Lena responds to Glamour calling Amy Schumer 'plus size'

A couple of days ago, Amy Schumer responded to her inclusion in Glamour Magazine's "'plus size' bonus issue sponsored by Lane Bryant" with the following tweets...

She also posted the below to Instagram, captioned: "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. @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? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous."


Speaking at The Hollywood Reporter's 35 Most Powerful People event in N.Y.C. last night, Dunham told PEOPLE magazine: "I think fashion should be for women and it should be for all women... We did an interview recently on Lenny with Beth Ditto who just launched a line that is technically plus-sized but what she really cares about is just putting women in clothes they can feel good about because so often we've assumed women who aren't size zeros just want to put themselves in a tent."

The 29-year-old added: "I think Amy's entire thing is trying to sort of like break down barriers and be bold about her own opinions and what I think she was trying to do was stand up for women and say we're not supposed be categorized in this role, we're supposed to just be allowed to exist."
