Amy Schumer Responds to Open Letter About 'Trainwreck' Shooting

Saturday, 01 Aug 2015 07:29 PM

Amy Schumer has responded to an open letter about the fatal shooting that occurred during a screening of "Trainwreck" in Lafayette, La. in late July. Her tweeted response indicates that she might address gun violence in her future work.

The letter -- a plea for Schumer to become a vocal anti-gun violence advocate -- was posted to Medium.com by Sarah Clements, who mentions in the essay that her mother survived the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

"As a woman, a daughter and sister, a national figure, and a role model, you have a real stake in gun violence happening all around you," the essay reads. Clements goes on to urge Schumer to get involved. "Demand change. Be a voice for our generation and for women -- two groups who make up most of the victims of the gun violence in our country."

Schumer tweeted a simple response to the call to action, noting that she has not forgotten the victims of the shooting. "Her name was Mayci, not Marci and I think about her and Jillian everyday. Don't worry I'm on it. You'll see."
