On Thursday’s episode of Judge Judy, a man was trying to prove that his friend stole his rare and valuable Yu-Gi-Oh! playing cards but, that wasn’t the most unusual thing about the case — it was actually a very conspicuous celebrity cameo by Trainwreck star Amy Schumer.

We already love Schumer for so many reasons, but her appearance was even more amazing because she wasn’t there to promote anything. She’s just a legit Judge Judy fan, so she attended the show with her sister to have a fangirl experience.

Naturally, Twitter went crazy Thursday when viewers noticed the comedian in the audience.


Schumer responded by posting to her Instagram: “Hell yeah! You know I was in the audience on #judgejudy My sister and I sat in on the cases for the day because we love her!!!!!” -@AmySchumer

An hour later, she posted a video — which she first shared back in May — from her day on set, messing around with the show’s bailiff, Petri Hawkins-Byrd.

Celebrities — they’re just like us.
