35-year-old comedian, Hollywood actress and Hillary Clinton supporter Amy Schumer is being slammed as a racist by fans and critics due to her parody of Beyonce’s Formation music video. The parody was filmed with the co-stars of her upcoming film Mother/Daughter.

Schumer took to Instagram to post a statement regarding the matter, along with an accompanying topless photo of herself:

“You know you that b**** when you cause all this conversation. Thanks for the exclusive release Tidal! We had so much fun making this tribute. All love and women inspiring each other. #strongertogether,”

The outrage began on Saturday when Schumer released the video to the public through her YouTube account, rather than the exclusive music service Tidal owned by Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z. Schumer teamed up with actress Goldie Hawn to choreograph the performance. Yet, despite women of color appearing throughout the video, viewers and fans found the video to be generally racist and insulting to black female empowerment

After the backlash over the weekend, Schumer posted a tearful video reflecting on her work, but not directly mentioning the retaliation of the music video. In the clip, she says:

“I’m going to bed. I just want to say – I’m sober first of all, no drinking – im tired, a lot of work today…I’m grateful. I’m grateful for all of this s***. I’m grateful to be alive right now during this time. I hope you have a good night too.”

Below are videos of the Formation parody and Schumer’s teary-eyed clip, as well as Schumer’s instagram photo and reactions to her “racist” praody:
