Outspoken celebrity, Amy Schumer, said in a recent interview that if you are not a feminist, then you’re insane. “I think anyone who is not a feminist is an insane person. I think they don’t know what feminism means,” she said.

Her recent comments were made during an interview with BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis. 

She added:

“It just means equality for women. But I think that word has a whole different meaning for different people. So someone will say to me: ‘You’re not a feminist are you?’… Of course I am. Of course I want equal rights for women…. Feminism is just about women having social, political and economic equality,”

Schumer, who is currently in the U.K. as part of a tour, also said she is comfortable being described as a feminist.

Schumer has repeated some feminist talking points in the past. In one of the Bud Light Party commercials, Schumer and Seth Rogan told the debunked claim of the gender pay gap.
