“I am so proud of my special and grateful to all the people spreading love on line about it,” Schumer wrote.”I am the first female comic who is selling out arenas all over the world and so grateful for that. I am embarrassed for the ‘journalists’ who report on trolls activities as if it’s news.”

“It’s indicative of administration right now,” she added. “Anyone who reported that ‘viewers aren’t happy’ with my special, it would have been cool if you did a moment of research before posting. The alt right organized trolls attack everything I do.”

“They organize to get my ratings down,” she continued. “Meeting in sub Reddit rooms. They tried on my book and movies and tv show And I want to thank them. It reminds me what I’m saying is effective and bring more interest to my work and their obsession with me keeps me going.”

“I am only alarmed by the people printing their organized trolling as “news” this is what the current administration wants,” she wrote. “Call me a whale. Call me a thief and I will continue to rise and fight and lead. I know who I am. I am strong and beautiful and will use my voice my whole time on this earth.”
