Amy Schumer took her thoughts to Instagram to clarify the matter about the joke she recently made. She pointed out that she is not mocking Tom Holland, who earlier explained his hiatus from social media platforms.
On Tuesday, 41-year-old comedian posted a story featuring a Notes app screenshot. She wrote, "Not shading Spider-Man. Making fun of myself. Of course social media is toxic!" and added a spider emoji.
The comedian's clarifications come after she posted a video on her official account on the same platform on Sunday. She sarcastically joked about doing "more social media," noting that she has decided to do so for her own mental health.
Amy Schumer stated that "looking at my phone for eight and a half hours a day is helping [her]," adding that "it is helping this pimple patch and this breakout."
People later quoted the celebrity, joking, "...being in my 40s, it's actually good for me to watch all of 'Love Island' and all of 'The Bachelors,' where in paradise or just normal mansions."
It continues, "So you'll be seeing a lot more of me on social media, just for my physical and mental wellbeing."
The "Trainwreck" actress captioned the post, writing, "Important mental health announcement."
Several individuals, including celebrity pals of Amy Schumer, found it humorous. Mail Online said she had the likes of Michelle Pfeiffer, Chelsea Handler, and Orlando Bloom laughing in the comment section of the post.
However, the video emerged on Instagram hours after Tom Holland made an announcement on the same platform. He talked about his hiatus from social media and explained his decision.
The "Spider-Man" star stated that he finds social media platforms, like Instagram and Twitter, "overstimulating" and "overwhelming." He added that he gets "caught up," and "spiral," especially when he reads things about himself on these sites.
Holland continued that these have become "very detrimental" to his mental health, making him decide to "take a step back and delete the apps."
In the same social media update, the Marvel actor also discussed Stem4, which he said to be "one of the many charities The Brothers Trust is extremely proud to support." He shared that he "would like to take a moment to shine a light on their fantastic work."
Tom Holland consequently urged fans and followers to "take the time to watch [his] video." He added that sharing it "with anyone who it may resonate with... would be greatly appreciated."
