Amy Schumer Slams Glamour Magazine For Labeling Her ‘Plus Size’

(98.7AMP RADIO) – Amy Schumer is not too happy with Glamour at the moment.

The 34-year-old actress/comedian took to Instagram Tuesday afternoon to share that she’d been included in the mag’s “Chic At Any Size” issue, which features plus sized actresses, models and singers.

“Women Who Inspire Us: Melissa McCarthy, Adele, Amy Schumer & Ashley Graham,” the coverline reads.

The problem? They didn’t exactly ask Schumer’s permission.

“I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthywomen. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8,” she wrote. “@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.”

 

The issue, which was sponsored by Lane Bryant, reportedly features an interview with the Trainwreck star from last August. It also offers interviews with Melissa McCarthy, Lena Dunham and Christina Hendricks from 2015, 2014 and 2011, respectively.

For their part, Glamour has not responded to Schumer’s comments.
