The comedian filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday alleging that she was unfairly treated because of her race.
She claims that Netflix offered her just $500,000 in a ‘talent fee’ for a one-off, hour-long stand-up special in November 2017.
She also cited the cases of male comedians including Ricky Gervais, Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle, all of whom were paid considerably more than her and Schumer.
She is seeking unspecified damages.
