Amy Schumer: I don't 'deserve equal pay' with Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle

Actress-comedienne Amy Schumer has denied claims of her asking Netflix to pay her as much as fellow comedians Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle, as per Independent.

"Hot dog dog", she opened her analysis of the always-simmering debate in Hollywood over the gender gap in industry salaries.

"Thanks for chiming in on what you feel I deserve to be paid", she told her followers.

In fact, she thinks she does not deserve equal pay to Rock and Chapelle as they have been in the game for far longer as opposed to her, who started having sold out shows just a few years ago. "However I don't believe I deserve equal pay to Chris and Dave", Schumer wrote Wednesday in an Instagram captio of a photo.

According to CNN, a report claimed that the "Trainwreck" actress was initially paid about Dollars 11 million but later went back to the streaming service and negotiated for more fees after learning that her co-stars, comic legends Rock and Chappelle were receiving USD 20 million for the comedy specials.

"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", she declared. "I didn't ask for the same as my friends". But Rock and Chappelle got "eye-popping" deals for $20 million per each of their specials.

Schumer's post on the issue, meanwhile, brings up a good point: that the equal pay fight isn't about everyone earning the exact same dollar amount.

"The reports of me "demanding" or "insisting" on equal pay to them aren't true", she said. However, she will continue to work day in and day out to keep doing what she does. Schumer reportedly "received significantly more compensation" after she "raised the question of fairness", which some social media users scoffed at online.
