Amy Schumer Responds To 'Barbie' Casting Criticism

Amy Schumer is responding to criticism following rumors of her possible new role as Barbie in an upcoming live-action film.

The backlash was especially strong on social media from many who said she was too "fat" and wouldn't fit the role.

"Is it fat shaming if you know you're not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don't think so," she says in a post.

"I am strong and proud of how I live my life and say what I mean and fight for what I believe in and I have a blast doing it with the people I love. Where's the shame? It's not there. It's an illusion."

"When I look in the mirror I know who I am. I'm a great friend, sister, daughter and girlfriend. I'm a badass comic headlining arenas all over the world and making TV and movies and writing books where I lay it all out there and I'm fearless like you can be."

"Thanks to everyone for the kind words and support and again my deepest sympathy goes out to the trolls who are in more pain than we will ever understand. I want to thank them for making it so evident that I am a great choice."

"It's that kind of response that let's you know something's wrong with our culture and we all need to work together to change it," she says.

"Anyone who has ever been bullied or felt bad about yourself I am out there fighting for you, for us. And I want you to fight for yourself too! We need to laugh at the haters and sympathize with them."

"They can scream as loud as they want. We can't hear them because we are getting shit done. I am proud to lead by example."

"I say if I'm beautiful, I say if I'm strong. You will not determine my story. I will," she concludes.

The comedian and actress was also nominated for two Grammy awards Tuesday for best spoken word album and best comedy album.
