Amy Schumer and Ashley Graham are two of Hollywood鈥檚 most popular ladies, both making their way to the top of their respective areas of the industry. But now the women are responding to each other publicly as these body-positive gals address the plus-size issue. With the popular model taking on the funny lady鈥檚 past comments about NOT being plus-size, Amy has now responded in the BEST way possible.

Amy Schumer

It all started when Amy was included with Ashley and other awesome women in Glamour鈥檚 鈥減lus size鈥 issue. Schumer, not wanting to disrespect the others, felt the need to point out that she is not, in fact, 鈥減lus size.鈥 鈥淚 think there鈥檚 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. @glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn鈥檛 feel right to me.鈥


In her recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Ashley brought up the incident saying, 鈥淚 can see both sides, but Amy talks about being a big girl in the industry. You thrive on being a big girl, but when you鈥檙e grouped in with us, you鈥檙e not happy about it? That, to me, felt like a double standard.鈥

Amy Schumer decided to respond, but instead of getting nasty or indulging in icky insults, the comedian and actress decided to take the high road. Posting her reaction to Twitter, Amy told her followers, 鈥淚 totally understand Ashley鈥檚 feelings. I don鈥檛 group myself in with her because she is unbelievably beautiful. Nothing but respect for her鈥 *slow clap* Well done, Amy!

Whether Amy has a point or whether Ashely has a point鈥 Well, they really both do 鈥 and that鈥檚 why they鈥檙e both pretty darn awesome.
