Amy Schumer on Trainwreck Shooting: 'I Was Just Like, I Wish I Never Wrote That Movie'

The new Vanity Fair profile on Amy Schumer, written by Bruce Handy, is fairly unremarkable (unless, like me, you’re shocked that a national publication would use the word “comedienne” and feign shock over a female comic working blue in 2016)—that is, until Schumer opens up about the tragic movie theater shooting that…
