Amy Schumer’s Parody of Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ Is Getting Her A Lot Of Hate

Amy Schumer is sharing her naked reaction to the criticism of her parody of Beyonce’s “Formation” video.

Well, her near-naked reaction to it at least.

After being roasted on social media for the spoof video, Schumer took to Instagram and posted a photo of herself stripped down to her panties Monday and explained that the video was a “tribute” to Beyonce’s original.

“You know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation,” Schumer wrote. “Thanks for the exclusive release Tidal! We had so much fun making this tribute. All love and women inspiring each other. #strongertogether.”

Twitter erupted with anger following the release of the video, which features Schumer and Goldie Hawn gyrating to Beyonce’s song, the video for which stirred controversy itself upon its release, with its theme of police brutality.

A number of critics took Schumer to task for seeming to make light of a serious issue for African Americans.

“There is no possible excuse for @AmySchumer not to know the cultural significance of #Formation for black women.I hope this hurts her career,” one Twitter user wrote.

“It is weird to me that @amyschumer thought a song about the police killing black people was perfect for a parody,” another said.

Schumer’s video was released Friday exclusively on streaming service Tidal, which boasts Beyonce as an eclusive artist. The singer’s husband, rapper Jay Z, is a stakeholder in Tidal.

As for the reaction to Schumer’s response, comments ranged from “Gorgeous picture, Amy” to “I wanna put my finger In your butt and make a wish.”
