The Schmooze

Amy Schumer Hits Back At Body Haters With Defiant Bikini Pics

Amy Schumer isn’t here to be shamed.

The actress and comedian, who is featured on the cover of InStyle magazine’s May “Beauty” issue, responded to body-shamers with a series of Instagram bikini shots.

“I feel great,” she wrote. “No haters can f with my baseline.”

The comedian posted the pictures largely in response to swimsuit designer Dana Duggan, who commented on Schumer’s InStyle photoshoot, “Not everyone should be in a swimsuit” and later accused the media of advancing “the fat agenda.”

Schumer appeared half submerged in water on InStyle’s cover, floating along like a cheeky Jewish mermaid next to the quote, “I was always really confident.”

As if in preemptive response to readers who just can’t deal with strong women, Schumer talked to interviewer Jessica Seinfeld about the source of her self-assurance. “My mom lied to me. My parents made me think I was a genius supermodel,” Schumer said. “And it was kind of too late when I found out they had been lying.”

And when Seinfeld asked about the comic’s evening ritual?

“I think a beautiful thing is having a wine,” said Schumer.

No doubt Amy is as excited for tonight’s four cups as the rest of us. After all, what is Passover about if not throwing off your haters and heading to the beach?
