Jennifer Lawrence Texted Amy Schumer A Joke After 'Trainwreck' Shooting

by Robert Anthony

When the tragic shooting took place during a screening of Amy Schumer's "Trainwreck" last year, the 35-year-old star was just as heartbroken as the rest of the world.

The only difference between Amy Schumer and the rest of us is that we didn't get a light-hearted text from Jennifer Lawrence as support.

In a recent interview for Lenny Letter, Schumer sat down with Lena Dunham to describe how the heartbreaking shooting affected her and how the support she received from friends and family helped her cope tremendously.

While speaking to Dunham, she said,

So I didn't really know how to react. I was so upset, I watched the news that whole night, I was just fucking fucked up by it. Any shooting fucks me up. Of course. There are some shootings I will choose to skip.


With all of the horrid shootings taking place lately, I'm sure we can all relate that sometimes taking a break from the news is worth keeping your sanity. She added,

Like I skipped Sandy Hook. I was like, no, no, not letting this in, I can't. I didn't go too deep into Orlando. I was like, I can't go down the rabbit hole because it really fucking kills me for at least a week. I am in a K-hole of misery.

Amy Schumer continued,

[When the theater shooting happened,] it was such a shock, and it shouldn't have been because it happens, but … You know, that is actually when I felt the closest to Jennifer Lawrence, because that day she texted me, 'It's your fault.' And in times like that only jokes make you feel a little better.

Yes, you read that correctly...

Jennifer Lawrence offered some quality dark humor to lighten the mood by texting Amy Schumer saying "It's your fault."


It's safe to say that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer share a quality friendship where they're able to comfort each other during dark times -- even if it means having to belt out a joke or two.

Hey, ladies, are we ever going to be able to witness that screenplay you two were working on?!

In addition to J-Law's uplifting words, Schumer had also been contacted by her distance cousin Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), according to Mashable.

Following his outreach, both Chuck and Amy Schumer have held a number of press conferences geared toward combatting gun violence in America and raising awareness regarding the country's faulty justice system.
