A US magazine has found itself in the excruciatingly awkward situation of having offended Amy Schumer – and the whole world knowing about it.
The actress and comedian made a series of posts on Instagram and Twitter after Glamour magazine featured Amy in their 'plus-size issue'.
The funny woman took issue with the fact that a) she is not technically plus-size, and b) that the magazine didn’t tell her about it.
"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. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous."
The magazine’s editor responded, saying they never intended to offend the Trainwreck star and that she merely inspired them and their readers.
"We love Amy Schumer, & would never want to offend her. To be clear, the special edition never called her plus-size... Her 2015 cover story was included in the edition, aimed at sizes 12 and up, with the coverline ‘Women who Inspire Us’ bc her longtime message of body positivity—& talking back to body haters—IS inspiring. (To me, too!)
"To be clear, size 6-8 is not plus. (Even size 12—frequent size of “plus” models—is smaller than average American woman!)... But women of all sizes can be inspired by one another’s words. So sorry if implication was otherwise, Amy."
Amy seemed pretty chill about the whole ordeal, later summing up her thoughts on Instagram – and sharing a random photo of herself running along the beach pulling a kite. That’s why we love you, Amy.
