You might have heard that Amy Schumer had a wedding this week. A quick one.
And whilst the comedian took to Instagram to clarify that no, her surprise nuptials to Chris wasn’t a shotgun wedding, she did have another small reuqest – that all those wanting to give the happy couple gifts donate to Everytown for Gun Safety in light of the Parkland school shooting on 14 February.
‘No I’m not pregnant,’ she started. ‘And no gifts but thank you for asking.
‘Instead please consider a donation to Everytown for gun safety (sic). Thought of Mayce and Jillian a lot yesterday and sending love to everyone who has been affected by gun violence.’
Amy made reference to Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson, who were killed in a Lafayette cinema whilst watching Amy Schumer’s breakout movie, Trainwreck.
Amy has long been a campaigner for gun control in America, and often appears alongside her cousin, democratic politician Chuck Schumer to promote the issue.
Everytown is an organisation that works to end gun violence in American. Amy’s request comes a day after gunman Nikolas Cruz entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and killed 17 people.
