Honk, if you love Amy Schumer.
A gas station in Selina, Tennessee, went viral after tweeting about a truck driver who may have been the 40-year-old comedian’s double.
And Sumer herself even got on social media, wondering what was going on.
An image of Amelia, who is said to be a truck driver who makes regular stops in Clay County, was shared on Thursday afternoon on her Twitter account about what is said to be a Celina 52 truck stop.
“Award winner Amelia wanted us to point out that her tear tattoo was not because she killed anyone. She once accidentally killed a pedestrian after falling asleep at the wheel and getting a tattoo to honor their memory, “they wrote, not acknowledging the resemblance to Sumer, along with an image of the alleged sly, who was captured wearing an unclean shirt. from Celina 52 online T-shirt shop.
It was only after several followers began to point out her resemblance to Sumer that their post went viral, now liked by more than 1
“This is Amy Schumer,” said Kimberly writer Nicole Foster.
“Amy Schumer is in trend because of a photo of a truck stopping and no one is talking about it ???” added author Norb Aikin.
Since then, the star of “Train Ruins” and “I Feel Beautiful” wrote in her own confused reaction: “Wait, what’s going on at a truck stop?” -me “, accompanied by crying emoticons.
A Schumer representative did not respond to a request for comment from The Post.
When their initial post went viral, Selina 52 tried to calm things down, saying, “Stop calling her Amy Schumer. Amy Schumer does not have a tattoo for accidentally running over a pedestrian. ”
In an interview with The Post, Danny Brown – who said he was a truck change manager – said that “the story of Amelia’s tears tattoos is real” and said the rest area was indeed a real place.
However, The Post failed to verify the claims of Brine, who said he was doubled as a social media assistant there.
According to Brine, Celina 52 is just a nickname for the actual truck stop, which is located in Upper Cumberland, Tennessee. The reason for the fake name? Social media business accounts are full of rude, offensive and sometimes racist content.
“Because of our content, we have to use that name,” Raine explained. “The real location is from the early ’80s.”
Whether or not Brine’s claims are true, the content on the social media page contains unprinted photos taken at the apparently bona fide truck stop, which Brine claims were photoshopped to include non-standard puns and other politically incorrect topics in the captions. A connected Facebook account also has 50,000 followers.
“These are not our real opinions,” he continued, “but the best times are when someone thinks the post is 100% serious and upset.”
Some tweeters, according to a Snopes report, did not understand the joke. “This MUST be a troll,” wrote one confused reader. „Setup. Something. There is no way this can be real. “
But getting Sumer to move on Twitter was never in their plan, according to Brine.
“I understand why people think she looks like Amelia … I’ve never really seen a comedy from her,” he said.
Another clarification: The “Stop getting on our parking lot” sign in the original tweet is not real – but the stories are.
“Parking pooping happens too often,” Raine said.
