Here are four simple words you can use to shut down the haters in your life: "Hi to your dad."

Amy Schumer had a pretty good night at Sunday's Critics' Choice Awards -- no big deal, she only won an MVP Award -- which is probably why she didn't seem too fazed when "Lights Camera Jackson" film critic Jackson Murphy tweeted a sexist joke about her.

"Spent the night with @amyschumer. Certainly not the first guy to write that," the 17-year-old critic captioned a photo of them together.

Still, the Trainwreck star used the opportunity to put Murphy in his place, responding, "I get it. Cause I'm a whore? Glad I took a photo with you. Hi to your dad."

He quickly deleted his original tweet and apologized to Schumer. "Thought you'd like the joke," he wrote. "I should leave the comedy to you!"

He later followed up with another shamed tweet, saying, "I truly apologize for the tweet I posted earlier. I'm not a comedian and it wasn't funny."

Schumer graciously tweeted back, "that's really okay honey. I just remember thinking you and your dad were sweet and it was a bummer to read that"

Sexist tweet aside, the night was all about praising Schumer's work. "What did J.J. Abrams do this year?! So he made a movie that's the biggest-grossing movie of all time," Judd Apatow, who presented the MVP Award, said. "That's one movie, J.J., OK. You're slacking."

"Amy was the writer and the producer and the star of Trainwreck -- it was her first movie!" he explained. "And she's the creator and the star and writer of Inside Amy Schumer, which cranks out brilliant sketch after brilliant sketch, it really is remarkable."

Sadly, Schumer won’t be adding Golden Globes host to that résumé anytime soon. Find out why BFF Jennifer Lawrence says they won’t host together:
