Amy Schumer has been accused of throwing shade at Tom Holland on social media in light of his recent post that stated he was taking a break from social media to preserve his mental health.

On Sunday, Holland told his 67.7 million Instagram followers that he was temporarily stepping away from his account in order to keep his peace of mind.

“I have taken a break from social media for my mental health because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming …I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online,” he said in the video. “Ultimately it’s very detrimental for my mental state.”

Hours later, Amy Schumer posted a video of herself poking “fun” at celebs who take social media breaks for their mental health and well-being.

“Hey y’all. I’ve decided for my own mental health, to do more social media. I find that looking at my phone for eight and a half hours a day is helping me. And it’s helping this pimple patch and this breakout,” she began the video.

Her clip continued, “And being in my 40s, it’s actually really good for me to watch all of Love Island and all of The Bachelors. Whether in paradise or just normal mansions. So you’ll be seeing a lot more of me on social media just for my physical and mental wellbeing.”

Fans have pointed out that Schumer’s parody video was posted a matter of hours after Holland’s vulnerable video was published and accused her of “mocking” the MCU star.

“It wasn’t really appropriate for her to watch Tom’s video – which she obviously did because she posted this pretty soon after he posted – and decide, “this is the perfect opportunity to take something that is obviously not about me and make it all about me”.

“It’s weird and, quite honestly, selfish, to have that reaction to someone being vulnerable and using that vulnerability to simply promote mental health organisations. She might simply be self-deprecating but her response or “comedic take” wasn’t asked for,” one social media user weighed in on the video.

Another commented, “She is such an asshole. Like she isn’t even funny she is JUST an asshole”.

“Amy, if you are mocking Tom and those with mental issues, and how social media is the toilet and bully of society, then you need a full-time gig at TMZ…” a third wrote.
