Yesterday, People reported about a story that Comedian Amy Schumer insisted she be paid more upon finding out how much Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle were paid for their Netflix specials. The news came from a story by Variety all about women and equal pay in the entertainment industry. 

While Chapelle and Rock were paid $20 million for their routines, Variety claims Schumer had been paid $11 million for her “The Leather Special” taping. Apparently, Schumer was able to raise her pay after negotiating with Netflix and bringing up the point of how much less she was being paid than Rock and Chappelle.

Is this really a gender issue, or is this a talent and higher ranking issue? It's almost like if new employee demanded to be paid as much as the manager. How else can we put this?

There's levels to this, girl. 

By the look of the Black Twitter feed, people are sharing the same sentiment. 

People can make the argument that the definition of funny is subjective, but let's be candid for a sec. Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock are veterans to the game with large followings who can bring in a large amount of revenue. Amy Schumer has the white feminist alliance, but she's not pulling the numbers Rock and Chappelle are. It just seems very convenient to pull the equal pay card here when in reality, it doesn't seem that deep.

Update, 8.24.17: 

Schumer, it seems, agrees with the Twitter critics quick to point out that Rock and Chappelle are older and more experienced. 

In a statement written on Instagram, the comedian wrote that "I believe women deserve equal pay. However I don't believe I deserve equal pay to Chris and Dave." Schumer went on to call the duo "legends and 2 of the greatest comics of all time."

She did not respond to those that questioned whether or not she is as funny as Rock and Chappelle.
