'I don't even have a uterus': Amy Schumer responds to claim that she is behind national tampon shortage

Comedian and actress Amy Schumer has officially responded to being "blamed" for the national tampon shortage — and yes, it is all as strange as it sounds.

The hubbub started earlier this week, when Time reported on the supply-chain issue that's made America's most popular tampon brand, Tampax, by P&G, so hard to come by. In it, a P&G spokesperson was quoted as saying the brand's "retail sales growth has exploded" following the success of a campaign launched with Schumer in 2020. That's all the New York Post needed to run its headline, "Why Amy Schumer is getting blamed for the national tampon shortage," for other outlets to quickly follow — and for the comedian to weigh in on the narrative.
