Amy Schumer's Not Laughing About Glamour's Plus-Size Labeling
After Schumer was listed with plus-size entertainers on the cover of the magazine, she said labels are unnecessary and seem to be reserved for women.By Cody LaGrow | April 6, 2016
Amy Schumer does look amazing — so amazing that Glamour magazine included her name with other plus-size performers on its cover. The only problem? Schumer isn't plus-size.
Schumer wrote on her Instagram: "Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag ... it doesn't feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size?"
Schumer — listed alongside names like Melissa McCarthy, Adele and Ashley Graham — claimed Glamour didn't let her know about the mention in the magazine.
