Amy Schumer is the latest celebrity to distance themselves from the NFL and the 2019 Super Bowl.
The comedian took to social media with words for her fellow wypipo and their refusal to use their privilege for good.
"Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren't kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers. Otherhow are you not complicit," she wrote.
"I personally told my reps I wouldn't do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it's all i got. Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them," the Train Wreck star wrote.
I’m happy to see @amyschumer speaking out about @nfl #protests ... my thought about this is if I wasn’t half black I would still be outraged by everything! Including slavery, turning the other cheek is exactly what #whiteprivilege is! EVERYONE should be extremely angry!— NT (@Nicoleeeeclark) October 19, 2018

SHE IS standing up for common decency beliefs....she should get all the credit in the world for taking a stand especially when some of your favorite entertainers are content to just count their $$$ #AmySchumer pic.twitter.com/M96RYk19TY
Amy Schumer made a good post about white privilege recently too. I know y’all don’t like her, but she said similar things in support of Colin Kaepernick, and the lack of solidarity coming from white players.— @KarmaJonez (@KarmaJonez) October 19, 2018
Amy Schumer might’ve done something I actually support, shoutout to her 👌🏾👏🏾😳 pic.twitter.com/028zaWevyk— 🗽🇻🇮Int’lSexSymbolSuge🇻🇮🗽 (@Suggie2Necklace) October 19, 2018
Amy Schumer is now invited to the cookout. We cannot let her know which cousin has the stash of beverages in their car trunk. She has to earn that ....— Grayson Alexander (@AlexGrayson3) October 19, 2018

amy schumer, wants to know, she also replied:
'I won't do a Super Bowl commercial
I oppose the NFL'
Dearest amy: this isn't about the NFL
black people killed by police, brutality is the issue
in the hood, a problem unknown to you
Amy Schumer should boycott all movies and TV appearances 😂— Cody #GoPats (4-2) (@easytyga) October 19, 2018
Nobody gives a fuck about Amy Schumer boycotting shit.— Shirley Chisholm (@aNickel4thought) October 19, 2018
Wait, Amy Schumer announced she's protesting the Super Bowl by not appearing in any commercials during the game? Lmao white women are wild— Rap Game Ina Goblin (@KaraBTweets) October 19, 2018
The only sacrifice is when we actually have to see Amy Schumer’s face. We have to sacrifice our eyes— Adam L. Goldstein (@Adamlgoldstein) October 19, 2018
