    Amy Schumer is taking on her haters one by one this week, or so it seems.

    The "Trainwreck" star's latest mission is to slam the recent allegations that she's stolen jokes from three separate comedians.

    The Golden Globe nominee cleared the air via Twitter Wednesday afternoon with the following to-the-point statement:

    "On my life, I have never and would never steal a joke."

    Comedians Wendy Liebman, Tammy Pescatelli and Kathleen Madigan took part in a Twitter conversation (which has now been deleted) claiming that Schumer had used jokes from their acts.

    Earlier this week, the 34-year-old Schumer slammed a critic on Twitter, after the self-proclaimed fan snapped a selfie with her.

    "Spent the night with @amyschumer. Certainly not the first guy to write that," critic "LightsCameraJackson" wrote on his account. He too has since deleted the tweet.

    Schumer retorted, "I get it. Cause I'm a whore? Glad I took a photo with you. Hi to your dad."

    The star's comment caused Jackson to tweet multiple apologies including:

    "I truly apologize. Thought you'd like the joke. I should leave the comedy to you! Thanks for the photo." He added, "I truly apologize for the tweet I posted earlier. I'm not a comedian and it wasn't funny."

    After Jackson's apology, Schumer replied, "That's really okay honey...I just remember thinking you and your dad were sweet and it was a bummer to read that."
