Amy Schumer Wants Us to Know That She Isn’t Plus-Size, OK? OK??
Most female celebs would consider being called an inspirational woman a major compliment. But Amy Schumer isn’t one of them. Well, contextually, anyway.
On the cover of Glamour’s new special edition plus-size fashion issue (created in collaboration with retailer Lane Bryant), Schumer’s name appears alongside Melissa McCarthy’s, Adele’s, and Ashley Graham’s under the heading “Women Who Inspire Us.” The problem? Schumer isn’t technically “plus size” — and she’s not OK with being considered as such.
The comedian and actress took to Instagram Tuesday morning to vent her frustration, clarifying that she definitely isn’t a plus-size person — not that there’s anything wrong with that!

“I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size,” Schumer wrote. “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. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous.”
