Amy Schumer Fights Back Against Body-Shaming Internet Trolls With Swimsuit Picture

Posted: Updated:

Amy Schumer has no time for your negativity, thank you very much.

On Wednesday, the 34-year-old "Trainwreck" star took to Instagram to address body-shaming Internet trolls who were critiquing paparazzi photos from her recent vacation with boyfriend Ben Hanisch in Hawaii.

Posting a photo of herself in a one-piece black swimsuit, the actress told her "trolls," "I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger you've never met who triggers something in your that makes you feel powerless and alone."

Schumer continued, "This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like Miss Trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!"

The photo has already gained 144,000 likes and numerous comments of supports from Amy's fans.

"Thank you for existing just the way you are!" wrote one commenter.

"In a world filled with unrealistic examples of womankind, you shine in beauty, grace and fearlessness. Thank you for being a role model my daughters can look up to!" chimed in another.

This isn't the first time the comedienne has gotten real about her body image, however. Back in April, she called out Glamour magazine for including her in their "plus-size" edition without permission.

"Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8," she wrote on Instagram. "Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool Glamour, not glamourous."
