Comedian Amy Shumer was spotted out yesterday in SOHO, NY. The popular comedian was having a lunch date with a male companion - who is African American. Amy made sure to pose with the man for paparazzi photos.
The timing of Amy's paparazzi photographed lunch date is a little suspicious. A few weeks ago, the Guardian newspaper scrutinized some "racially insensitive" jokes from her recent stand-up special as well as jokes she told while hosting the MTV Movie Awards.
In response to the article Amy Schumer tweeted out, “I ask you to resist the urge to pick me apart. Trust me. I am not a racist. I am a devout feminist and lover of all people. My fight is for all people to be treated equally.”
