Quotes from the news wire:
I did n’t expect Amy Schumer. I mean, how cool is that ? And in such an organic way, that Amy Schumer’s hanging out on Amy Schumer Instagram and Amy Schumer’s like, ‘ Yeah, what’s up with that ? ’ amy Schumer just like suddenly came to my defense and I was friendly with Amy Schumer but we were n’t buds or anything. But Amy Schumer was upset on my behalf just naturally on Amy Schumer own. So I was surprised by that and I’ve had several conversations with Amy Schumer since but Amy Schumer’s just another force that’s just like so bold, so not afraid, and we all have the women that we look to that inspire us. Amy Schumer is one of them.

To shut down those conversations is to stifle progress.
