Amy Schumer was just asked how she'd cope if her son is diagnosed with autism
So beautifully said.
If you are still not following the queen that is Amy Schumer on Instagram, let us just tell you this – you are missing out, big time.
The actress and comedian loves to keep it real – and we always found ourselves in stitches while also nodding in agreement whenever Schumer posted about pregnancy and new motherhood on her social media over the past year.
Now baby Gene is here, but lucky for us, the mum-of-one is still providing us with plenty of raw and honest accounts of her personal life.
In fact, Schumer’s latest Instagram post brought forward an inappropriate question, but the quick-witted comedian’s come-back was perfect.
Accompanying an adorable image of Amy and her young son at the beach, was the question: “Would anyone be interested in seeing a docu-series of my pregnancy and birth?” But what Schumer probably had not predicted, was that the post brough up a totally different, and somewhat intrusive issue altogether.
It seems most of Schumer's followers were thrilled with the idea of a docu-series, while others were most definitely not. One follower, however, took the matter one step further, suggesting instead of documenting her pregnancy and birth, that Amy makes a documentary about her discovery of husband Chris Fisher’s diagnosis of autism and how she copes with the possibility of Gene also having autism.

“Not really, honestly,” the follower replied. “I think you’re great, I just feel like it’s self-serving and overdone. I’d like to see a documentary of you discovering your mate is diagnosed with autism and how you cope with the possibility that your child will be on the spectrum….”
To dial back, Amy famously spoke of her husband's ASD diagnosis on her Netflix special, Amy Schumer: Growing.
And true to form, Schumer did not bat an eyelid at the comment in regards to her son, clapping back:
“How I cope? I don’t see being on the spectrum as a negative thing. My husband is my favorite person I’ve ever met. He’s kind, hilarious, interesting and talented and I admire him. Am I supposed to hope my son isn’t like that? I will pay attention and try and provide him with the tools he needs to overcome whatever challenges come up like all parents. I’d be disappointed if he liked the Big Bang theory and NASCAR not if he has ASD.”
Oh, Any. Please never change.
