Glamour Apologizes To Amy Schumer For 'Any Size' Insult On Cover

Glamour is apologizing to Amy Schumer after the comedian took issue with the inclusion of her name on the cover of the magazine's "Chic at Any Size" special.

Schumer was listed alongside Melissa McCarthy, Adele and Ashley Graham. But despite the company, the comedian wasn't pleased because she didn't see herself as "plus size."

"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 said.

"Glamour magazine 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? My thoughts are not cool glamour, not glamourous."

Glamour editor Cindi Leive has now apologized to Schumer but correctly notes the issue never refers to Schumer as plus size.

"Her 2015 cover story was included in the edition, aimed at sizes 12 and up, with the cover line 'Women who Inspire Us' because her longtime message of body positivity and talking back to body haters IS inspiring," Leive says.

"To be clear, size 6-8 is not plus. Even size 12 -- frequent size of 'plus' models -- is smaller than average American woman. But women of all sizes can be inspired by one another’s words. So sorry if implication was otherwise, Amy."
