Amy Schumer is sued for posting two paparazzi photos of herself and son Gene on Instagram

Amy Schumer has been sued for posting two paparazzi photos of herself on her Instagram page to promote her store’s $30 sweater, according to a new lawsuit obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.

Photographer Felipe Ramales filed a copyright infringement suit against the comedienne in the Southern District of New York on Tuesday, claiming Schumer posted the images without licensing them from him. 

Back in November, the 38-year-old posted Ramales’ photos of her pushing her son Gene in a stroller while wearing a grey sweater that read: ‘Plus Size Brain,’ telling fans the sweater was available for $30 on her online store. 

Ramales is demanding a trial by jury and wants the Hollywood star to foot his legal bill and pay him $150,000 for each photo she posted.

Ramales details in his suit how he captured the photo of Schumer outside of her New York City home, saying he went on to copyright the image.

Schumer had posted two of Ramales’ images on her page on November 29, captioning it: ‘If you want your own #plussizebrain sweatshirt go to amyschumer.com store! Soooo comfy.’ 

The suit reads: ‘As a direct and proximate cause of the infringement by the Defendants of Plaintiff’s copyright and exclusive rights under copyright, Plaintiff is entitled to damages and Defendants profits pursuant… for the infringement.

‘Alternatively, Plaintiff is entitled to statutory damages up to $150,000 per work infringed for Defendants willful infringement of the Photographs.’ 

Meanwhile, Schumer is self-isolating in New York City with her husband Chris Fischer and her 11-month-old son Gene.

The family has been staying safe at home and going on regular walks with their dog Tati, who joined the family in 2017.

She shared a photo of herself at the doctor’s office to her Instagram and explained in the caption: ‘We are gonna freeze embryos hopefully.’

On Valentine’s Day, she gave her fans an update.

‘They retrieved 35 eggs from me. Not bad for the old gal right? Then 26 fertilized! Whoah right? For all of those we got 1 normal embryo,’ Schumer wrote alongside a selfie. 

‘We feel lucky we got 1. But what a drop off right?’ she added.
