Amy Schumer has been enjoying some fun in the sun on her vacation in Hawaii (along with furniture designer boyfriend, Ben Hanisch), but trolls felt the need to comment on her body. The good thing is, Schumer knows exactly how to deal with criticism.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Schumer shared a picture of herself in her navy one-piece swimsuit as she frolicked in the ocean, and she captioned it with a powerful message for all her haters.
“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,” Schumer wrote, adding, “This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like miss trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!”
You go, Amy! The important part of this message is not really the fact that Schumer called out her critics, but rather that she let them, and the rest of the world, know how proud she is of her healthy body. Her message serves as a reminder to us all that no one can make us feel bad about our bodies because, in our own way, we are all perfect, regardless of our shapes and sizes.
Fans are applauding Schumer for her reaction, with comments including, “You look great, a healthy confident woman. I hope more girls see this. Screw those trolls,” “Thank you for NOT caving to social pressures to look impossible. You look happy and healthy and strong. And you are hysterical and intelligent. You rock!,” and “You look like a beautiful healthy woman. People are assholes.”
Yep, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
