Amy Schumer (left) and her doppelganger Amelia
Hollywood star Amy Schumer has found her doppelgänger, according to a now viral tweet.
A truck driver, named only as Amelia, was photographed at a gas station in Tennessee, which then posted the snap online.
Amelia regularly makes pitstops at Celina 52 Truck Stop, whose staff posted about their customer on Twitter.
And while the message was ostensibly about the driver’s teardrop tattoo, Twitter users soon became much more interested in her uncanny resemblence to the actress and comedien.
The post has now been liked more than 17,500 thousand times and shared more than 6,000 times, as viewers shared their bewilderment at the spitting image.
Here’s what they had to say:
The craziest shit I’ve seen in 2021 https://t.co/5EesXxWQXW — dee (@dee)
I knew her comedy career wouldn’t last, but I’m happy she’s doing what she loves!! https://t.co/aixWzGY8oW — The Picasio Thompson Experience™️ (@The Picasio Thompson Experience™️)
Absolute roller coaster from start to finish https://t.co/2iod9YX9VP — quinnm.eth (@quinnm.eth)
Others honed in on other interesting elements of the picture, including a sign in the background reading: “Stop pooping in our parking lot”.
The post eventually made its way to a baffled Schumer, who responded:
Wait, what’s going on at a truck stop? -me😢 — Amy Schumer (@Amy Schumer)
After their initial tweet went viral, the truck stop posted again telling people to stop comparing Amelia to Schumer.
They wrote: “Quit calling her Amy Schumer. Amy Schumer doesn’t have a tattoo for accidentally running over a pedestrian.”

Danny Brine, the truck stop’s manager, told the New York Post that Celina 52 is a pseudonym used for the real truck stop and confirmed Amelia’s “teardrop tattoo story is real”.
