Whether we're a fan or not, one thing's for sure: being a celebrity comes with a lot of criticism. And while the pressure of the public eye can really get out of control at times, there are some celebs who always seem to manage to keep a positive look on things. And there's perhaps no better example than the queen of comedy herself, Amy Schumer.

From laughing at her botox fails to revealing the not-so-glamorous side of motherhood and pregnancy, Schumer's always kept it real for her followers. And Amy has gotten quite a lot of "bad" over the years. Throughout her nearly two decades in comedy, the 40-year-old star has been the target of trolls, critics, you name it. And yet, despite all the hate, she somehow finds a way to put a positive, funny spin on it all. And so, with a little editing help, she created her own version of the #NotMyName challenge that's been making rounds online recently. Haven't heard of it? No problem, we're here to walk you through it from the beginning.

The viral trend kicked off on TikTok thanks to some celebrity participation. Alicia Silverstone, Drew Barrymore, Kerry Washington, and more all jumped on board, listing their famous character names to the tune of That's Not My Name by the Ting Tings. And while Alicia, Drew, and Kerry were highlighting their past roles, Schumer put her own unique twist on it by rather paying homage to her haters' words. "Joining my lady actor friends!" the I Feel Pretty star captioned her video. To the catchy tune, Amy highlighted some of the many insults thrown her way, including ugly, trash, fat, and much, much more.

Safe to say that the post spread like wildfire, with nearly two million views in just two days. "Omg you are the best. You win," one user commented on the video, while countless other celebs showed love in the comments. It's clear that there's nothing that Amy can't make funny, and she's not about to start letting her haters change that. Until next time, stay tuned.
