GREENVILLE, SC., May 2, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Amy Schumer is saying no to some fans.

According to, the 34-year-old comedian won’t be taking any more photos with them, thanks, she said, to one particular fan in South Carolina.

Schumer explained in on Instagram that after she performed that evening in Greenville, a man “just run up” to her on the street and “scared the s—” out of her.

“[He] Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said ‘No it’s America and we paid for you,’ ” Schumer wrote in her caption, adding that the man was with his daughter.

“I was saying ‘stop’ and ‘no.’ Great message to your kid. Yes, legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying ‘no,'” Schumer wrote.

“I will not take [pictures] with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville,” she wrote.

Schumer elaborated on her Instagram post on Saturday, writing on Twitter that she still will take photos “with nice people when I choose to if it’s a good time for that.”

“But I don’t owe you anything,” she continued. “So don’t take if I say no.”

Schumer also told, “I am grateful to people who like my work and support me, but not the ones who think that behavior is ok.”

However, the man in question, Leslie Brewer, says it didn’t happen that way at all.

He reached out to FOX Carolina saying he is the man in the photo and said Schumer’s post is not an accurate account of what happened.

According to the interview (below), Brewer said he was walking down the street when several other pedestrians started shouting that they spotted the celebrity at a stoplight. He said he pulled out his camera to Instagram it, but stopped recording when she asked.

“I did it in a non-threatening way,” Brewer said. “She says I got all up in her face, and it was completely different from the video.”
