Ashley Graham Calls Out Amy Schumer Over The Term 'Plus-Size'

​The size 18 beauty isn't impressed with Schumer's refusal to be called 'plus-size'


The term 'plus-size' is often mired in controversy, with many models either choosing to embrace it or campaign for its disappearance from the fashion industry.

And if there's one model who has a lot to say on the matter, it's beautiful body activist Ashley Graham.


Earlier this year, comedian Amy Schumer spoke out on Instagram against Glamour magazine's decision to include her in their first annual plus-size issue. 

'@glamourmag 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?' Schumer said. 


In response, Graham – who featured in the ELLE Body Issue last year – has admitted she felt irritated at the comedian's reluctance to be referenced as 'plus-size'. 

'I can see both sides, but Amy talks about being a big girl in the industry.

'You thrive on being a big girl, but when you're grouped in with us, you're not happy about it? That, to me, felt like a double standard,' she told Cosmopolitan.

Hours after the story was published, Schumer took to Twitter to say she understands the Sports Illustrated model's opinion and fully supports how she feels.

Looks like there's no bad blood here, then.
