Amy Schumer has tweeted her own version of the Time’s Up message, addressing men who have claimed to be scared to mix with women for fear of being caught up in the #MeToo movement. The comedian posted a screengrab of her notes app with the question: “Agree?”
The tweet says: “Any dude saying, ‘I’m scared to be in a room with a woman now’ or ‘is it ok to say hello? I don’t know the new rules,’ STOP.
“What you are doing is belittling victims who have been wronged. They say 1 in 6 women in our country are sexually assaulted. That’s based on who reports it. It’s been proven to be closer to 1 in 3. Your sisters/daughters.
Stop making fun of the terror and indignity most of us have faced in our lives. Again RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsberg) quotes Sarah Grimke, I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of my brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.
“If you’re confused about the new rules. Just ask and don’t make it a joke. Because that’s harmful and we don’t want to hear that kind of joke right now. Mmmmmkay?”
