Glamour Editor Says Amy Schumer Is Not Plus-Size Amid Backlash
Glamour Editor in Chief Cindi Leive is clarifying the magazine never dubbed Amy Schumer to be "plus-size," following cover art that spurred some controversy.
Earlier this week, the 34-year-old Trainwreck actress and comedienne expressed her dissatisfaction about being listed with Melissa McCarthy and Adele and Sports Illustrated model Ashley Graham in Glamour magazine's "Chic at Any Size" special issue. She and the rest were dubbed "women who inspire us." A Glamour spokesperson had later told E! News, "We are sorry if we offended her in any way" and clarified the magazine did not actually describe Schumer as "plus size."
"I don't believe that Amy Schumer is plus-size," Glamour Editor in Chief Cindi Leive told Nightline Thursday. "That's not a term that I love. The cover line says, 'Women who inspire us' and we felt the audience for this special edition would be inspired by her completely hilarious and constant consistent message of body positivity."
