Hot damn! Amy Schumer took to Instagram on Wednesday, Aug. 23, to show off her best body ever in nothing but a lacy thong. The comedian, 36, shared the photo in response to reports that she demanded more money for her Netflix special, The Leather Special, after learning that the streaming site paid Dave Chapelle and Chris Rock significantly more for their respective stand-up specials.
In the photo, a nearly naked Amy flashes a huge smile as she holds her precious pet pooch, Tati, who is dressed in a hot dog costume. Clearly, the Trainwreck actress knew that flaunting her fantastic physique would catch fans’ attention. With that in mind, Amy accompanied her provocative post with a lengthy caption, shutting down the rumors that she sought more money than her male counterparts. Check it out in the video below!
“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,” she explained. “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.”
Amy added, “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 true.”
The Last Comic Standing alum also included the hashtag #fat at the end of her caption, which we don’t understand because girl looks good. This isn’t the first time Amy has stripped down on social media. In June 2016, she shared a photo of herself wearing nothing but an orange sports bra — but for a good cause. She used the publicity she got from the pants-free pic to stand up against gun violence. “Today please #wearorange for gun safety! #everytown,” she wrote at the time.

Amy also put her body on display while posing for a sensual shot featured in the 2016 Pirelli Calendar, photographed by celeb shutterbug Annie Leibovitz. During a 2015 interview with the Today show, the blonde beauty opened up about her lifelong struggle with body image and revealed how she finally found peace with her naturally curvy frame.
“It’s an emotional thing,” she said at the time. “It’s been a struggle for me my whole life, and especially just being in the entertainment industry. Standing on a stage in front of people, I can’t perform my best or be confident if I’m not sure — if I’m pulling at something [I’m wearing]. And sometimes I would just want to throw in the towel and be like, ‘I’m not gonna go do stand-up tonight.’ I’m coming out like, ‘OK, here’s what’s going on: No one’s just naturally thin. Everyone’s starving.”
