Amy Schumer took down 17-year-old film critic Jackson Murphy after he posted a photo of himself posing with the comedian at the Critics' Choice Awards on Sunday and jokingly slut-shamed Schumer. Murphy's rude tweet did not go over well with fans or the comedienne.

The teen movie critic, who is best known as Lights Camera Jackson, posted his attempt at a joke that was quickly deleted.

Murphy posted his selfie with Schumer to his over 5,000 followers with the caption, "Spent the night with @amyschumer. Certainly not the first guy to write that."

Schumer, who just won a Critics Choice Award for Best Actress in a Comedy for her film Trainwreck, appeared to be a little hurt by his remark.

The 34-year-old comedian responded to Murhphy's tweet by writing, "Cause I'm a whore? Glad I took a photo with you. Hi to your dad."

Schumer's comedy often includes funny sexual jokes about herself, but she possibly didn't appreciate the teenager slut-shaming her due to having a new boyfriend. Her 29-year-old new beau, Brian Hanisch, accompanied her to the awards show.

Fans of the comedian jumped all over Murphy on social media for his unsavory tweet, with the film critic deleting his original post and issuing an apology to Schumer.

Jackson issued an apology to Schumer and she was a good sport about the incident.

Murphy, whose father Dan Murphy is a sportscaster in Albany, is the youngest member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association. He joined the association in 2013 and votes for the Critics Choice Awards.

The 17-year-old is also a contributor to CBS' The Early Show, starting at the tender age of 8 years old in 2006 doing reviews for Radio Disney.

In 2010, shock jock Howard Stern went off on the young film critic and even called him a "freak".

This wasn't the first offensive tweet made by the young critic. He previously tweeted birthday greetings to 12 Years a Slave actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor, making a slave joke before apologizing and deleting the post.
