Amy Schumer Knocks ‘Glamour’ Plus-Size Controversy on ‘The Tonight Show’

She’s got jokes! Amy Schumer still isn’t over the fact that Glamour magazine included her in its plus-size issue. The comedian referenced her recent feud with the publication during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, April 12.

“For those of you who don’t know who I am, I’m a famous plus-size model,” Schumer, 34, quipped, introducing herself to the crowd.

“I love Glamour magazine, honestly. They’ve been so nice to me. They’ve done so many great things for women. But what I learned is people really don’t like being categorized by ‘plus-size,'” she added to host Jimmy Fallon. “We don’t need these labels. We don’t need them. It should just say what size you are, right? Why?”

Last week, the Trainwreck actress slammed Glamour for including her in its special issue. Her name was listed under a headline that read “Women Who Inspire Us,” along with Melissa McCarthy, Adele and plus-size model Ashley Graham.

“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,” Schumer wrote via Instagram on April 5. “Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous.”

Glamour’s editor-in-chief, Cindi Leive, later apologized and clarified that the company never meant to imply that Schumer was plus-size.

“Her 2015 cover story was included in the edition, aimed at sizes 12 and up, with the coverline ‘Women Who Inspire Us’ bc her longtime message of body positivity—& talking back to body haters—IS inspiring. (To me, too!)” Leive tweeted.

“To be clear, size 6-8 is not plus. (Even size 12—frequent size of ‘plus’ models—is smaller than average American woman!)” she continued. “But women of all sizes can be inspired by one another’s words. So sorry if implication was otherwise, Amy.”
