Amy Schumer blasts Glamour magazine for including her in their ‘plus size’ issue – Apr 6, 2016

Amy Schumer is once again letting women know they should feel comfortable in their own skin.

On Tuesday, the HBO star shared a photo of her name on the cover of Glamour‘s “Chic At Any Size” issue on Twitter and Instagram. The only problem? The editors didn’t let her know that was happening, nor did they let her know they consider her to be “plus size.”

Celebs also mentioned on the cover are Adele, Ashley Graham and Melissa McCarthy.

“I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women,” Schumer wrote in the caption. “Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8.”

She continued: “Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size, what are your thoughts? Mine are not cool Glamour not glamorous.”

Many people responded to her message in outrage.

Glamour editor Cindi Leive even responded with a series of her own tweets.

Schumer isn’t the first celebrity to experience this kind of thing because of her body size.

Former Victoria Secret’s model Tyra Banks has been mocked by tabloids for fluctuating between a size 6 and 13 for years. In 2015, Banks admitted on Live With Kelly and Michael that she thinks she looks better with more weight on her face and body.

“I look like a different person now because I have more weight on,” she said to the hosts.

This also isn’t the first time the Trainwreck star has spoken out about being body-positive.

Last year, she teamed up with Goodwill of Southern California to help educate and inspire women through fashion. She said she wanted to spread the message that Hollywood’s beauty standards can be unrealistic.

“No one’s just naturally thin. Everyone’s starving,” she said on the Today show. “[I] want to make everybody laugh and feel better, which is my goal across the board with everything.”

It’s a message she echoed in her final tweets on Tuesday about the Glamour debacle.
