Amy Schumer Sends "Kisses!" to Body-Shaming Trolls In Epic Instagram Post
Amy Schumer just gets us. First of all, her Inside Amy Schumer skits are pee-your-pants hilarious, she killed the real-life hot-mess situation in Trainwreck, and TBH she produces the most relateable gifs ever. The latest reason we're total Amy fans? She knows how to stomp haters in the most perfect way.
While on a Hawaiian vaca with her boyfriend Ben Hanisch, paparazzi snapped pics of her in a stepping out of the ocean black one-piece. Obv, the internet exploded as trolls took this as an opportunity to criticize her smokin' hot bod. Because what better things do they have to do than offer up their unsolicited thoughts on a woman's body while she's trying to enjoy a relaxing beach trip? Ugh. But there's no need for us to get all hot and bothered, because Schumer shut. them. down. herself in the caption of this Instagram post.
She also posted screenshots of her Instagram pic and caption and posted them with an exasperated tweet: "Internet feedback! Paparazzi! What a morning!"
This isn't Shumers first rodeo in the body-shaming ring and it's not her first time raising her voice about body image either. When movie critic Jeffery Wells wrote in a Trainwreck review that "there's no way she'd be an object of heated romantic interest in the real world" (um, WTF?!) she posted the tweet below, saying "I am a size 6 and have no plans of changing. This is it. Stay on or get off. Kisses!"
She also got teary-eyed when talking about her struggle with body confidence on the TODAY show in October 2016, proudly bared it all for the 2016 Pirelli calendar, and, most recently, stood up against the term "plus-size." (It's no surprise she's also one of our favorite females giving Refreshingly Honest Celebrity Body Confessions.)
What it all comes down to is that she feels happy, strong, and healthy-and other people's opinions are 100 percent irrelevant. (If you're totally on board with that, you'll heart our #LoveMyShape campaign.) In Schumer's words, "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." Mic drop.
