The saga continues…

ICYMI: Amy Schumer got a lot of heat this week after being accused of stealing jokes from at least three different comedians!

Wendy Liebman, Kathleen Madigan, and Tammy Pescatelli tweeted (and then deleted) about the Trainwreck star hijacking old material — the "evidence" of which was shown in a video that surfaced on the web earlier this week.

After the story went viral, Wendy clarified her personal remarks, saying she never actually accused the Inside Amy Schumer star of joke theft and chalked it up to "parallel thinking."

After the show, Tammy posted (then deleted) a few Tweets firing back at Schumer for "career shaming" her. Tammy also pointed out that Schumer opened for her at a Chicago Improv studio for a week — and they "have footage":

Classic Schumer, right?

Sadly, you can add Amy Schumer's name to the list of those accused of ripping off others' work and passing it off as their own.

This isn't the first time people have brought up the similarities between Amy's standup and that of late comic Patrice O'Neal.

But in a new video making its way around the web, some of the Trainwreck star's material is also juxtaposed with those of comics Wendy Liebman and Kathleen Madigan.

Is it coincidence? Parallel thinking? Or did Amy straight up jack these jokes??

Watch the NSFW video and decide for yourself (below)!
