Amy Schumer gets super open about pregnancy by sharing graphic video of her puking

Amy Schumer has made a career - and an incredibly successful one at that - out of being rip-roaringly rude and honest. And if you think motherhood will change that, well, you've got another thing coming.

The comedian, who announced her pregnancy last month, shared a video on Instagram yesterday which had an important political message. This memo also happened to include some puking, because it's Amy Schumer, and of course she'd be super open about the realities of carrying a veritable parasite.

On Wednesday morning, Schumer shared graphic footage of herself vomiting after Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith emerged as the victor in Mississippi's heated runoff election.

"My feelings on her are best expressed by the above video,” Schumer wrote on Instagram, before advising those with weak stomachs to turn down the volume.

"Turn sound off if you have a weak stomach. This was my ride to my show at @tarrytownmusichall tonight and a picture from the end of my set," the I Feel Pretty star wrote.

"I love doing stand-up more than anything and I hate cancelling shows. I have to postpone some until I feel human again. But i will make up these dates and we will have a great time. I’m so proud of my stand up right now and can’t wait to share it. Thanks to the amazing crowd tonight for being so warm and such great laughers and for being cool with my sweatpants and slippers on stage," she continued.

"Shots by @marcusrussellprice we are shooting a doc of me these past few months leading up to a special Im filming and you will see that I’m strugglin right now [sic]. But I’m so grateful and excited to be a mom. I’m grateful I have access to healthcare, as we all should have. But I guess what I’m really saying is Fuck Hyde-Smith and anyone who voted for her. My feelings on her are best expressed by the above video. And I don’t usually agree with speaking ill of crackheads, but she has a crackhead looking mouth. Tiny racist teeth confederate ass campaign with her crack mouth said she would attend a public hanging"

Hyde-Smith will be the first woman to represent Mississippi in Congress, however, her campaign incited furore after she made comments about public hanging.

The remark was considered especially tone-deaf and insensitive as her Democrat rival, Mike Espy is an African American, and the state of Mississippi has a history of lynchings.

Additionally, Schumer is known to be suffering from severe, second-trimester nausea, that resulted in hospitalisation earlier this month. As she explained in the caption, the video had been filmed on Tuesday evening as she was on her way to a stand-up show in Tarrytown, New York, which went on despite her illness.

The 37-year-old married celebrity chef, Chris Fischer, in February, and the couple revealed that they were expecting in October.
