Amy Schumer posted a very relatable selfie of her out for a hike with her five-week-old son, Gene the other day. In the photo, the comedian is sporting her hospital underwear and a sports bra, along with sneakers and that is it.
The I Feel Pretty star has always been brutally honest about her life, including her difficult pregnancy. It is not unlike her to post such a realistic and relatable picture, showcasing what her life is like as a new mom.
Her raw moment was praised by many of her followers, including Snooki who just welcomed baby number three a couple of weeks ago. The Jersey Shore star too is all about the hospital underwear and is not afraid to let her fans know when she is wearing them either.
However, not everyone was praising the comedian for her honesty. Some of her followers instead decided to shame her for sharing too much information on social media.
“Motherhood is a well-deserved gift. Put some decent clothes on and grow up. Don’t get your point. Far from looking like a glowing mother. Self-respect gone to the dogs,” wrote karenbkost
“I have a question. is that your front yard? Or a public area? Because I’m not sure walking in a public area in hospital pants and a bra is appropriate. I’m all for keeping it real but a tad too far?!” expressed tara_linda19
“Really. Stop it. We all know that you love to provoke being ‘natural’ all the time… You’re going for a f*cking walk! Decent jogger shorts and a tee won’t do, 5 weeks post?” shared mandy_lotbastian

Ok here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy. Women are the shit. Men are cool and whatever but women are fucking warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name @domino_kirke @carriagehousebirth what do doulas do? I don’t totally know But what she did was make me and Chris feel totally secure and supported throughout my pregnancy and the birth process. I really recommend getting one if you can. Doctor Brill and all the nurses and pediatricians at Lenox Hill and all the other hospitals i spent time in this year, thank you for everything. I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks. I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy. Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But fuck, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone. @hgmoms has the best research I found on the condition The only thing that helped me with my nausea was products from @thelordjones I learned that globally 1 in 5 births take place without the assistance of a skilled birth attendant. @everymomcounts is a great place to donate $250 equips a midwife with a bag of medical equipment needed to provide care to hundreds of women and babies in Guatemala. All my friends. Friends I’ve had for 30 years or people who encouraged me to “keep going” or telling me “it will be worth it”. Thank you. Every woman I encountered is so willing to help and advise you and I felt all their strength. And you were right. Thank you ladies from my family. Chris, Gene and of course Tatiana #titsleaking #wearingadiaper
Amy Schumer has been sharing the real and raw moments of motherhood. It is nothing unusual for the comedian, but some of her social media followers believe she has gone too far. Others are praising her for getting candid about motherhood and not glamourizing it, especially weeks after birth.
The thing is she might be sharing TMI, but honestly, that is what makes her a hilarious and relatable comedian. Her bluntness is what has helped Schumer become one of the most popular female comics around. Clearly having a baby is not going to change her approach to being open with her fans
Social media is torn. Did Amy Schumer go too far in her post of her walking her son in a bra and hospital underwear?
