What Amy Schumer Has to Say to People Who Body-Shame Her: ‘Good Morning Trolls!’

Amy Schumer is just one of many women in Hollywood who is criticized because of her figure, but she’s made it quite clear that she really doesn’t have time for all the negativity. The comedian has openly spoken out about her opinions—like that time she called out a magazine that categorized her as a “plus sized” woman, or that time she tackled “sizeism” in one of her sketches. Now, the talented actress is once again defending her body after Internet trolls attacked her.

While recently enjoying some downtime at a beach in Hawaii, Amy was photographed wearing a one-piece bathing suit. Unsurprisingly, some people felt the need to criticize Amy’s body, since it doesn’t fit the traditional (and outdated) figure that Hollywood perpetuates. Deciding that she wouldn’t let them get away with their negative comments, Amy took to Instagram to call them out. She posted a photo of herself in the bathing suit, along with a caption that summed up how she felt. 

“I meant to write ‘good morning trolls!’ I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger you’ve never met who triggers something in you that makes you feel powerless and alone,” Amy said. “This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like Miss Trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!”  

Yeah, we definitely agree with Amy on this one. When will people realize that there are so many other things to do with your time, rather than dragging down successful, happy individuals? The next time someone dares to body-shame Amy, we can guarantee that she’ll respond in a way that is both classy and hilarious.
