Amy Schumer posts nude photo on Instagram to address controversy

Amy Schumer is once again taking on backlash around her -- this time with a nude photo.

The "Trainwreck" star took to Instagram on Wednesday to respond to the uproar over a report that surfaced that revealed she was paid $11 million for her recent Netflix special, while legendary comedians Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle were each paid $20 million for their respective specials.

Happy day of birth to my son, my whole heart ❤️
So honored to have been photographed by Mert and Marcus for their book new book! 20 years in the making! It's out Sept 7th #mertandmarcus @mertalas @macpiggott #taschen
Cheers to @playboy for going back to nudes. The female body is so beautiful, every size and every age. Be proud! #thefemalebodyisbeautiful #allshapesandsizes #loveyourself #loveyourbody
Hot dog dog. Thanks for chiming in on what you feel I deserve to be paid. I believe women deserve equal pay. However I don't believe I deserve equal pay to Chris and Dave. They are legends and 2 of the greatest comics of all time. I would like to say that I have been selling out arenas these last couple years. Something a female comic has never done. That's a big deal to me, especially because I know I do my best every night on stage for the audience and they have a good time. I didn't ask for the same as my friends. I did ask for more than the initial offer. I will continue to work my ass off and be the best performer I can be. The reports of me "demanding" or "insisting" on equal pay to them aren't a true. #fat #stealsjokes
#54 and clean. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Mikey made me do it ... Miami nights 🙌🏻 1. This is my pre DWTS body🦄 2. I am not currently in Miami but am in NYC 3. I posted this knowing most of you would be judgmental and couldn't resist a chance to tear me down and I was right. 4. Go be offended at your own life. 5. I'm living my life to the fullest. ❤️
Just wanted to share that one of the reasons @eatingboys has inspired me so much is because of the way she mixes her humor and sexuality. I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn't lovable by others- its sole purpose was to be fodder for jokes. I performed the insult so no one else could. I don't regret any of it- that's my art and that was my truth- but now, at age 31, having been through hell and back with my health and other people's perceptions of my physicality, I feel deeply comfortable with the idea that this pear-shaped pot of honey is equally good for making people laugh and laying out like a Suicide Girl circa 2004. Love it all.

The accompanying caption takes on the pay discrepancy between her, Rock and Chappelle, and she maintains that she doesn't think she "deserves" to be paid the same as the two stars.

"Thanks for chiming in on what you feel I deserve to be paid," she wrote. "I believe women deserve equal pay. However I don't believe I deserve equal pay to Chris and Dave. They are legends and 2 of the greatest comics of all time."

She went on to highlight one of her proudest accomplishments.

"I would like to say that I have been selling out arenas these last couple years. Something a female comic has never done," she explained. "That's a big deal to me, especially because I know I do my best every night on stage for the audience and they have a good time."

She wrapped up by revealing that, though she didn't ask to be paid the same as Rock or Chappelle, she did negotiate for Netflix's initial offer to be higher.
