NEW YORK, March 9 (UPI) — Amy Schumer doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with “complicated” women.

The 34-year-old actress called out The Bachelor host Chris Harrison on Twitter after he referred to Season 20 contestant Jubilee Sharpe as “complicated” on Monday’s The Women Tell All episode.

“Team jubilee for life #Bachelor,” Schumer wrote. “There is nothing wrong with ‘complicated’ women Chris Harrison. You treated it like something she should fight.”

“A [woman] shouldn’t be less complicated so as to hopefully attract a man. And she shouldn’t find value in herself just because a dude liked her. Come on bro,” she chided.

“She is smart and strong and a sergeant in the military. She lost her entire family and you say she must fight off being complicated,” the star added.

Sharpe had told People that her biological parents and three brothers died under unknown circumstances when she was young. She referenced the loss on the Tell All episode, saying star Ben Higgins didn’t see her “complicated past as a huge obstacle.”

“I know you can’t control how complicated you are,” Harrison responded before later adding, “You might be complicated, and I know you stir the pot sometimes, but I hope you realize you’re a pretty special woman, and I really appreciate you coming here.”

Higgins eliminated Sharpe from the ABC reality competition in Week 5. Two contestants, JoJo Fletcher and Lauren Bushnell, remain, with the season finale and “After the Final Rose” special scheduled for March 14.

Schumer is known for her Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer, which was renewed for a third season in January.
