Amy Schumer requested a pay increase for her Netflix stand-up special after learning what Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle made from theirs, reports People Magazine.
Schumer reworked her Netlix special salary which was originally priced at $11 million. Rock and Chapelle pulled in $20 million for their specials.
The 36-year-old was reportedly able to ” raise her payment significantly after going back to the streaming channel and asking for more,” People says.
The comedian took to Instagram to debunk reports of her asking for the same thing as Rock and Chapelle.
Hot dog dog. Thanks for chiming in on what you feel I deserve to be paid. I believe women deserve equal pay. However I don't believe I deserve equal pay to Chris and Dave. They are legends and 2 of the greatest comics of all time. I would like to say that I have been selling out arenas these last couple years. Something a female comic has never done. That's a big deal to me, especially because I know I do my best every night on stage for the audience and they have a good time. I didn't ask for the same as my friends. I did ask for more than the initial offer. I will continue to work my ass off and be the best performer I can be. The reports of me "demanding" or "insisting" on equal pay to them aren't a true. #fat #stealsjokes
Folks online didn’t seem to think she deserved the same coin as the two legends.
