Several comedians have come forward with accusations that Amy Schumer has stolen their jokes.

The comedy news site The Interrobang reported on Monday night that comedian Wendy Liebman had written in a since-deleted tweet, "Between Amy Schumer doing 1 of my best jokes on her HBO special and this meme of my joke, I’m done with social media." As Interrobang explained, the meme showed a pinup-style woman quoting one of Liebman's jokes.

Way to sully the Schumer name, Amy.

I watched the 'evidence' video and it's not very compelling. In the longest and supposedly most damning example: Even if her Slap Chef skit was based on the idea from the other lady's Oprah jokes, she didn't 'steal' a fully-produced, hilarious video, and she never even mentioned Oprah. The video is a lot more than the joke was. All intellectual property workers build on the work of others. Van Gogh didn't invent post-impressionism, he built on the work of other people.

I just worked with the cast of her Inside Amy Schumer show, and let me tell you she has a ton of writers working for her and quite frankly, I don't see it either based on that video.

I like Amy Schumer. I can careless about the rest.

Many comics have been accused of plagiarizing in the past. Its not something that will go away anytime soon
