Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman and their homophobic Twitter past


Tweets from Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler and Sarah Silverman using anti-gay slurs are under the spotlight after a scandal with the comedian Kevin Hart, who had to step down as the Oscar ceremony host after his homophobic tweets from 2009-2012 resurfaced. But Nick Cannon revealed that Hart was not the only one to blame for homophobic tweets and called out a nunber of famous people for making a similar mistake. In a 2012 tweet, Trainwreck star Amy Schumer wrote: “Enjoy skyfall fags. I’m bout to get knee deep in Helen Hunt #thesessions”.Chelsea Handler, who hosted Netflix talk show Chelsea, wrote in 2010: “This is what a fag bird likes like when he flexes.” Wreck-It Ralph star Sarah Silverman sent a 2010 message that reads: “I dont mean this in a hateful way but the new bachelorette’s a faggot” Cannon was deeply surprised that none of these tweets caused a backlash similar to the story with Hart.Sarah Silverman shared a Twitter thread from a gay author Greg Hogben responding to Cannon. The thread shared by Sarah Silverman pointed out that she, Chelsea Handler and Amy Schumer are all long-time LGBT+ allies who helped fight for equality and fundraize for LGBT+ charities.
