In what seems to be a trend in celebrity activism, another Hollywood actress snapped a selfie for gun awareness.
Amy Schumer joined the #wearorange movement promoting National Gun Violence Awareness Day, posting a photo of herself in a sports bra…only a sports bra.
“Today please #wearorange for gun safety! #everytown,” read the caption of the Instagram post.
Schumer’s bottom-less selfie may not instantly inspire phone calls to government representatives calling for stricter gun laws, but it is undoubtedly one way to raise awareness.
The post follows another actress’s attempt to raise awareness on Twitter that backfired. Debra Messing’s tweet on gun violence landed her in a storm of criticism Wednesday.
Schumer’s attempt did not go without criticism as well, although the comedian’s spotlight on gun violence seemed to just cause confusion.

Amy Schumer nude would just increase gun sales. I don’t even like guns and I feel the need to be armed at the very thought. @benshapiro

@hi_im_shan it’s not. She’s making an issue that kills thousands a year about her ass. No thanks Amy. I’ve my own fantastic ass.

@hale_razor I’m still scratching my head over what Amy Schumer wearing an orange bra and NO PANTS has to do with “gun safety.”
