movement. In fact, the SJW movement and comedy cannot coexist. It is impossible to fully embrace the SJW movement and remain funny. The only thing left you can make fun of are Christians and people from the center-right. Even then, those jokes must be done so mean-spirited, because of the evil nature of these people, that they aren't jokes, but just nasty attacks. The end product is something that no one finds funny, and only a few find tolerable.
