If I were a reporter I’d ask her if she’d give her illness to a deserving black actress.
After all, she said her lead in a movie should have gone to a black person.
“Here’s what I’ve been up to this week,” the 36-year-old actress wrote in an Instagram post Friday alongside a photo of herself in the hospital. “I want to give a big thank you to the doctors, the bad ass nurses also my husband who’s name is, i want to say, Chris? and my sisters Kimby and mol who have been by my side the whole time.”
The “I Feel Pretty” star was supposed to fly to London for the opening of her new movie, but announced in the post that her doctors wouldn’t let her travel.
“I’m really disappointed selfishly to miss this trip because I love London and Europe in general and all the great people (food) there,” she continued. “But I need to put my health first … [The movie] is sweet and fun and you will walk out feeling better. Which is something I hope to feel soon too.”
Another photo shows Schumer’s husband, Chris Fischer, holding her hand as she lies in a hospital bed. A third shows him sitting by her side.
A rep for Schumer did not immediately return our request for comment.
