Amy Schumer does look amazing — so amazing that Glamour magazine included her name with other plus-size performers on its cover. The only problem? Schumer says she isn't plus-size.
Schumer wrote on her Instagram: "Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag ... it doesn't feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size?"
Schumer — listed alongside names like Melissa McCarthy, Adele and Ashley Graham — claimed Glamour didn't let her know about the mention in the magazine.
A Glamour spokesperson told People: "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."
Glamour honored Schumer with the Trailblazer award at the magazine's Women of the Year awards last June.
Schumer later posted a video prancing around in her bikini and said, "Bottom line seems to be that these labels are unnecessary and reserved for women #muchlove."
