Honk if you appreciate Amy Schumer.
A gasoline station in Celina, Tennessee, went viral following tweeting about a trucker who just may well be the 40-calendar year-outdated comedian’s doppelgänger.
And Schumer herself even strike social media, questioning what was likely on.
An impression of Amelia, allegedly a truck driver who helps make regular pit stops in Clay County, was shared Thursday afternoon on the Twitter account for what is reportedly the Celina 52 Truck Stop.
“Prize winner Amelia wanted us to point out that her teardrop tattoo is not for the reason that she murdered anyone. She accidentally killed a pedestrian the moment right after falling asleep at the wheel and got the tattoo to honor their memory,” they wrote, with no acknowledging Schumer’s similarity, along with an impression of the alleged lookalike, who was captured donning a profane shirt from the Celina 52 on the web T-shirt keep.
It was only immediately after several followers commenced to stage out her resemblance to Schumer that their publish went viral, now liked by a lot more than 14,500 people.
“This is Amy Schumer,” responded writer Kimberly Nicole Foster.
“Amy Schumer is trending due to the fact of a truck stop pic and NO One particular IS Talking ABOUT THIS???” added writer Norb Aikin.
Since then, the “Trainwreck” and “I Truly feel Pretty” star tweeted her individual confused response: “Wait, what is heading on at a truck stop? -me,” accompanied by a crying emoji.
A representative for Schumer has not responded to a request for remark from The Submit.
When their first publish went viral, Celina 52 tried to calm issues down, responding, “Quit calling her Amy Schumer. Amy Schumer does not have a tattoo for unintentionally running over a pedestrian.”
In an job interview with The Put up, Danny Brine — who claimed to be a truck stop change supervisor — mentioned that Amelia’s “teardrop tattoo story is real” and claimed that the relaxation region is in fact a authentic position.
Even so, The Post was unable to validate claims by Brine, who reported he doubles as a social media assistant there.
According to Brine, Celina 52 is just a pseudonym for the genuine truck cease, which is positioned in Upper Cumberland, Tennessee. The cause for the faux name? The business’ social media accounts are rife with raunchy, offensive and occasionally racist information.
“Due to our information, we must use this title,” Brine discussed. “The true place has been close to given that the early ’80s.”
Irrespective of whether Brine’s claims are legitimate, the page’s social media material functions unprintable images taken at the apparently bona fide truck halt that Brine stated are photoshopped to consist of off-shade wordplay and normally politically incorrect themes in the signage. A similar Facebook account also has 50,000 followers.
“These aren’t our precise views,” he continued, “but the finest moments are when somebody thinks a submit is 100% severe and gets upset about it.”
But leading to Schumer to craze on Twitter was in no way in their prepare, in accordance to Brine.
“I can see why individuals consider she appears to be like like Amelia … I’ve hardly ever truly watched any of her comedy,” he reported.
A further clarification: The “Stop Pooping In Our Parking Lot” signal contained in the initial tweet isn’t serious — but the tales are.
“The pooping in parking lots takes place way too typically,” Brine reported.
