Amy Schumer has branded anyone who doesn’t call themselves a feminist an ‘insane person’. Speaking on BBC Newsnight, the US comedian said she’s very comfortable defining herself as a feminist, as the term just means a belief in equality of the sexes.

“I think anyone who’s not a feminist is an insane person,” she told presenter Emily Maitlis. “I think they don’t know what feminism means. It just means equality for women but I think that word has a whole different meaning for different people.

“Someone will say to me, ‘you’re not a feminist are you?’ and I’m like: ‘What does that mean to you? Of course I am, of course I want equal rights for women’. I really think a lot of people don’t know what it means, it’s just words”

“I feel very comfortable speaking as a comedian and a feminist because those are two things that I completely am,” she continued. “Those are two words that definitely define me.” Schumer also spoke about the upcoming presidential election, joking that she would move to Spain if Donald Trump is elected.

"My act will change because I'll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere. It's beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It's too crazy,” she said. Schumer has been an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton and said that the criticisms levelled against her are always unfair.

"I haven't had a conversation with anyone who doesn't like Hillary where they've had anything meaningful to say," Schumer explained. "I think she's caught so much flack for so long now, because she isn't what they think of as a woman.

"They were mad she wasn't making cookies, but she was like, 'Oh no, I'm getting healthcare for every mother in the country,'" she added. "They don't like how she speaks or dresses. It's everything except how she would be as a president."
