Amy Schumer wants celebrities who are “lying” about using Ozempic to “shut the f**k up.”
The comedian called out stars who claim to have lost weight simply by eating “smaller portions” while appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week.
“You are on Ozempic or one of those things, or you got work done. Just stop,” Schumer, 42, told “everyone” hiding their use of the Type II diabetes drug.
“Be real with the people,” she continued. “When I got lipo, I said I got lipo.”
The I Feel Pretty star also admitted to taking Ozempic herself “like, a year ago.”
While Schumer “immediately invested” in the medication, semaglutide was not “liveable” for her.
“I was one of those people that felt so sick and couldn’t play with my son,” she explained, referencing her and her husband Chris Fischer’s 4-year-old, Gene. “I was so skinny, and he’s throwing a ball at me, and [I couldn’t].”
Schumer is not the first comedian to come clean about Ozempic use.
In January, Chelsea Handler told Call Her Daddy podcast listeners that she had formerly taken the drug without realising it.
“My anti-ageing doctor just hands it out to anybody,” the former Chelsea Lately host, 48, explained at the time. “She said, ‘If you ever want to drop five pounds, this is good.‘”
Handler clarified that she was not “on it anymore” despite considering herself an “irresponsible drug user.”
“I’m not gonna take a diabetic drug,” she said. “I’m not gonna do that. That’s not right for me.”
Many Bravo celebrities have spoken about their experiences with semaglutide, which is the active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy, from Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi to Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dolores Catania.
