Hey! It's Amy Schumer news and it's not controversial! The comedian put up a heart wrenching video on Instagram today with a post thanking the doctors and nurses who have been treating her dad, Gordon Schumer, who has multiple-sclerosis (MS). His health has improved so much under their care, she wrote, that he was able to see her performance on October 18th at Madison Square Garden. The video shows him in the audience that night, while his daughter made history as the first female comedian to ever headline the arena.

During the video, she also gave her dad and mom a very Schumer shout out. "I love you daddy," she said, "Both my parents. I'm a wise ass psycho because you guys raised me this way. So thank you."

Aww!

In the caption, she wrote:

My dad watching me at the garden. I want to thank all his aids and doctors and nurses and Nilda and especially Dr Sadiq for giving my dad a second chance at life. He never used to be able to come watch me perform. But he is reborn with the faith you have given him. Everyone at Tisch MS research center thank you. #samthenurseiloveyou

Gordon Schumer, who now lives in an assisted-living facility, has been living with multiple sclerosis since Amy was 12. In the post, she also thanked his aides for helping him get to the show.

Whatever your thoughts on Amy Schumer as an actress or comedian or a feminist icon or the person behind this unfortunate remake of Beyoncé's "Formation" video, there is nothing controversial about her devotion to her dad. Two thumbs up.

They hate us cause they ain't us
