Amy Schumer Calls Out Magazine For Including Her In List Of ‘Plus Size’ Stars

Amy Schumer has called out Glamour magazine for including her in a list of ‘plus size’ stars.

The comedian was mentioned on the cover of a ‘Chic At Any Size’ special edition as one of four ‘women who inspire us’, alongside Melissa McCarthy, Adele and Ashley Graham, a decision which has raised eyebrows across social media and among Amy’s fans.

Indeed, the 34-year-old felt her inclusion sent the wrong message to young women, and hit out at the magazine, which featured a re-print of a Q&A done with the star when she featured on the cover of Glamour in 2015, for including her in the special issue without giving her advance notice.

She wrote on Instagram on Tuesday: ‘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.’

Amy also addressed the fact that the newly-released special issue of the magazine features an interview with her that was originally printed in the 2015 issue of the main magazine, for which she served as the cover star, and which appears to have been re-printed without her knowledge: ‘@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.’
