Amy Schumer has lashed out at Glamour magazine for including her in a line-up of plus-sized women who are ‘chic at any size’, stating she is done with being labelled based on her size.

The size 10 funnywoman was included in the mag’s ‘plus size’ issue along with the likes of Adele and Melissa McCarthy – which raised eyebrows from Amy and fans alike.


‘I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size,’ says the 34-year-old. ‘Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 [Aus size 20] in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8 [Aus size 10 and 12]. @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 glamorous.’

She then took to Twitter to vent her frustrations:

‘Thanks for sharing your thoughts everyone except the people who told me what I “should feel” or what I “should have focused on”. Bottom line seems to be we are done with these unnecessary labels which seem to be reserved for women.’

The notoriously body-positive comedian’s position in the magazine was first brought to light by writer Leah Degrazia last week, who questioned why Amy was featured alongside the other, truly plus-sized, inspirational women.

The magazine has since issued an apology to the actress saying that they love Amy, and the issue never described her as ‘plus-size’.
