Amy Schumer comparing herself to Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock is the funniest joke of her career. Amy, you should know better than this, Sweetheart.
Amy Schumer has cleared up the rumors.
According to CNN, Schumer's team did go back to Netflix for more money after finding out about Dave's and Chris' payouts. And, the source says she received more money after the fact. Yet, her team did not note how much.
However, Amy clarifies that she doesn't deserve the same as them.
She mentioned as follows.
I believe women deserve equal pay. However I don't believe I deserve equal pay to Chris and Dave. They are legends and 2 of the greatest comics of all time.
So, apparently after learning what Dave and Chris got paid for their Netflix specials, Schumer believes she's getting incredibly underpaid for her The Leather Special performance.
Although, last I checked, Chappelle and Rock are veterans in comedy. Just their names alone can sell out a venue. Amy Schumer is really just getting her feet wet, right?.
Nevertheless, according to People, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock were paid $20 million for their specials. Contrarily, Schumer was paid $11 million. Of course, as you can see from her protest, that's not setting well with her.
People reports that Amy Schumer's demand for more pay comes via the topic of women's rights in the workplace.
While this is understandable, Schumer also needs to look at the truth of the matter.
She simply hasn't put in the same amount of work as Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock. They've endured decades of comedy to get to where they are now. Schumer is only decades old!
In comparison to a regular job, what Amy's asking is that she get paid the same compensation as those on completely different employee levels. A manager doesn't get paid the same as a regional manager, just as the regional manager doesn't get paid the same as the general manager.
Her name just doesn't weigh the same as Dave Chappelle.
(Dave voice) "Sorry..."
