Ashley Graham Calls Out Amy Schumer for Her Plus Size Complaint

Ashley Graham Calls Out Amy Schumer for Her Plus Size Complaint

Ashley Graham puts her bikini body on display in her cover feature for Cosmopolitan magazine’s August 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 28-year-old model had to share with the mag…

On Amy Schumer calling out Glamour for saying she’s “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.”

On calling herself a model and not a plus size model: “Just because I’m not calling myself plus size doesn’t mean I’m not representing a woman who is… I’m giving curvy women a seat at a table that we’ve never been invited to before—a table with high-end fashion people who have never considered us beautiful.”

On the trolls who remark on her interracial relationship with husband Justin Ervin: “One comment on Instagram was ‘I knew a girl her size could only be with a black guy.’ I think that’s so ugly. But we talk about the fact that I’m white and he’s black all the time. I’ve seen how racist America is. It’s opened my eyes to how ignorant I have been, how white privilege has taken over a lot of my thoughts and actions because it’s just something that I take for granted.”

On a previous relationship with an alcoholic: “He was abusive in more than one way… He threw a couch on me. He came home drunk. I was sitting on it, and he flipped it upside down. I remember my elbow being jammed but thinking, He didn’t hit me; he was just really angry, you know? You hear stories of women who say the exact same thing—I wasn’t showing up with bruises, he wasn’t beating me every day. Looking back, I should’ve left, but I was an insecure woman in a terrible relationship who did not know herself.”

    Ok, so you don’t want to call YOURSELF a plus size model but you criticize others who don’t want to be called plus size? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

    What a bunch of hypocrites! What I get from all of this is plus size women don’t like to be plus size but they won’t change their lifestyle and eating habit so that’s why they won’t stop bitc*ing about body positivity and fat acceptance bulls*it!

    fat bitches need to stick together >:|

    But the magazine never used the term “plus sized”. They said something like “beautiful at any size”. Amy simply didn’t like the fact that she was included in a group of celebrities who were overweight. I agree with Ashley. Why does Amy constantly talk about how fat she is and then gets mad when she’s grouped in with other big celebrities? She wants it both ways.

    does this one ever shut up about her fatness?

  • Jess

    Exactly!

  • siennagold

    let’s stop being politically correct. they are fat.

  • jane

    but she looks ok fat, some of them don’t. she actually has a nice body. i’d say she’s a bit heavy but not fat. and she’s much prettier than Amy S. – that girl is body and face ugly.
