Amy Schumer Hits Out At Glamour Mag For Including Her In Plus-Size Issue
It's definitely 2016, right? Only magazine's are still labelling celebs by their size.
Which is exactly why Amy Schumer hit out at Glamour US this week, after they included her in the 'plus-size' bonus issue sponsored by Lane Bryant, a clothing store who cater for size 12 upwards.
Sharing a pic on Instagram of a list of people, including herself, who were also in the issue, Amy pointed out that the use of these words just aren't healthy for young girls.
"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," she wrote.
After creating quite the conversation on the subject on social media, Amy added:
While a spokesperson for Glamour have since released the below statement:
“First off, we love Amy, and our readers do too — which is why we featured her on the cover of Glamour last year. The cover line on this special edition — which is aimed at women size 12 and up — simply says “Women Who Inspire Us,” since we believe her passionate and vocal message of body positivity IS inspiring, as is the message of the many other women, of all sizes, featured. The edition did not describe her as plus-size. We are sorry if we offended her in any way.”
So no more labels, yeah?
