She thanks her family for her humour: "My family, they are absolutely hilarious". Adams' mother, Constance Adams, told BuzzFeed News that her daughter is "extremely talented".

Adams has another message for people with unsolicited advice: they should keep it to themselves. "Unless they have ice cream, then I'm all ears." 👏🏿
