Honk for those who love Amy Schumer.
A gasoline station in Celina, Tennessee, went viral after tweeting a couple of trucker who simply may be the 40-year-old comic’s doppelgänger.
And Schumer herself even hit social media, questioning what was occurring.
An picture of Amelia, allegedly a truck driver who makes common pit stops in Clay County, was shared Thursday afternoon on the Twitter account for what’s reportedly the Celina 52 Truck Stop.
“Prize winner Amelia wanted us to point out that her teardrop tattoo is not because she murdered anyone. She accidentally killed a pedestrian once after falling asleep at the wheel and got the tattoo to honor their memory,” they wrote, with out acknowledging Schumer’s similarity, alongside a picture of the alleged lookalike, who was captured carrying a profane shirt from the Celina 52 on-line T-shirt retailer.
It was solely after a number of followers started to level out her resemblance to Schumer that their put up went viral, now appreciated by greater than 14,500 customers.
“This is Amy Schumer,” responded writer Kimberly Nicole Foster.
“Amy Schumer is trending because of a truck stop pic and NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT THIS???” added author Norb Aikin.
Since then, the “Trainwreck” and “I Feel Pretty” star tweeted her personal confused response: “Wait, what’s going on at a truck stop? -me,” accompanied by a crying emoji.
A consultant for Schumer has not responded to a request for remark from The Post.
When their preliminary put up went viral, Celina 52 tried to calm issues down, responding, “Quit calling her Amy Schumer. Amy Schumer doesn’t have a tattoo for accidentally running over a pedestrian.”
In an interview with The Post, Danny Brine — who claimed to be a truck stop shift supervisor — stated that Amelia’s “teardrop tattoo story is real” and claimed that the remainder space is certainly an actual place.
However, The Post was unable to confirm claims by Brine, who stated he doubles as a social media assistant there.
According to Brine, Celina 52 is only a pseudonym for the precise truck stop, which is positioned in Upper Cumberland, Tennessee. The cause for the faux title? The enterprise’ social media accounts are rife with raunchy, offensive and generally racist content material.
“Due to our content, we must use this name,” Brine defined. “The real location has been around since the early ’80s.”
Whether Brine’s claims are true, the web page’s social media content material options unprintable pictures taken at the apparently bona fide truck stop that Brine stated are photoshopped to incorporate off-color wordplay and in any other case politically incorrect themes within the signage. A associated Facebook account additionally has 50,000 followers.
“These aren’t our actual opinions,” he continued, “but the best moments are when someone thinks a post is 100% serious and gets upset about it.”
But inflicting Schumer to pattern on Twitter was by no means of their plan, in line with Brine.
“I can see why people think she looks like Amelia … I’ve never really watched any of her comedy,” he stated.
Another clarification: The “Stop Pooping In Our Parking Lot” signal contained within the preliminary tweet isn’t actual — however the tales are.
“The pooping in parking lots happens way too often,” Brine stated.
