Amy Schumer Blames the Right for Her Comedy Special’s Bad Reviews

Amy Schumer’s new stand-up special for Netflix is receiving overwhelmingly negative reviews, and she thinks she knows who’s to blame.

“The Leather Special” debuted on the streaming service last week, and it’s already gotten hundreds of one-star reviews from Netflix subscribers. Schumer responded to the backlash Wednesday on her Instagram account, citing a report from Splitsider that claims hundreds of alt-right trolls are behind all the negative reviews.

“The alt-right organized trolls attack everything I do. Read the @splitsider article,” Schumer wrote. “They organize to get my ratings down. Meeting in sub Reddit rooms. They tried on my book and movies and TV show.” She also called out the media for reporting on the negative reviews and the fact that her special appears to be a critical flop.

“I am only alarmed by the people printing their organized trolling as ‘news.’ [T]his is what the current administration wants,” she argued.
