Amy Schumer is showing off her beach body. Currently on vacation in Hawaii with her boyfriend, the actress shared on Instagram a grainy paparazzi photo of herself in a swimsuit. Foreseeing the comments to come, she beat her “trolls” to the punch:
“I meant to write “good morning 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 you that makes you feel powerless and alone. This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like Miss Trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!”
While the post still attracted negative comments, the majority were positive. “You look amazing! Always remember: Trolls are gonna troll,” wrote one user, while another added, “You look wonderful and we all have a little Trunchbull in us!!!”
The actress has never been one to shy away from openly addressing her body image. In April, she criticized Glamour magazine for including her in their plus-size issue (she is a size 6 or 8). The magazine later offered a clarification that their intention wasn’t to describe her within that category.
