Amy Schumer: Don't call me plus size

Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8.

Amy Schumer has hit out at Glamour magazine after they labelled her “plus size.”
The magazine released its first plus-size focused special edition, listing A-listers like Melissa McCarthy and Adele on the cover, as well as Amy.
However, here’s the problem:
“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," she wrote on her Instagram account.
The actress went on to explain that Glamour had "put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn't feel right to me".
"Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size," she wrote.
"What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous."
Glamour have since responded to her comments, saying, "First off, we love Amy, and our readers do too -- which is why we featured her on the cover of Glamour last year."
"The cover line on this special edition -- which is aimed at women size 12 and up -- simply says 'Women Who Inspire Us,' since 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 statement said.
"The edition did not describe her as plus-size. We are sorry if we offended her in any way."
