Amy Schumer announces her own NFL protest

Amy Schumer, before bursting onto the scene, starring in terrible movies and becoming one of the left’s top social justice social warriors, was genuinely funny.  Now, instead of jokes coming out of her mouth, she spews leftist talking points or finds other ways to show us all just how “woke” she really is.

Yet again the comedian has found another way to obtain the love of the left, but taking a stand or better yet, a knee.

Recently, on social media, Schumer posted saying that she will be supporting Colin Kaepernick’s protest by boycotting the Super Bowl…by not appearing in any ads.

Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit? I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country. Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?

In addition to stating her intention to not appear in any Super Bowl commercials, she also called on Maroon 5, who will perform at halftime, to boycott the NFL’s biggest game as well.

While she did appear in a beer commercial last year, how arrogant is it to go out and say this? Who’s to say that Bud Light or any other advertiser would want her in their ad? She’s become such a politically divisive and outspoken figure that I’m not sure many companies would want that image for their product anyway.

Second, if this was really how you felt, why do you need to come out and tell everyone about it? Just shut your mouth and not do any ads. Wouldn’t that be a better way to live out your beliefs instead of bringing attention to yourself ….instead of like well, an attention whore?

No, why live out what one believes in quiet humility when you can broadcast to the world, get SJW points with the left and get attention for it in the process?
