Amy Schumer Is Not Here for the Mom Shaming — And Neither Are We

Amy Schumer Is Not Here for the Mom Shaming — And Neither Are We

Amy Schumer was back on stage 14 days following the birth of her baby boy.

Amy Schumer gave birth to Gene Attell Fischer on May 5 — and was back on stage making us laugh on May 20.

That's incredible. But of course, with it comes the trolling mom shamers. Ugh.

But the comic's not having it. She took to Instagram with a pic of herself pumping breastmilk in bed, captioning it, "Sending out love to the moms shaming me for doing standup last night!" She also added a nod to Vanderpump Rules, tagging it #schumerpumprules.

Why come after Schumer for working so soon after baby? She's a performer who needs and wants to perform, and she can do that whenever she feels she's ready. Must fellow moms really need to be told this?

Lyss Stern, parenting expert, mom of three and author of Motherhood Is a B#tch, says to leave Schumer alone. "She's the best," she told Personal Space

"It's enough with the mom shaming! Let everyone do what they want as long as it's not causing any harm to anyone else. It's time for moms to stop shaming each other and worry about themselves."

Stern is currently writing a TV show based loosely around her life and her last book and said a main topic will be mom shaming.

"The show has a lot to do with the haters and mom shaming," she says. "Her character becomes so strong that the mom shamers eventually learn to back down very fast and never try and mess with her character again. Amy Shumer is my SHERo and I adore her! Let's applaud her for keeping it real."

And for getting on stage.
