Amy Schumer Slams ‘Glamour’ for Putting Her in Their Plus-Size Issue: ‘Not Cool, Not Glamorous’

Canceling her subscription? Amy Schumer isn’t happy with Glamour magazine for naming her in their plus-size issue. The comedian blasted the company via Instagram on Tuesday, April 5.

“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,” the Trainwreck actress, 34, captioned a photo of the mag.

“Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts?” she continued. “Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous.” (One day earlier, Schumer joked that she was “pissed” that another magazine didn’t include her in a “Bad Celebrity Chins” layout.)

Glamour magazine included Schumer in a “Women Who Inspires Us” section. Other stars that they featured included Melissa McCarthy, Adele and Sports Illustrated plus-size swimsuit model Ashley Graham. (Back in February, ’80s supermodel Cheryl Tiegs blasted Graham for her fuller figure and later apologized.)

Last year, Schumer revealed that she’s struggled with body image all her life. “I can’t perform my best or be confident if I’m not sure if I’m pulling at something,” the Comedy Central star told NBC special anchor Maria Shriver in October 2015. “Sometimes I would just want to throw in the towel and say, ‘I’m not going to do stand-up tonight.'”

Luckily, stylist Leesa Evans helped her step out of her shell. “Leesa had given me this gift of showing me how to dress and feel good. She didn’t have to do this, but she just did,” Schumer said. “She shopped for my sister also. And seeing my little sister [Kim Caramele] wearing a little blazer and a shirt and looking just like a strong, beautiful woman, I realized that holding myself back was also holding her back.”
