Amy Schumer is putting this whole joke-stealin’ mumbo jumbo to bed1
On Wednesday, Schumer appeared on Jim Norton‘s radio show to dispel the rumors and provide ample evidence to the contrary. In addition (and pretty impressively, she also volunteered to take a lie detector test to prove her innocence! The actress said of the hurtful claims:
“I would just never do that. This is what happens — people build people up then rip them down when they have some success.”
Makes sense, Amy is HUGE right now.
The comedian pulled up some compelling evidence in her favor, too: A., she never even saw the comedy specials she allegedly stole from and B., it’s strange and non-sensical to hold on to jokes for almost a decade and then to share them at the most public time in her life (aka the most opportune time to be caught).
So why all the finger pointing? Well, Amy also thinks the woman in the middle of the drama, Tammy Pescatelli, is trying to get famous from Amy’s success:
“I think this was Tammy’s trying to get something going.”
