Amy Schumer has been mum-shamed for returning to work just a couple of weeks after the birth of her baby boy.
The new mum performed at the Comedy Cellar in New York City on Monday night. Posting a photo to Instagram she wrote, “I’m back.”
Some fans are now giving the new mum grief for not taking more time off.
“Already???? That’s insane!!! And inhumane. Contract or not you need to be allowed at least six weeks for maternity,” wrote one concerned fan.
“Ugh why are you working so soon?!” a commenter added.
“Our bodies need time to rest and our babies crave us because all they have known is us,” added another follower.
“It’s the fourth trimester, I hope you don’t have to work anymore. Take this time to bond and heal and settle into this new avenue in life! You’ll have the rest of your life to work and this new time with your little one won’t happen again…”
“Like, I can still smell your placenta,” joked a commenter.
“Take a d**n break FFS.”
Like a champion Amy just let the comments slide straight off though.
When one follower commented “here comes the mom shaming … ughhhhhhhhhhh,” the comedian quipped, “I’ve always wanted to be mom-shamed!!!!!”
Today Amy shared a pic of her pumping with the caption “Sending out love to the moms shaming me for doing standup last night!”
