Remember the time Kim Kardashian nearly broke the internet with a photo of her nude body? Yeah, so does Amy Schumer, who just posted a nearly-naked shot of her own body — but she’s using the publicity to promote a good cause.
The actress is standing up against gun violence in quite a different way than we’re used to seeing. Schumer posted a photo of herself in just an orange sports bra, with the caption “Today please #wearorange for gun safety! #everytown,” followed by a slew of other photos of herself and friends promoting the cause. (She joins many other celebrities in the initiative to wear orange one June 2 to combat gun violence, including Kardashian and Rachel Zoe.)
At this point, Schumer has made it clear that she’s comfortable flaunting her body, whether or not she’s promoting a cause she’s passionate about — it’s not the first time she’s posted a provocative pic on the internet. She set her lady parts on fire for the world to see in her cover story for Vanity Fair, saying that it was “one of the most meaningful moments” of her life.

“I begged Annie to photograph me with no underwear on in just a T-shirt,” Schumer told Vanity Fair of her shoot with Annie Leibovitz. “I explained to her how important it was to me and she finally agreed. I felt powerful and beautiful. She understood once we shot it. Or maybe she ran to the bathroom to throw up. It was one of the most meaningful moments of my life.”
And there was also the Pirelli calendar, in which she posed just in underwear and heels, holding a cup of coffee — a moment about which she shared a thoughtful post just the other day.
So while it’s possible that the sports bra in question was the only piece of orange on hand, we’re thinking she knows that with nudity, comes attention — and hers is going towards something good.
