Amy Schumer slams body-shaming trolls in new Instagram post
Amy Schumer is “blocking out the haters” in a recent Instagram post about body shaming.
The 34-year-old comedian took to the social platform to share a photo from her Hawaiin trip with boyfriend Ben Hanisch. The photo shows Schumer rocking a black one-piece bathing suit while she exits the ocean.
While singling out “trolls” on the Internet, Schumer captioned the photo with a body-positive message.
I meant to write "good morning trolls!" I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger you've never met who triggers something in you that makes you feel powerless and alone. This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like miss trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!
This isn’t the first time Schumer has taken to Instagram to share her thoughts on this issue. In April, the actress pointed to Glamour magazine, calling them out for including her in its “plus-size” issue.
I think there's nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn't feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous
While recently chatting with Maria Shriver on The Today Show, Schumer got emotional about finding inspiration to dress with confidence.
