Amy Schumer Edits Her Instagram Post To Call Out The Body-Shamers

"I think I look strong and healthy and also like Miss Trunchbull from 'Matilda.' Kisses!

For all the body-shaming Internet trolls out there, Amy Schumer's got an important message for you.

According to Mashable, Schumer took to Instagram to post a photo of herself on the beach, rocking a bathing suit with the caption "BFG" (big friendly giant) on Monday. Soon enough, the picture collected a slew of negative, body-shaming comments.

But, in true Schumer fashion, the comedian and actress fired back at the trolls, editing the caption to read:

"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. This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like Miss Trunchbull from 'Matilda.' Kisses!"


It's refreshing to see celebrities, models, and many others standing up against body-shamers and promoting a positive, healthy lifestyle for both men and women. 

Last month, model Iskra Lawrence shut down someone who called her a "fat cow," writing in an Instagram post: "The message is who gives an F what anyone else thinks of you. YOU are the only one who decides your self worth." 

And their messages have been well-received.

In just 22 hours, Schumer's post received over 5 thousand comments, including: "We all need to love our bodies and be comfortable in our own skin. Thank you for showing the world that you have championed this!" among other reassuring, motivational words. 

And if Schumer could silence even just one more body-shamer, we're moving in the right direction.
