Amy Schumer Blasts Magazine For Considering Her Inspiring?
Amy Schumer does not want to be part of the list “Chic at Any Size” that Glamour magazine put out. While it was done with great intention, Schumer blasted the magazine for even thinking her size is considered “plus-size.”Advertisement
Glamour magazine recently included the star in the list of plus-sized women who inspire people. Though the magazine had no intention of hurting the star, they ended up spoiling her mood. According to Page Six, the 34-year-old star slammed the magazine for using cover line that states, “Women Who Inspire Us: Melissa McCarthy, Adele, Amy Schumer & Ashley Graham.”
The actress took to social media to convey her protest. Schumer posted on Instagram, “I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size,” while saying this, she also mentioned, “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 [sic].”
While Schumer may not be happy with the cover line, Glamour executive said they love the star. They also mentioned that they included her in the cover line because she was inspiring when she spoke at Glamour’s women of the year awards in June.
The magazine salutes her thought on body positivity and did not want to call her plus size. The Editor-in-chief of Glamour mentioned in a statement on Twitter, “We love Amy Schumer, & would never want to offend her. To be clear, @glamourmag special edition never called her plus-size.”
Amy Schumer took to Twitter to talk against the labeling of women according to their size. She mentioned, “Bottom line seems to be we are done with these unnecessary labels which seem to be reserved for women.” Suffice to say, Amy seems to be disheartened with the publication’s blunder.
