Kim Kardashian, Julianne Moore and Amy Schumer take to social media for Gun Violence Awareness Day.

Comedienne Amy Schumer brought attention to Gun Violence Awareness Day by sharing a snap of her pants-less on social media.

The Trainwreck star has been an outspoken advocate of stricter gun control laws in the U.S., and to help promote the national movement on Thursday (01Jun16), she participated in the #WearOrange campaign, in an effort to remember victims of shootings as well as spread awareness about gun safety.

Amy took to Twitter to post a photo of herself only from the neck down, wearing an orange sports bra and nothing else, creatively covering her private parts while showing off the curve of her behind.

She added the caption, "Today please #WearOrange for gun safety."

Amy later posted photos of other people wearing orange, and a final shot featured herself alongside her sister Kim Caramele and other friends on a film set, all wearing orange items.

The caption read: "Me and my honeys on set like to #wearorange thinking of you today and everyday Mayci and Jillian," referring to Jillian Johnson, 33, and Mayci Breaux, 21, who were shot and killed by an armed gunman in Louisiana while watching a screening of her hit film Trainwreck last summer (15).

Since then, Amy has heavily weighed in on the ongoing gun control debate and joined forces with her cousin, New York Senator Chuck Schumer, to campaign for stricter gun laws in America.

Meanwhile, other stars such as Kim Kardashian, Julianne Moore, Ron Howard, Sarah Silverman, Brooke Shields, and Spike Lee also took to social media on Thursday to share their support for the #WearOrange campaign.
