A film critic who cracked a joke at Amy Schumer's expense has apologised on Twitter after he was shut down by the comedian herself.

Jackson Murphy, 17, who has a movie reviewing blog called Lights Camera Jackson, posted a photo of himself with the Trainwreck star on the Critics Choice Awards red carpet with the caption: "Spent the night with @amyschumer. Certainly not the first guy to write that."

It immediately got the attention of Schumer, who responded just 30 minutes later with "I get it, Cause Im a whore? Glad I took a photo with you. Hi to your dad."

Murphy quickly deleted the post and backtracked.

"I truly apologise for the tweet I posted earlier. Im not a comedian and it wasnt funny. @amyschumer."

Schumer graciously accepted his apology, saying "thats really okay honey. I just remember thinking you and your dad were sweet and it was a bummer to read that."

People were quick to critise Schumer for not being able to take a joke, especially since the comedian herself routinely talks about her sex life in her stand-up.

"Wowwwwwww. Can't believe you got offended from that joke. You have officially graduated from comedian to celebrity," said one fan on twitter.
