Last night, Amy Schumer talked again about her response heard round the net with Jimmy Fallon while she was womanspreading all over the place in red hot heels.
In the clip, which The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has titled, “Amy Schumer Rejects Glamour’s ‘Plus-size’ Label,” she does give Glamour credit for being “one of the good ones,” as she has put it in the past.
After all, she did open their awards last year and Glamour was her first ever cover pre-Elle and sucking on a robot for GQ. A bajillion years ago Glamour showed a woman with soft stomach and people LOVED it.
The Schum who has been romantically tied to Amber Rose, a woodworker, and late night lobster takeout, said this:
I love Glamour magazine honestly they’ve been so nice to me, they’ve done so many great things for women. What I learned is that people don’t like being classified as ‘plus-size.’ We don’t need these labels, we don’t need them. It should just say what size you are.
EIC Cindi Leive has made it clear, (even thought anyone looking at the cover could figure it out,) that the magazine didn’t specifically call her anything other than an inspirational woman, but she was in the mix with Adele and Melissa McCarthy in a magazine sponsored by Lane Bryant, targeted at women who wear sizes 12 and up, which is what Amy has taken issue with.
Glamour has responded this way:
“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.”
If anything comes out of Amy’s strong reaction to her cover line on Glamour’s (beautiful,) At Any Size issue, we hope that it’s a range of bodies incorporated in fashion things wearing all the fly boob cages ALL the time. But it’s definitely worth checking out the issue filled with practical clothing women are looking for. What do you think, Rioters?
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
