Amy Schumer Continues to Protest ‘Plus Size’ Label on ‘Tonight Show’ (Video)

“Trainwreck” star explains why she takes issue with Glamour magazine putting her in edition with “plus size” women

Amy Schumer continued to speak out against being labeled as “plus size” during an appearance on “The Tonight Show” on Tuesday.

“I love Glamour Magazine, honestly,” Schumer said. “They’ve been so nice to me. They’ve done so many great things for women. But what I learned is that people really 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.”

Last week, Schumer  took to social media Tuesday to blast Glamour for featuring her in its “Chic At Any Size” special issue.

“Plus size is considered size 16 in America,” Schumer wrote on Instagram. “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.”

According to The Huffington Post, inside the issue of the magazine, editor-in-chief Cindi Leive wrote that the issue is full of “96 pages of super-chic ideas to help you hit it out of the fashion ballpark, morning and night — all courtesy of fashion experts, editors and stylish women sizes 12 to 22.”

Last year, the “Trainwreck” actress took home the Trailblazer of the Year Award at the 2015 Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London, where she spoke candidly about her weight — and being targeted by women’s magazines.

“Yeah, I make fun of women’s magazines a lot,” she had said. “They’re great fodder, and some just make you feel bad for just being born with a p–sy.”
