Glamour magazine recently published a special plus-size issue in association with the clothing store that sounds like a contestant on The Bachelorette, Lane Bryant. They put Cheryl Tiegs’ favorite non-skinny model, Ashley Graham, on the cover, and name-dropped a few famous non-skinnies who “inspire” them. Like, Melissa McCarthy, Adele, and Amy Schumer.
The only problem is, Amy Schumer doesn’t want to be anyone plus-size inspiration, especially since she doesn’t think she belongs in that category to begin with. She’s also very pissed that Glamour didn’t ask permission first before they included her in their special non-skinny issue. Amy was so pissed, she took it to Instagram and publicly slapped at them for their mistake.
“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.”
A spokesperson for Glamour tells People that they didn’t mean to offend Amy. They also sort of slapped back a bit by saying that they never refered to her in the magazine as “plus-size“, and that she was included in the “Women who inspire us” section because of comments she has made in the past about positive body image.
Usually I’d side-eye Amy for not reading what they wrote about her before angrily hissing at them on social media, but Fashionista says that Glamour’s special Chic At Any Size issue costs $12.99. So I don’t blame Amy for not doing her research first. Only a dollar-farting billionaire robot would pay $13 plus tax for a magazine that doesn’t have nipples or wieners in it. Even then, who would pay money for that? You can get that for $0 on the internet.
