A fired-up Amy Schumer has vowed to stop taking pictures with fans after an incident in South Carolina on the weekend.

The 34-year-old comedian took to Instagram to share a photo of a snap-happy male fan who wouldn't leave her alone.

"This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared the sh*t out of me," Schumer wrote in the photo's caption.

"Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said, 'no it's America and we paid for you.' This was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid.

"Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no. I will not take picture with people anymore and it's because of this dude in Greenville."

The Trainwreck star later took to Twitter to clarify her position on having photos with fans.

"Thanks for the kind words and support," she wrote.

"I know there are bigger problems in the world. But this was not right. I'll still take pictures with nice people when I choose to if it's a good time for that. But I don't owe you anything. So don't take (photos) if I say no."

A man claiming to be the overeager fan reached out to Fox Carolina and denied Schumer's account of the incident.

According to the news site, Brewer said he was upset when Schumer brought his daughter into the conversation and the two had a disagreement about him recording the video.

"She was just so rude," Brewer said to Fox.

"She cussed me out in front of my family."
