Schumer later took to Twitter to elaborate her decision.

She says she will still take pictures “with nice people when I choose to if it’s a good time for that.”

The fan that scared the Inside Amy Schumer star is named Leslie Brewer.

Brewer posted a video of the 34-year-old actress to his Instagram account after she posted the photo of him to her’s.

In Brewer’s video Amy calmly says, “that’s rude can you delete that?” Brewer apologizes, gives a thumbs up and cuts to where he is alone saying, “and then she got mad at me.”
