Amy Schumer is responding to social media critics who voiced their issues with her parody of Beyoncé’s “Formation.”

The video, released Friday on Tidal, shows Schumer, 35, and Goldie Hawn recreating Beyoncé’s choreography while dancing in a jungle. Joan Cusack and Wanda Sykes also make appearances in the video.

Users took to Twitter over the weekend to voice their disapproval of the video using the hashtag #AmySchumerGottaGoParty, and on Monday Schumer responded to her online detractors with an Instagram post.

The comedian posted a black-and-white photo in which she wears nothing but underwear alongside a caption explaining that video was a tribute made with “all love.”

 

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

Where's the music?

Later, she kept the risqué theme going, this time posting a video of her doing a quick strip tease in a shirt and sweatpants as she mugged it up with her back toward the camera.

“Where’s the music?” she captioned the cheeky clip.
