Amy Schumer backtracks on picture ban

Amy Schumer backtracks on picture ban

Amy Schumer will still take pictures with fans.

Although the 'Trainwreck' star claimed she will no longer pose for photographs with fans after she was recently frightened by a man who demanded a picture with her, she has taken to Instagram to assure her followers that it is not a complete ban.

She explained: "Thanks for the kind words and support. I'll still take pictures with nice people when I choose to if it's a good time for that. But I don't owe you anything. So don't take if I say no (sic)."

Amy, 34, originally took to the photo-sharing website to declare her ban on pictures because she is sick of strangers invading her space and was "scared" by the man who allegedly shoved a camera in her face.

She said: "Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no. I will not take picture with people anymore and it's because of this dude in Greenville."

The actress managed to take a picture of the person who offended her - who she says had a little girl with him - and shared it with her four million Instagram followers.

Alongside a photograph of the man dressed in a baseball cap and tee-shirt, giving her a thumbs up sign and grinning, she wrote: "This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared me. Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said " no it's America and we paid for you" this was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid (sic)."
